F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED in Concert is Coming to 54 Below in January

F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED in Concert is Coming to 54 Below in January

Prepare to be transported a hundred years in the past— a time far away, yet more strikingly similar to today than you could ever imagine.

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, will present F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and Damned in concert on January 17th, 2023, at 9:30pm. After three pandemic cancellations, the show premiered this summer at the Jeanne Rimsky Theatre to high acclaim. The Beautiful and Damned is a tale about status above happiness, obsession above love, and death above life. Prepare to be transported a hundred years in the past- a time far away, yet more strikingly similar to today than you could ever imagine. The concert is creatively spearheaded by Brooke Di Spirito.

The Beautiful and Damned features the amazing vocals of Sarah Anne Fernandez (Wicked National Tour, Elphaba u/s), returning to 54 Below after a high-regarded solo show last year. Vocalists also include members of the workshop cast: Mike Jubak Jr., Izzy Ochocki, and Beatrix Postley, who performed in the world premiere. The show is accompanied by a 7-piece orchestra, featuring Jivan Ramesh, who at just five years old became the youngest string player to perform at Carnegie Hall. The show includes several of his orchestrations for The Beautiful and Damned, others of which have been performed by the New York Philharmonic at David Geffen Hall.

Brooke Di Spirito's The Beautiful and Damned plays 54 Below (254 West 54 th Street) on January 17th, 2023. There is a $25-$60 cover charge ($29-$67.50 with fees) and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00pm are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.

MORE ABOUT BROOKE DI SPIRITO

Brooke Di Spirito is the book writer, lyricist, composer, and choreographer of The Beautiful and Damned. She is a classical ballet dancer with numerous principal credits, has twice performed at the highly-regarded Youth American Grand Prix, and received the Award for Artistry at the World Ballet Arts Competition. Brooke began adapting The Beautiful and Damned while in college, receiving numerous awards and grants towards the workshopping of the production. After graduating from Northeastern University ('21) in just three years, Brooke moved to NYC to pursue her dream of bringing the show to the big stage. She worked tirelessly to navigate the production through the COVID-19 pandemic, eventually securing summer 2022 performance dates at the Jeanne Rimsky Theatre in Port Washington - Fitzgerald's "East Egg". Marking her 54 Below debut, Brooke is ecstatic to bring The Beautiful and Damned to New York City in 2023.
