Tonight, Monday April 15th

7 pm – FEMININE RAGE: MUSICALS EDITION at 54 Below

Tickets available here.

For: Anyone looking for a fun, rage-fueled escape (getting over a breakup, anyone?)

“From cheating husbands to murderous boyfriends, these characters have been through it all and we are here to sing their songs and tell their stories. Produced by Tayla Madison and Sejal Joshi and featuring a cast of aspiring Broadway and pop performers, join us for a night of nostalgia with a hint – more like a tidal wave – of female empowerment. So either ‘Get out and Stay Out’ or ‘Bring it On,’ because feminine rage is about to take over the stage! Music direction by James Stryska.”

Alex Petrullo, singer, writer, performer and severe hopeless romantic, hosts and is joined by singer/songwriter Gracie Hyland; comedy queens Meg Chizek and Heather Colvin, and accompanied by Tina deVaron.

Tickets available here.

For: Fans of costume (1920s dress is highly encouraged) and immersive, subversive, underground cabaret

This show, presented by Death of Classical, “takes its name from the Tiergarten—“The Garden of Beasts”—a sprawling central park around which the Third Reich rose to power. The program traces a path backwards in time, exploring historic moments of societal madness through music ranging from Verdi to Kylie Minogue, Dean Martin to Max Richter, William Byrd to Brecht & Weill, with a panoply of performers that includes singers, dancers, actors, shadow puppets, and more.”

Read a conversation with director Andrew Ousley about Tiergarten.

Price: The Friday show is completely sold out. For Wednesday and Thursday, tickets are roughly $125 per person (the only remaining tickets are sold in pairs or foursomes, so you’ll need to round up some friends).

The evening will feature original interpretations of the music of rock musician, storyteller, and poet Lou Reed.”         

Price: $20 online, $25 at the door (cash only), plus a $20 food or drink minimum.

The show conveys portraits and stories of women as they navigate seasons of life, and features songs from Musical Theater, classic Hollywood, and the female singer/songwriters who influenced Flather’s own songwriting. From Jerry Herman to Joan Armatrading, Mercer & Mancini to Flaherty & Ahrens, Suzanne Vega to Donna Summer, Flather’s program will once again display Meg’s incredibly diverse range as a musician, actress, and storyteller, and her charm as a performer.”

Tickets available here.

For: Fans of Rodgers and Hammerstein, jazz and Broadway history

“Hosted by visionary curator Deborah Grace Winer, Songbook Sundays returns to Dizzy’s Club with a night all about Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, who wrote some of the most enduring musicals of all time – Oklahoma!, Carousel, The King and I, and The Sound of Music– all of which receive inventive reimagining from each new generation of Broadway creators. But few understand the depth of their commitment to addressing social issues through music, lyrics, and character development. Don’t miss this exploratory evening that features a roster of intergenerational talent: Karrin Allyson, Jenn Gambatese, and Tyreek McDole.”
