Benjamin Eakeley: BROADWAY SWINGER, VOL. 2, AUGUST 14 AT 7:00PM

Broadway Swinger, Vol. 2: All Of Me

Celebrating Songs of the 1930s

Benjamin Eakeley and his jazz band are back! Join the boys as they swing through the 1930s-a decade of big band music that lifted spirits out of the Great Depression and became the foundation of the great American songbook. Featuring songs by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Sammy Fein, and more, Broadway Swinger, Vol. 2 takes a page from Benny Goodman's orchestra and will have you "Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)!"

Benjamin Eakeley has appeared on Broadway in the revivals of She Loves Me, Cabaret, On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever, and Sweeney Todd. He made his cabaret debut in 2016 with sold-out performances of Broadway Swinger at Feinstein's/54 Below. For his work on Broadway Swinger, Cabaret Scenes likened him to a "seasoned cabaret star" and BroadwayWorld praised his "bewitching stage presence" with "decidedly sensual power and lush jazz vocals."

$35-$45 cover charge. $75 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.


Hailed as "a work of explosive power," Small Town Story explores how two families in a North Texas town deal with a community controversy over a high school production of Rent. Combining modern Broadway pop and country roots, the exhilarating songs will be performed by the acclaimed cast of American Theater Group's recent World Premiere production at SOPAC. Experience all the feels and laughs of this timely yet timeless story about the power of theatre, the generational divide, and the potential of young people to change the world.

Scott Cady is Bebe's music director, and has created all the songs' arrangements.

Join us at Feinstein's/54 Below for a compelling, darkly humorous & moving performance of Molly Rice's true-crime cabaret musical Angelmakers: Songs for Female Serial Killers. Based on the premise that everyone deserves one song, Angelmakers explores the motives and moments of nine real-life serial killers in a manner audiences have called "brutal," "thoughtful," and "surprisingly beautiful."

Prepare to experience a stirring new collection of songs in a variety of styles artfully befitting their subjects, including "Teeth" (a song for ten-year-old Mary Bell), "How the Devil Sings" (dedicated to Pentecostal Velma Barfield), "Michigan" (a ballad for Aileen Wuornos), and "I'm Sorry, Everybody" (for the 19th-century nurse Jane Toppan). Featuring vocalist Gelsey Bell with Viva DeConcini on guitar and background vocals, this concert-play is produced and directed by Rusty Thelin of Real/Time Interventions, with lyrics and music by Molly Rice (Futurity: A Musical By the Lisps, Canary, The Saints Tour).

Starring: Gelsey Bell (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812; Ghost Quartet; Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage), and Viva DeConcini (Guitarist, Songwriter, on tour with Taylor Mac in the 24-Decade History of Popular Music)

Jillian Louis, AUGUST 17 AT 9:30PM

From producer/director Scott Siegel:

You don't know Jillian Louis, but you should. Seriously, you really should. There are a rare number of performers with the gift to make you laugh and cry (at the same time). And like the most memorable of musical theater stars, she does not fit a category; she transcends categories. Charm. Allure. And a quirky, unique talent that is off the charts. Yes, you should know Jillian Louis. And in this brand new show at Feinstein's/54 Below, all shall be revealed in dramatic fashion. And in comic style. You don't know Jillian Louis, but soon you will...

Here's what we do know about her, though: she's a multi-award winning musical theater star who made her Broadway debut in the David Hyde Pierce directed It Shoulda Been You.

Please come join us for this evening of beloved songs exploring how we may not know each other but are already connected via all the things we share: heartbreak, anger, love, humor. You Don't Know Me, except that you really do, as we're all not so different.

Jillian Louis: You Don't Know Me will be produced and directed by NYC impresario Scott Siegel, who has produced, written, and directed shows for Michael Feinstein and is, perhaps, best known as the creator/writer/director/host of Town Hall's signature series Broadway by the Year. He happily continues his long association with the great Jillian Louis.
