This month, Tony winners and nominees litter the board with cabaret and concert appearances. Many Playbill Travel performers, including Charles Busch and upcoming guest Michael Feinstein, will play at the Midtown venue Feinstein’s/54 Below, while others venture downtown and to the east side for their solo shows. Here are the highlights for what’s on tap this October:
