AN EVENING WITH Norbert Leo Butz AND FRIENDS: A BENEFIT TO SUPPORT SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE, NOVEMBER 12 AT 7:00PM & 10PM
Two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz will headline this powerful evening of star performers to benefit The Angel Band Project, whose mission is to use the power of music to provide healing, raise awareness, and create positive social change for survivors of sexual violence.
The evening will be hosted by Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay.
Program and performers subject to change.
The Angel Band Project came about as a result of the tragic loss of Teresa Butz in 2009 to a horrible act of sexual violence. After witnessing the emotionally powerful singing at the funeral from Teresa's musically talented family and partner, Teresa's lifelong best friends were inspired to record them. Teresa's brother, Norbert Leo Butz, and Teresa's surviving partner, Jennifer Hopper, joined their efforts.
Their aim was simple: to capture the power in the music they heard to help others heal from the effects of sexual violence. The resulting benefit album not only helped them heal, but gave them the inspiration to create the country's first music therapy program designed to treat survivors of sexual violence. The organization currently funds programs in St. Louis, MO, New York, NY and Seattle, WA.
All proceeds from this event will provide life-affirming music therapy for survivors in crisis.
THIS IS A SPECIAL EVENT.

Andrea Marcovicci 70TH BIRTHDAY FAREWELL CONCERT, NOVEMBER 17 AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM
In celebration of her seventieth birthday, and after creating over forty cabaret shows, plus thirty record-breaking years of NYC appearances, Andrea Marcovicci will play her final New York solo cabaret, Crossing Time, for one night only, at Feinstein's/54 Below.
When life sends you down unexpected pathways - no matter what you may desire - it's best to embrace the adventure! Crossing Time takes us on a journey through life's many milestones. From the sadness of loss, to the joy of wedding bells and beyond, these life-altering moments motivate us to stop taking the ride for granted and, instead, cherish each twist and turn. Experience them all in song.
A tradition for Marcovicci to celebrate new songwriters alongside the Great American Songbook, the quintessential cabaret artist has added a surprise from Pasek & Paul, and a brand new title song. The classic songs, many from the musical theatre, reflect the emotional arc of life, from the tender longing of Bob Merrill's "Mira" and Jerry Herman's "Ribbons Down My Back," to the humorous wisdom of Francesca Blumenthal's "Between Men" and Lerner & Loewe's "I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore."
As Chicago Tribune critic Howard Reich noted, about Irving Berlin's gems, in his review of the show when it debuted in Chicago, "Rarely has Marcovicci sounded better. She reveled in the sorrow of "Say It Isn't So," found drama in every syllable of "What'll I Do," conveyed profound longing in "Remember" and sang in full cry in "Supper Time." Crossing Time showed Marcovicci in excellent form."
Fanciful, comical, whimsical, and bittersweet, this material, even when new to the ears, feels like coming home. Here's to the ones who dream!
Actress and singer, Golden Globe-nominee, Andrea Marcovicci, has co-starred with Tom Selleck, Danny DeVito, Woody Allen, Sir Michael Caine, and Sam Waterston, among others. She's appeared on and off-Broadway, most recently at The York Theatre starring in Coco. Andrea has created over forty nightclub acts, sold out Carnegie Hall, and appeared in concert at the White House, and with numerous orchestras.
$65-$75 cover charge. $90 VIP seating. $115 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.
Hosted by award-winning composer-lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver (35mm, Darling) and Tony Award-winning Broadway actress Lindsay Mendez (Carousel, Significant Other, Wicked), Actor Therapy is a series of masterclasses for performers looking to improve their auditions, build a better book, and expand their understanding of what it means to be an actor and song interpreter in New York today.
Featuring: Monique Abry, Torian Brackett, Devon Chandler, Domeneque Claude, Allie Donnelly, Mark Andrew Garner, Erin Herrick, Clair Rachel Howell, Dylan Kastel, Peter Klein, Miranda Luze, Tiffany McCullough, Brendan Paine, Bailey Seeker, Kristen Seggio, Gerry Vega, Donté Wilder, and Lera Zamaraeva.
