Two-Time Tony Award-Winner Helen Gallagher to Narrate 70, GIRLS, 70 Concert at Feinstein's/54 Below
Two-time Tony Award winner Helen Gallagher has joined the cast of the previously announced 70, Girls, 70 concert at Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club. Ms. Gallagher, who will serve as the evening's narrator, joins a starry cast of Broadway veterans in the 1971 Kander and Ebb-tuner, set for April 17th, 2017 at 7:00pm and 9:30pm. A portion of the evening's proceeds will benefit The Lillian Booth Actor's Home.
Some "old folks sit around by the television set with a comforter petulant as they can get..." But in 70, Girls, 70, they live a life of adventure! Beloved songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, The Visit) joined forces once again with Joe Masterhoff (Cabaret) and new comer Norman L. Martin to create a musical about those adventurous "old folk". The tuner concerns the residents of The New Sussex Arms. When these adventurous old folks discover their Upper West Side retirement home is being sold, they vow to do whatever it takes to stop the sale. Even if that means they have to steal! Based on Peter Coke's play Breath of Spring, 70, Girls, 70 shuffled its way onto Broadway in 1971. This spring, a cast of theatre veterans have all said "Yes!" and will come together to sing this delightful score.
