Self-described “queen” of the stage Lesli Margherita, co-star of Broadway’s Matilda and Dames at Sea, has announced a return to Feinstein's/54 Below nightclub this August with a new take on the songs and stories in her nightclub show, Rule Your Kingdom.

Margherita is promising “memorable favorites with a twist, [and] new stories bound to become classics” in the show, scheduled for August 24 and 25 at 9:30 PM, and August 26 at 11 PM.

Margherita, who won an Olivier Award for her performance as Inez in the London production of Zorro the Musical, played the dance-obsessed Mrs. Wormwood for two years in the Broadway musical Matilda, and created the role of Esmeralda in the stage adaptation of the musical The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Written by Margherita, Rule Your Kingdom will be directed and produced by Lauren Bass, featuring musical direction and arrangements by Brett Ryback.

Feinstein’s/54 Below is locate at 254 W. 54th St. in Manhattan. There is a $35-$80 cover charge, plus a $25 food/drink minimum. Tickets can be ordered online at Leslimargherita.com or 54below.com, or by calling (646) 476-3551.
