FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW - Broadway's Supper Club - just presented the return of BENJAMIN EAKELEY and his acclaimed solo concert debut, 'BROADWAY SWINGER,' on last night, May 9. When the show premiered to a sold-out house in January, Eakeley was praised for his 'bewitching stage presence' with 'decidedly sensual power and lush jazz vocals' by BroadwayWorld.com. Currently appearing on Broadway in She Loves Me, Eakeley and his four-piece jazz band reinterpret classic songs from the 1960s in a nightclub act that chronicles the American stage's evolution from conservative to carefree. 'BROADWAY SWINGER,' co-written byTim Murray (50 Shades: The Musical), is a groovy romp through the decade that gave us Oliver!, Cabaret, Hair and Promises, Promises. True to its name, this swingin' show examines shifting attitudes toward relationships and sex as it explores life, love and everything in between.

Last week, Broadway veteran Benjamin Eakeley delighted audiences with his charming solo cabaret Broadway Swinger at Feinstein's/54 Below. The 60s themed show featured a book by Tim Murray and Eakeley, which was filled with interesting factoids about the decade. It was also masterfully directed by JV Mercanti. Through the songs of Broadway and with a gorgeous vocal instrument, Eakeley charted how musical theater, much like the rest of America, transitioned from the saccharine sweet ideals of the 50s to the uninhibited and libidinous vibes of the sexual revolution.
