Hosted by Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita (Matilda), #SOBLESSED Live! will also feature performances by Keala Settle (Les Misérables), Adam Kaplan (Newsies), Megan Sikora (Like A Million Broadway Shows), Nikka Graff Lanzarone (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), Ellyn Marie Marsh (Kinky Boots) and more.

Drew Wutke will provide music direction.

Presented like a drinking game set within an audition room, #SOBLESSED Live!, according to press notes, "tells the story of the modern day working (or non-working) actor living in New York. From college and pounding the pavement, all the way to Broadway and back on Funemployment, several actors will share their unique stories from their experiences in the business, paired with songs. It's like A Chorus Line, without the serious stuff or the 1970's. There’s also literally an interactive drinking game with prizes."

Parody Internet personality Annoying Actor Friend rose to notoriety on Twitter by spoofing the social media behavior of actors. It soon spun-off into a blog and a best-selling book called "#SOBLESSED: the Annoying Actor Friend's Guide to Werking in Show Business."

54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. There is a $35-$55 cover charge plus a $20 food and beverage minimum. For more information and tickets, call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54Below.com.
