Every duo cabaret promises to be something different, but Swing Lessons really is - thanks to the glamour, sass, and class of the incomparable Melissa Errico and the irrepressible charm of Billy Stritch. Melissa comes from a Broadway background, Billy is a master of jazz. Together, they engage in a 'teach me tonight' tango, with Billy bringing the swing to Melissa and Melissa lifting up the sublime in Billy, each challenging the other to a new high in musicianship. Still aloft from their debut together as a duo with their brand-new lively holiday show last winter, this dazzling friendship takes them both to new sides of their talents and passion for music.

Singing from the American Songbook (with a touch of Legrand, and a soupcon of Sondheim), and using the inimitable storyteller style, that has made her a favorite among The New York Times contributors, Melissa will spin a few tales throughout the evening. She'll even tell why she loves that man Billy so much, how they both fell in love with music, and how these classic songs continue to unite us all.

What's more summer than a swing, either on a front porch or in an evening's music? This midsummer's dream of a concert promises to bring rocking joy to the entire family as we embrace the beauty and mischief of summer.

Ben Jones returns to 54 Below with a funny, moving and deeply personal evening of classic standards, soaring showstoppers and modern hits, punctuated with raucous, side-splitting and devastatingly honest stories from his own love life. Serenading audiences with his "extraordinary voice" (Night Life Exchange), Jones appears alongside a trio led by his music director and collaborator, the legendary Ron Abel.

In this hilarious followup to his "Jaw-Dropping" (BroadwayWorld) first show, Love Songs, Ben confronts relationships, breakups, sex and infidelity head-on with his original "puckish sense of humor" and "tongue-in-cheek mixture of comedy and sex" (BroadwayWorld).

Featuring songs by Joni Mitchell, Harold Arlen, John Mayer, Bruno Mars, Peter Allen, Bo Burnham, Stephen Sondheim, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, this show is sure to be an evening of "musical talent, humorous storytelling, authentic personality, and energetic positivity" (BroadwayWorld) that you won't want to miss!

ANDREW Zachary Cohen: DON'T ASK THE LADY- AUGUST 26 AT 9:30 PM

"Having Andy usher on the balcony is like putting the Mona Lisa in a warehouse." - James McKenna, New Amsterdam Theatre House Manager

After descending from the balcony to arrive on center stage for his cabaret debut this past March, Andrew Zachary Cohen returns by popular demand to 54 Below with an encore engagement of Don't Ask the Lady. After circling the corridors of Circle in the Square and waiting in the wings at the St. James as a Broadway PA, Andrew found his calling in a most unexpected revelation: he's a leading lady. Putting his stamp on some of the theatre's most famous female roles and many lesser-known gems, Andrew explores his journey from suburbia to NYC through his earliest influences that created his deep love (or is it unhealthy obsession?) for the musical theatre. Rediscover the power of Broadway's most stirring women as Andrew journeys from Jule Styne to Billy Finn, from Stephen Schwartz to Stephen Sondheim, from Cy Coleman to Maury Yeston, and more.

Directed by two-time MAC winner Billy Recce.

Music Directed by MAC-nominee Steven Silverstein.

SIREN: THE MUSIC OF DILLON FELDMAN - AUGUST 29 AT 9:30 PM

Join us for a new musical in concert: Siren. This full-length musical follows a small community of Sirens, pushed to the brink of extinction by an expanding settlement of humans. Up against a wall, they take their fate into their own hands by recruiting a young human with a dark past and a grudge. Dillon Feldman (composer/writer) weaves a haunting, modern soundscape through the lens of magical realism. The show explores family-the ones we create and the ones we're thrust into-as well as the origins of conflict and mythology.

Siren is a new musical produced by Danny Marin of Con Limón Productions and is in development with the support of The Shubert Organization's Artistic Circle programming.
