54 BELOW will present an evening with Broadway legend LaChanze benefitting 54 Below on Sunday, September 15 at 8pm. 

Tony Award winner LaChanze makes a dazzling return to 54 Below with a joyous and thrilling show.  Armed with a gift for dramatic storytelling and a sultry vocal dexterity, LaChanze brings her powerful mezzo-soprano and commanding stage presence to Broadway's Living Room for an intimate event to benefit 54 Below.

The acclaimed performer will present an exhilarating and electrifying new concert featuring music from her celebrated four-decade career, as well as beloved Broadway classics, Great American Songbook standards, personal favorites, and more.

This one-night only benefit will feature a special dinner menu and full open bar. A limited number of premium tickets will include a meet and greet with LaChanze, and a portion of all ticket purchases is tax-deductible.

Proceeds from the benefit concert will support 54 Below's mission to preserve and expand the art of cabaret by providing a home and performance opportunities for both early-career and legendary cabaret artists.
