When a talented teenage dancer loses a leg to cancer, what does he do? He keeps following his dream. Evan Ruggieroreturns to 54 Below with Volume 2 of The One Legged Song And Dance Man, a continuation of his first one man show he debuted here last spring. Volume 2 includes songs from popular Broadway musicals, and other pop/rock tunes that his grandmother will enjoy. The cast features a stellar lineup of talent including: Allison Strong (Broadway: Bye, Bye, Birdie; Mamma Mia!, Off- Broadway: Under My Skin, Debut Album: March Towards The Sun), Andrea Dotto (National Tour: Joseph and The Amazing..., NYC workshop: BANDSTAND), Nick Magliocco (Why Don't I have A Girlfriend, Happy Days The Musical), Olivia Polci (Bergen PAC, I'm So Green I Hate Myself), and singer/songwriterNatalie Ortega (PANIC! The Musical). Evan Ruggiero began dancing at the age of 5 in his hometown studio and by age 10, he was accepted into the famed New Jersey Tap Ensemble, under the direction of Ms. Deborah Mitchell. He soon graced the stages of Lincoln Center, The Shomberg Museum of Harlem and The New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, among others. Upon entering his sophomore year at Montclair State University while pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre, Evan was suddenly diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer of the right leg. Enduring nine surgeries in a six-month period in an effort to save the leg, the cancer returned more aggressively than the original diagnosis. He was faced with the ultimate decision of amputation in order to stop the cancer and save his life, as well as undergoing chemotherapy for 16 months. In spite of the physical setback, Evan held close to the dream of dancing and learned of the famed Clayton "Peg Leg" Bates, a legendary African-American entertainer who taught himself to tap dance after losing a leg in a cotton gin accident at the age of 12. Bates performed twice for the King and Queen of England and became a regular on The Ed Sullivan Show, appearing a record 58 times. Inspired by his story, Evan aspired to passing on his legacy. Within eighteen months after the amputation, and only two days after receiving his "peg-leg," Evan was tapping again. He has appeared with the St. Louis Tap Festival, LA Tap Festival, Jersey Tap Festival, Princeton Symphony Orchestra, on American Idol, has been a guest on The Ellen Show, on Telemundo's Un Nuevo Dia, and is currently in PANIC! The Musical. Band: Meg Zervoulis, Piano; Ray Carega, Percussion; Brendan Daily, Bass; Justin Hunt, Guitar, Kristina Nieskens, Vocals.

An immensely talented and utterly charming songwriting duo Jacob Yandura and Rebekah Greer Melocik are due for a moment in the spotlight. Their 54 Below debut will offer a first look at their three newest musicals: The Last Queen of Canaan, about a young girl's search for agency amidst the landscape of racial and social inequality in the 1930s; Feral, a reaction to the numbing dissatisfaction that results from our never-ending quest to become smarter, stronger, healthier, wealthier, better in all conceivable ways; and Wringer, a story about connection, told through the lens of a 10-year-old boy who forges a powerful bond with a pigeon. Presented together, these pieces offer a perfect sampling of the Yandura & Melocik brand: universal themes explored in unexpected contexts, lush and lyrical compositions that show impressive musical range (from pop to folk to gospel), and the excavation of shadows to expose a message of hopefulness and light. After just one evening with Jacob and Rebekah, you will fall in love with them and their work (and it is only a matter of time before the rest of the world follows suit.). The Songs of Yandura & Melocik will be performed by Margo Seibert(Rocky), Betsy Morgan (Found, Les Miserables), Christine Dwyer (Wicked), Mykal Kilgore (Motown), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Hairspray), Eric William Morris (The Last Goodbye), and Marja Harmon (The Book of Mormon), with additional performers to be announced.

This "musically thrilling" undie-rock, comedy-pop duo don't just strip down their musical arrangements, they literally strip down to their underwear to perform their distinctive mashups and eccentric originals for cello and ukulele, with touches of glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of under-used instruments. Award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little, Sweeney Todd, Rock of Ages) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) became YouTube sensations as The Skivvies, with living room videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs. Those clips led to live shows that The Wall Street Journal called "smart, sophisticated...ingenious," and Out Magazine, "The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al- parody and part sexy burlesque...and unusual explosion of satire and sultry." They also have a single and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors. They will be joined by special guest stars who will strip down and rock out. Expect a hilarious evening of genre-hopping pop perfection.
