Jonathan Poretz: SEX, SWAGGER & SWING - SINATRA AND DARIN IN THE CONCERT THAT NEVER WAS, MAY 14 AT 7:00PM

Following a series of sold-out engagements at Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco and at Feinstein's/54 Below, New York City native Jonathan Poretz returns!

To commemorate what would have been Bobby Darin's 83rd birthday and the 21st anniversary of the passing of Frank Sinatra, Jonathan returns to Feinstein's/54 Below with his highly acclaimed show, Sex, Swagger & Swing: Sinatra and Darin in the Concert That Never Was.

Fans of Sinatra and Darin are as faithful and diehard as they come. You're either with or against one or the other. Though the two never shared a stage, Poretz brings these two musical icons together, in concert, for the first time.

Regardless of whose camp you're in, prepare yourself for an exhilarating musical evening as Poretz and his high octane, swingin', mini-Big Band, pit Sinatra and Darin classics against each other in a musical Clash of the Titans.

Among the song battles that will be played out on the Feinstein's/54 Below stage are "I've Got You Under My Skin" vs. "Mack The Knife," "I'm Gonna Live 'Til I Die" vs. "As Long As I'm Singing," "Fly Me To The Moon" vs. "Charade," "My Way" vs. "Beyond The Sea," "Moon River" vs. "Lazy River," "The Best Is Yet To Come" vs. "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big," "New York, New York" vs. "The Curtain Falls," and many more.

Javier Colon FROM THE VOICE IS HOME, MAY 16 AT 9:30PM

There is something powerful about the feeling to return to a place of belonging. So much of our lives revolve around finding a place to call home. We keep building that home into something more and more familiar. Join Javier Colon from "The Voice" at his triumphant return to Feinstein's/54 Below for a celebration of the places we all call home. The combination of Javier's soaring voice and his resonating storytelling will create a connection with every member of the audience as this universal concept is explored through unique and compelling versions of all your Broadway favorites.

Javier Colon has a lot of heart. In fact, that heart is precisely why he captivated America as winner of the inaugural season of NBC's hit television show, "The Voice." It's why he never gave up on his dream of a career in music even in the face of numerous setbacks and what seemed like endless adversity. It's why every time he writes a song, it strikes a chord. According to Javier, "From an early age, I'd start mimicking the singers I'd hear on the radio," he recalls. "With encouragement from my mom and a few teachers, I started performing at school. After that, I wanted to be all over anything that had to do with music."

This presentation is proudly produced by Christine Donahue Brown and Renee Minahan, directed by Christy McIntosh-Newsom, and accompanied by musical director, Peter DeMarco.

Guest Performer: Arielle Jacobs

Currently starring on Broadway as Princess Jasmine in Disney's Aladdin, Arielle Jacobs, has been called "one of the greatest theater artists of her generation" with a "powerful voice" who "could sing her way to world peace... literally." Her debut solo album A Leap in the Dark - Live at Feinstein's/54 Below is a story of dreams, hope, faith, fighting for what you believe in, and taking chances.
