BADA SWING! Comes to 54 Below This Month  Image

54 Below will present Bada Swing! on June 27, 2024. This performance is a lounge-jazz musical about two disgusting old men. The boys are back, baby! Bobby Bingus and Tommy Linguini, two 1960's crooners whose careers, livers, and opinions have seen better days. This once-in-a-lifetime reunion concert promises you undeniable chemistry while performing their greatest hits. However after a deep-seated conflict is revealed, the audience will witness two legends attempt to avoid vulnerability at all costs. Bobby and Tommy’s decline mirrors the evolution of gender and acceptable conduct. Everything is sure to go perfectly. We guarantee it!

'Bada Swing!' written/performed by musicians/comedians, Josh Nasser (Comedy Central, Vulture) and Michelle Chan Bennett (Vulture, UCB) with music direction from Andy Bell (Ars Nova) as well as direction from Emily Olcott (Ars Nova, UCB). The show will feature a live band and an opening set from amazing guests Rose Kelso (Comedy Central, The Tonight Show, Adult Swim) & Two Tree Hill (TikTok).
