Photo Coverage: David Yazbek Brings His Music To Feinstein's/54 Below

You recently saw the television camera focus on David Yazbek seated in the audience at the Tony Awards and last night if you were at Feinstein's/54 Below you saw him seated on the piano bench with his killer band and special guest Etai Benson in a thrilling performance by the composer himself.

For this special rare event at Feinstein's/54 Below some of the theatre's most creative and influential folks were in attendance. Just a few spotted in our immediate vicinity were: Thomas Schumacher,President of The Disney Theatrical Group, Orin Wolf, Tony Award Producer The Band's Visit, Frances Ruffelle, Tony Award Winner Les Miserables, Nina Hennessy, Catherine Adler, Tony Award Winner & Co-Producer Tootsie, Jamie deRoy, Tony Award Winner & Co-Producer The Band's Visit & Tootsie, Eda Sorokoff, Barrington Stage Co., Christine Pedi, Sirius Radio, Ben Famiglietti, VP Creative Development The Walt Disney Co.

David Yazbek returned to Feinstein's/54 Below with special guest Etaii Benson, known for portraying Papi in the original Broadway cast of The Band's Visit. It was a rare opportunity to see one of the theater's most innovative composers do what he's actually best at-thrilling a live audience. David performed songs from his albums and show-old, new and upcoming.

What an exciting evening celebrating the incredible body of work of the Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning composer/lyricist of The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women On The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Band's Visit, Boardwalk Empire, and the haunting "Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego Theme".
