54 CELEBRATES DAVID BOWIE, AUGUST 27 AT 7:00PM
David Bowie was a magical chameleon: the original "Space Oddity," "Ziggy Stardust," and the "Man Who Fell to Earth." He was a singer, an actor, a trend-setter, and an icon. His passing left fans of all ages in shock and mourning. His legacy, however, lives on. Through all the ch-ch'changes of life his music will continue to pave the way for "Heroes" of all ages searching for "Modern Love." Now, some of Broadway and cabaret's top talents come together to pay tribute to the man who taught them how to cope "Under Pressure"in the "Labyrinth" of life.

HEATH SAUNDERS & NATALIE WALKER, AUGUST 31 AT 9:30PM
An Ideal Husband.
The Good Wife.
From their first meeting at a gay porn studio on 40th Street in September 2015, it was fate. They bonded over a love for D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths and erotic thriller The Perfect Guy (19% on RottenTomatoes) and have been inseparable ever since. Last fall, they made their dream of playing opposite each other a reality as Jack and Sally in The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Concert here at 54, but this taste did nothing to satiate their craving for a true Lunts lifestyle. And so: this August, Heath Saunders (The Great Comet, Newton's Cradle, Jesus Christ Superstar Live on NBC) and Natalie Walker (Puffs, Search Party, mostly Twitter let's be honest) welcome you into their home* for the wedding reception they never had because they are not "technically" or "legally" or "heterosexually" bound. He'll do some of his music, she'll do some of her bits, and together they'll perform classic songs they've always wanted to sing with and to each other.
It will be The Sonny and Cher Show if both Sonny and Cher were Cher, or if Cher was Cher and Sonny was a horse. It will be high-brow and low-brow and always perfectly-arched-brow. You will not leave in the same position on the Kinsey scale. Black tie encouraged. Jumpsuits expected.
*editor's note: Natalie - you don't live here (ARTIST'S NOTE: YES I DO)
$25-$35 cover charge. $65 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.
