Tamika Lawrence, who plays Elena in the new Broadway musical If/Then, will make her New York City solo concert debut July 21 at 54 Below.

The Slay with Tamika Lawrence, according to press notes, "is an evening oozing with rock/funk/soul realness. Filled with performances of not-so-typical rock/funk/soul songs, from not-so-typical artists (T.Rex, Guns and Roses, Betty Davis, Van Halen) to fit her not-so-typical voice and style, you've never seen a concert like this before. Get ready for a rock concert that will melt faces."

The 9:30 PM concert will feature musical direction by Damien Bassman and a band including Craig Magnano, Alan Stevens Hewitt and Drew Coles.

Lawrence has also been seen on Broadway in The Book of Mormon and Matilda as well as the 2011 Off-Broadway revival of Rent.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54Below.com.
