54 SINGS BROADWAY'S GREATEST HITS!, DECEMBER 2 AT 9:30PM:
If you skip through cast albums just to hear the very best songs in each show, this is the nightclub concert event for you.

But at Feinstein's/54 Below, you will hear the greatest Broadway songs of all time performed by today's greatest stars, singing them straight up, the way you want to hear them. Produced, directed and hosted by Scott Siegel.
54 CONCERT LAB, DECEMBER 2 AT 11:30PM:
54 Concert Lab is a program dedicated to supporting emerging artists with bright and innovative concert ideas to be experienced at Feinstein's/54 Below. Artists hand picked by Feinstein's/54 Below develop new solo concerts bit by bit and draft by draft, culminating in a 20-25 minute piece performed in a showcase for Feinstein's/54 Below staff and other industry panelists.
Ten years ago, a gem of a musical comedy opened in the West Village and was instantly hailed as "terrific, refreshing fun!" by The New York Times. That musical was called I Love You Because by Joshua Salzman and Ryan Cunninham. It has gone on to be produced over one hundred times around the world and translated into five languages. And now, the original cast is reuniting for a one-night-only concert performance. Donny Most & FRIENDS: SWINGING DOWN THE CHIMNEY TONIGHT, DECEMBER 5 AT 7PM:
Donny Most sings songs from his about-to-be -released Christmas EP, as guest artists join him for extra Christmas cheer. With his 8-piece band, he also will be previewing songs from his other upcoming CD, Mostly Swinging. Donny Most is probably most recognizable from his lovable role as the character, "Ralph Malph" in the decade long TV hit series, Happy Days. Some people may have have caught him in his recurring roles on Glee, or his starring roles in several indie films.
