BWW Review: Feinstein's/54 Below Celebrated the Birthday of an Icon with 54 SINGS DOL Photo BWW Review: Feinstein's/54 Below Celebrated the Birthday of an Icon with 54 SINGS DOLLY PARTON
by Chloe Rabinowitz - Jan 20, 2020

Is there a better way to celebrate the birth of one of the greatest living songwriters than with song itself? I think not. And Feinstein's/54 Below clearly felt the same last night when it brought some of Broadway's greatest voices together to celebrate the birthday of one Miss Dolly Parton. The woman who gave us 'I Will Always Love You', 'Jolene', '9 to 5' and so much more is not only one of the greatest singers, songwriters, and entertainers of all time, but one of those rare artists who has the ability to reach across barriers and touch everyone from drag queens, to Middle America, to the mass public, and bring them all together in celebration of beautiful music.
