Jill Eikenberry and More Original Stars Set for ONWARD VICTORIA at Feinstein's/54 Below

As previously announced, a one-night-only concert of the short-lived musical ONWARD VICTORIA will be presented at Feinstein's/54 Below on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00pm. The 1980 musical chronicles the life of the first female candidate for President of the United States, Victoria Woodhull. The show's original star, Jill Eikenberry, will narrate the evening and join composer Keith Herrmann (Romance/Romance) for a song from the show.

ONWARD VICTORIA opened on Broadway on December 14th, 1980. Despite a fascinating cast of characters including Cornelius Vanderbilt, Susan B. Anthony, Henry Ward Beecher, Charlie Delmonico and more, along with Herrmann's lush and sweeping score, it closed on that very same night. Now, audiences at Feinstein's/54 Below will get another chance to discover the music of Tony Award-nominee Keith Herrmann.

The July 19th, 7:00pm concert is produced and directed by Steven Carl McCasland, with musical direction by James Horan. A starry cast, including members of the original 1980 company, will take to the Feinstein's/54 Below stage to revive this forgotten musical.

Jill Eikenberry joins previously announced original cast members Bethe Austin (Whoopee!, Raggedy Ann) and Lenny Wolpe (Bullets Over Broadway, Wicked, The Drowsy Chaperone). Also joining them are original cast members Lora Martens and Gordon Stanley. All five return to roles they created 36 years ago. They are joined by Branch Fields (Rodgers + Hammerstein's South Pacific), Kimberly Faye Greenberg (Fabulous Fanny, Danny and Sylvia) and Jay Malsky (Elaine Stritch: Still Here). Also featured in the evening are Emily Austin, Kristen Gehling (Little Wars), Sabina Petra, Kelly Reader, Paul Thomas Ryan (What Was Lost), Vanessa Spica and Daniel Walstad.

Tickets begin at $30 and are available now at 54below.com/events/onward-victoria-concert. Doors open at 5:15PM.
