Three-time Tony nominee Marin Mazzie will step in for Linda Eder, who is suffering from the flu, at the Manhattan nightspot 54 Below Jan. 22-26.

Eder has rescheduled her engagement for April 10-13.

Mazzie returns in an encore engagement of her acclaimed show that she premiered at 54 Below in September. The autobiographical program features such tunes as "Midnight at the Oasis," "Weekend in New England," "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," among others.

The evenings feature direction by Scott Burkell and musical direction by Joseph Thalken.



Mazzie is backed by Thalken on piano, Peter Donovan on bass, Larry Saltzman on guitar and Larry Lelli on percussion.

54 Below notes for Mazzie's new show read: "You think you know three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie from her corseted characters in Ragtime and Passion or maybe from the scene-chewing screwballs of Kiss Me, Kate and Spamalot or possibly you thought you gained a glimpse of her as the valium-induced bipolar star of Next to Normal (heaven help us if that is really her in the guise of Margaret in Carrie!). Come see and hear the real Marin Mazzie as she steps back into her formative years with an evening of fun and fantasy as we get inside the head of a Midwest girl and the music she loved."

Mazzie is a three-time Tony Award nominee for her performances in Ragtime, Passion and Kiss Me, Kate. She has also been seen on Broadway in Enron, Next to Normal, Spamalot, Man of La Mancha and Into the Woods, among others.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street.  For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
