IF IT ONLY EVEN RUNS A MINUTE Comes to 54 Below, Includes Lesli Margherita, Chip Zien, & More

Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or LES MISERABLES. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story.

If It Only Even Runs A Minute is the Bistro Award-winning concert series celebrating rare songs, behind-the-scenes tales and inspiring photos from underappreciated musicals. Created and hosted by 54 Below Director of Programming Jennifer Ashley Tepper and The Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross, each concert includes performances and stories from original cast members and writers of selected featured shows, as well as new interpretations.

The 12th Edition of the concert will feature performances from Randy Blair (Adding Machine), Max Crumm (Grease, Disaster!) two-time Tony Award winner Katie Finneran (Annie, Promises, Promises, Noises Off), Hunter Foster (The Bridges of Madison County, Hands on a Hardbody), Anita Gillette (Chapter Two, Brighton Beach Memoirs), A.J. Holmes (The Book of Mormon, Team StarKid), Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (Baby, It's You!, The Drowsy Chaperone), Lesli Margherita (Matilda), Larry Owens (Fat Camp), Ben Rappaport (Picnic, "Outsourced"), Mike Rosengarten (Hard Times, Hank Williams: Lost Highway), Chip Zien (The Big Knife, Into the Woods), and more to be announced.

This edition will features stories about and songs from Borscht Capades, Chess, The Civil War, Climb High, The Gospel at Colonus, Happiness, Mr. President, Ride the Winds, Ruthless!, The Selling of the President, Up in One, Weird Romance, and more to be announced.
