Tony Award winner Nikki M. James, who stars as Nabulungi in the Tony-winning hit musical The Book of Mormon, begins a two-performance engagement June 23 at 54 Below.
Presented June 23 and 24 at 9:30 PM, the concerts promise personal stories and a "mix of Broadway favorites, contemporary pop and a few surprises." MAC Award winner Amy Wolk directs the performances with musical direction by Nate Buccieri.
In addition to her Tony-winning work in The Book of Mormon, James appeared on Broadway in All Shook Up and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and also stars in the upcoming film adaptation of the Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical Lucky Stiff.
The performances feature Tim Lykins on drums and Dan Fabricatore on bass.
Tickets are priced $30-$40. There is a $25 food/beverage minimum. 54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. Tickets and additional information are available at 54Below.com.
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.
