24 Aug 2014
Golden Globe winner Amanda McBroom and award-winning musical theatre veteran George Ball (Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris) will present the New York debut of their show, Some Enchanted Evening – An Evening of Love Songs for Grownups, at 54 Below Oct. 8 and 14.
Here's how their show is billed, "One Enchanted Evening takes a very, deep unflinching dive into love, marriage and commitment with humor and feeling through songs by such illustrious songwriters as Cole Porter, Jacques Brel, Kurt Weill, Stephen Sondheim and of course, McBroom herself...the couple fell in love while performing in a production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris and...have appeared together in Sweeney Todd and other shows in New York, Los Angeles, regionally and internationally."
The show will play nightlife venue 54 Below (254 W. 54th Street) Oct. 8 at 7 PM and Oct. 14 at 7:30 PM. Tickets range from $30-55, with a $25 food and beverage minimum.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
