JANUARY 27 PERFORMANCE ADDED BY POPULAR DEMAND!

Orfeh and Andy Karl make their return to Feinstein's/54 Below! She has a "powerhouse voice" (The New York Times). He is "a theater world heartthrob" (The New York Times). Together, Orfeh and Andy Karl have had an impressively long run as one of Broadway's best couples. Although they met while doing the Broadway production of Saturday Night Fever, their irrepressible chemistry became the stuff of legend when they co-starred in Legally Blonde, which garnered Orfeh a Tony Award nomination. Karl earned his own Tony Award nods for Rocky, On the Twentieth Century, and Groundhog Day (for which he received an Olivier Award). Fresh off their run in Pretty Woman as Kit De Luca and Edward Lewis, Broadway's power couple celebrates the release of their album with a return engagement of their hit show Legally Bound. The sexy, funny, and enormously talented duo tear through an eclectic mix of pop, rock, rhythm and blues, and show tunes that is sure to excite and delight!

NEW WRITERS AT 54! Mark Sonnenblick, JANUARY 22 AT 9:30PM

Emmy, Drama Desk, and Lucille Lortel nominated songwriter Mark Sonnenblick makes his Feinstein's/54 Below debut with a rare NYC concert-his first in five years. The Jonathan Larson Award-winning author of Midnight at The Never Get ("A knockout from start-to-finish" - BroadwayWorld, "Show of the Year" MAC Award) and the very bio you're reading right now, Mark called in a lot of favors to get some incredible performers for an evening of genre-spanning musical theater from projects realized, upcoming, and abandoned/burned. There will be laughter, there will be tears, there will be microphones and instruments-everything you'd expect at a concert you've told your date "looks interesting."

NEW WRITERS AT 54! THE MUSIC OF Billy Recce, JANUARY 23 AT 9:30PM

Barely legal NEO and MAC award winning songwriter Billy Recce (Balloon Boy, A Musical About Star Wars) is back on his bullshit with an all new songbook show that'll make audiences either go "Yaaaaasss" or say "ANOTHER cis white male musical theatre writer?" Either way, Recce's songs are tuneful, poignant, raucous, irreverent, and over the top explorations of reality TV rejects, 1950s closeted crooners, and beyond. Returning to the Feinstein's/54 Below stage for the first time since his sold out, critically acclaimed Snowflake Jamboree series, Recce's acclaimed trunk of musical theatre debauchery has been hailed as "catchy, uproarious, and well-structured...with topical acuteness remarkable in anyone, regardless of age" (Front Row Center), with Cabaret Stages writing, "If you see Recce's name appearing on a club's schedule, go."

In this, an intimate evening of story songs from upcoming projects, Recce's music will be sung by a colorful cluster of the country's most talented up-and-comers and Broadway's current stars, alongside a rocking band and the twenty-one year old, H&M suit-wearing wunderkind himself at the piano. Come hear who Broadway Radio has hailed "the most promising songwriter I've heard in a long, long, long, long time" before he gives up on the industry and goes into finance like so many of his forefathers.

Featuring: Paige Turner (So You Think You Can Drag), Maya Days (Aida, Rent), Joseph Allen (Peter Pan), Mia Pak (In The Green), Lena Skeele (Love in Hate Nation), Roger Dawley (Actor Therapy at 54), Sarah Kleist (Cleopatra), Lauren Robinson (Kiss Me, Kate)
