A concert version of Bright Lights, Big City — the musical based on the Jay McInerney novel of the same name — is presented at 54 Below June 16 at 7 PM and 9:30 PM.

Michael Greif, who directed the original Off-Broadway production, also directs Bright Lights, Big City in Concert. The evening includes the talents of Colin Donnell, Matt Doyle, original cast member AnnMarie Milazzo, Ben Crawford, Keala Settle, Mackenzie Mauzy, Tony winner Alice Ripley, Jennifer Damiano and Nicolette Robinson.

The concert also features an ensemble of six young performers, many of whom are making their 54 Below debuts: Michelle Cameron, Adrienne Eller, Zachary Infante, Dimitri Joseph Moïse, Lizzy Perkins and Tim Sampson.

Musical director Matt Hinkley leads a band that comprises Mike Pettry (keyboard), Craig Magnano (guitar), Steve Gilewski (bass) and Jay Mack (drums).

Paul Scott Goodman’s rock musical, according to press notes, "follows a week in the life of Jamie, a successful young writer who loses himself in the chaos of 1980s New York City." This is the first NYC performance of Bright Lights, Big City, which premiered at New York Theater Workshop in 1999, since 2002.
