Next Week at Feinstein's/54 Below: Desmond Child, Luann De Lesseps, Celebrating Leonard Bernstein, And More!

Next week, FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club & Private Event Destination, presents some of the brightest stars from Broadway, cabaret, jazz, and beyond. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit or call (646) 476-3551.


The toast of off-Broadway in the early 1980's, Charlotte Sweet spotlights Charlotte, a girl with one of the highest & most beautiful soprano voices in the world. Because of her father's debts, she is forced to leave her Liverpool sweetheart, Ludlow Ladd, and join Barnaby Bugaboo's Circus of Voices: a troupe of freak voices including low-voiced Katinka Bugaboo, fast-voiced Harry Host, bubble-voiced Cecily Macintosh, and Skitzy Scofield (with dual personalities & voices). These quirky characters and more will come to life once again for a one-night-only concert at Feinstein's/54 Below.

With a tuneful score by Gerald Jay Markoe (Another Time, Ludlow Ladd) sung by an all-star cast, and a witty libretto by Michael Colby (The Algonquin Kid, Tales of Tinseltown, Ludlow Ladd), Charlotte Sweet is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Charlotte Sweet - In Concert is presented by the team behind the popular Second Act Series, Steven Carl McCasland and James Horan, who brought Shelter (starring Jon Cryer), Onward Victoria, The Fix, Henry, Sweet Henry, Charlie and Algernon, 70, Girls, 70, Nick & Nora, Eating Raoul, and more to New York's hottest supper club.

Featuring Adrienne Eller (National Tour of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) as Charlotte,

Robert Cuccioli (Rothschild and Sons, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, Jekyll & Hyde) as Barnaby,

LuAnn de Lesseps, FEBRUARY 27 & MARCH 8 AT 9:30PM:

Television personality, pop singer, and author LuAnn de Lesseps-known as the Countess on "The Real Housewives of New York City"-premieres her debut nightclub act, #CountessAndFriends.

Hip as a New York minute and classically chic, de Lesseps's glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade at the center of reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style. She will be joined by an eclectic group of New York's most sought-after nightlife stars, both legendary and ascendant. #CountessAndFriends promises a glorious return to the heyday of cosmopolitan evening entertainment.

LuAnn de Lesseps has sung at Birdland, with Natalie Cole and Billy Stritch, and on an all-star bill at Town Hall with Liza Minnelli, Chita Rivera, Lucie Arnaz, and Marilyn Maye. Her three dance singles, "Chic C'est La Vie," "Girl Code," and "Money Can't Buy You Class," have charted on iTunes and remain consistent favorite club anthems. Musical direction and arrangements by Billy Stritch. Written and directed by Ben Rimalower.

$40-$50 cover charge. $75 premium seating. $25 food and beverage minimum.
