By: Nov. 30, 2018

Vocalist Rachel Ulanet (Broadway's Beauty and The Beast, Lovemusik, and King David) makes her return to Feinstein's 54 Below on Friday November 30, 9:30 pm, with her solo show, Keep Me Searching.

Reflecting on the recent shifts within our country, and the profound effect they have had on her as a woman, citizen, artist, and parent, Rachel will tell the tale of one Broadway mama's journey, revealing new connections and possibilities through timeless music - from Stevie Wonder to Kurt Weil, from Henry Mancini to Aretha Franklin to Michel Legrand. Directed by Julie Reyburn (Sondheim Unplugged, multi-MAC, Bistro, and Nightlife Award winner), the show has a terrific quartet led by music director/ arranger Matt Baker on piano (Christine Ebersole, Ann Hampton Callaway, and Judy Collins), with Curtis Nowosad on drums, Michael Blanco on bass, and featuring multi MAC and Bistro award winner Sean Harkness on guitar. Keep Me Searching will be sure to enthrall and delight, as it opens up the audience to our shared experiences during these unusual times. The show is Friday November 30 at 9:30PM at Feinstein's 54 Below, 254 West 54th Street, Cellar. Advance reservations are highly recommended.
