Wicked and Les Misérables actress Donna Vivino, who recently released "Beautiful Dreamer," will celebrate the album Jan. 23 at 9:30 PM at 54 Below. In anticipation of her concert, the actress picks "Songs for Dreamers" as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.

"Beautiful Dreamer," Vivino's debut solo album from Ghostlight Records, "weaves 13 diverse songs into a thematically-cohesive collection from Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley," according to press notes. "Jerry Vivino — the veteran New York musician and longtime member of the Conan O'Brien house band — leads the disc's all-star jazz quartet and serves as producer."

The album has arrangements by Mitchel Forman and features Jerry Vivino on flute, alto flute, tenor saxophone and clarinet; Mitchel Forman on piano and keyboards; Kevin Axt on upright bass and acoustic bass guitar; and Ray Brinker on drums and percussion.

Vivino's solo concert It's Not Easy Being Green will feature special numbers from the new recording, and she will be joined by musical director Ken Levinsky on piano and Jeff Ganz on bass.

Vivino's Broadway credits also include Saturday Night Fever, Hairspray and Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me.
