Christine Dwyer, Gerald Caesar, Brian Charles Johnson And More Will Lead THE PRETTY PANTS BANDIT at 54 Below

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Christine Dwyer in The Pretty Pants Bandit on May 23rd, 2023 at 9:30pm. From housewife to hero, Marie Baker, her gang, and one infamous pair of guns took the country for a year-long ride that would make headlines. Notoriously leaving the men she robbed with their pants down, her evolution became a revolution. Set against the sparkling and scintillating back drop of 1930s Miami, The Pretty Pants Bandit will steal your inhibitions and your heart.

A story of a woman leaving an abusive marriage to pursue a vigilante quest for vengeance quickly becomes something so much more. Part heist adventure, part romantic comedy, and all excitement-The Pretty Pants Bandit is empowering, moving and deeply entertaining.

Leading the cast is Christine Dwyer. Christine appeared on Broadway and the 2015 Tony Awards as Elphaba in Wicked and as Jenna in the National Tour of Waitress, Finding Neverland (Sylvia) and RENT (Maureen). Other credits include Ragtime (Mother), Murder Ballad (Sara) Rock Of Ages (Regina), and JCS Live on NBC with John Legend, Sara Bareilles and Alice Cooper. She sings the role of The Pretty Pants Bandit herself, Marie Baker-an unlikely heroine discovering herself, as the world discovers her alias. Gerald Caesar (Broadway's A Bronx Tale, Choir Boy, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical) is Lawrence Walker, club owner and jazz singer turned reluctant criminal. The star-studded cast also includes Brian Charles Johnson (Broadway's American Idiot, Spring Awakening) Tiffany Renee Thompson (currently appearing in Little Shop of Horrors) Xavier Reyes (Nat'l Tour Kinky Boots) Jack Baugh (The Office: A Musical Parody) Carla Mongado (A Clockmaker's Daughter) and Quentin Avery Brown (Five Guys Named Moe)

With Music Direction by Matt Deitchman (Broadway's A Strange Loop, Almost Famous, Off-Broadway: Trevor the Musical) and featuring a four piece band.
