Loni Ackerman, who played the title role during the original Broadway run of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita and was seen as Norma Desmond in the Gateway's production of Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard, brings her solo show to 54 Below Feb. 25.

Ackerman presents her acclaimed concert act Next to Ab-Normal at 7 PM; doors open at 5 PM. Directed by Barry Kleinbort, the evening features musical direction by Paul Greenwood.

Ackerman, according to press notes, recalls "personal stories of her unusual New York upbringing (including her childhood associations with such 'family friends' as Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon), [and revisits] songs she sang in New York hits like Starting Here, Starting Now or in one of her lengthy associations with the shows of Andrew Lloyd Webber....Ackerman's repertoire also includes charming standards, contemporary songs, even one of her own compositions which became the theme song for a 'very special' French film made during her time in Paris."

Song titles include “A Shine on Your Shoes,” “Journey to the Past,” “My Romance,” “Here I Am” and “Where Am I Going?”
