Andy Mientus, Alex Brightman & Jason Gotay to Perform the Songs of F. Michael Haynie at 54 Below
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, will present THE SONGS OF F. MICHAEL HAYNIE featuring Andy Mientus (Les Miserables, "SMASH"), Alex Brightman (Matilda, Big Fish), Jason Gotay (Bring It On, "Peter Pan LIVE!"), and more on Friday, January 23rd at 11:30pm.
After ten long years, F. Michael Haynie is finally moving his singer/songwriter alter ego out the Village and LES. So if you missed his unique blend of country-folk-jazz-pop at the Bitter End, Rockwood, the West 4th Street Subway Station, or that time he was on MTV's "Made", this is the concert you've never known you were waiting for: F. Michael Haynie LIVE at 54 Below! A night of all-original music written by F., with guest stars from stage, screen, and Washington Square Park, at Broadway's premier Supper Club. Don't expect to hear the story of F.'s life, or a teary wander down ex-girlfriend lane-just an evening of music and merriment. So Holler if you wanna have a Wicked good time, but Dogfight for your tickets before they get Carrie'd away. Be there or be Peter Pan Live on NBC!
(Believe it or not, F.'s credits include Holler If Ya Hear Me, Wicked, Dogfight, Carrie, and "Peter Pan LIVE!" on NBC.)
In addition to Mientus, Brightman, and Gotay, F. will be joined on stage by Andrew Kober (Les Miserables, Hair), Drew Gasparini (Crazy, Just Like Me), and Allison Scagliotti (Jasper in Deadland, "Warehouse 13"), plus additional performers to be announced. The evening will feature music direction by Justin Goldner and is produced by Erica Rotstein.
THE SONGS OF F. MICHAEL HAYNIE plays 54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on January 23, 2015 at 11:30pm. Tickets start at $20 and there is two drink minimum.
