Bryan Batt brings his acclaimed cabaret Batt on a Hot Tin Roof, a musical evening that takes audiences along with the performer on his journey from New Orleans to Broadway and Hollywood, to 54 Below for two performances beginning June 15.

Directed by Dann Fink and featuring musical direction of Michael Lavine, Batt on a Hot Tin Roof plays the plush nightlife venue June 15 at 8:30 PM and June 16 at 7 PM.

Audiences can expect theatre songs by Cole Porter, Kander and Ebb, Jerry Herman and Maury Yeston, as well as pop songs from Billy Joel and the work of new composers including Peter Mills – all showcased with a comic twist.

"Don't let the title fool you. I never appear on stage in pajamas, [with] a crutch, holding a tumbler of whiskey!" Batt told Playbill.com.



Batt has won two Screen Actor Guild Awards for his portrayal of Salvatore Romano in the hit series “Mad Men." Among his nine Broadway appearances are Sunset Boulevard, Saturday Night Fever, The Scarlet Pimpernel and La Cage aux Folles.
