Jana Robbins And Haley Swindal To Bring The Songs Of Kander And Ebb Back To Feinstein's/54 Below This February

Returning after back-to-back sold out shows this past summer, Jana Robbins (Gypsy, I Love My Wife, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife) and Haley Swindal (Jekyll and Hyde, White Christmas, Sweeney Todd) will join forces again and return to Feinstein's/54 Below for two unforgettable evenings with "We Just Move On! - The Songs of Kander and Ebb." The shows are slated for Tuesday, February 5th at 7:00PM and Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00PM.

Robbins and Swindal are no strangers to the Kander and Ebb catalogue. Jana appeared in two tours of Zorba and both Jana and Haley have played 'Sally Bowles' in separate productions of Cabaret. The veteran duo met and developed their show WHILE starring together in the smash Off-Broadway show, This One's For The Girls, still running at St. Luke's Theatre.

"We are ecstatic and honored to bring our show back to Feinstein's/54 Below after two thrilling and successful shows this past summer," Robbins and Swindal said. "Kander and Ebb have written some of the strongest women in musical theater history, and we love that they are real and vulnerable. We may come from different generations, but Kander and Ebb's music has proven to be the ultimate connector as we explore themes of love, friendship, parenthood and more through their beautiful lyrics and score."

Joined by musical director Joe Goodrich, Robbins and Swindal's lineup of Kander and Ebb hits includes some of the composer/lyricist's most well-known tunes including "Maybe This Time," "How Lucky Can You Get," "Life Is," "A Quiet Thing," "All That Jazz" and more. Veterans of the New York theater scene, Robbins and Swindal tell stories of their hopes, dreams, challenges and successes - onstage and off - as they move through the extensive and highly regarded catalogue of Kander and Ebb's iconic numbers.

"We Just Move On!" will play at Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street) for two performances only. Tickets to both shows begin at $45. Both shows have a $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and more information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of the performance after 4:00PM are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
