Laura Benanti, Lilla Crawford, Tovah Feldshuh and More Set for December Installment of Don't Quit Your Night Job
13 Dec 2013
Tony Award winner Laura Benanti (Gypsy, NBC's "The Sound of Music Live!"), Jenn Colella (Chaplin, If/Then), Lilla Crawford (Annie, "Into the Woods") and four-time Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh are among the artists who will perform in the Dec. 19 installment of Don't Quit Your Night Job, the popular variety show series of comedy, music and offbeat performances, at 54 Below.
The series, which has returned to New York City for a three-month engagement, offers 11:30 PM shows Dec. 19 and Jan. 16, 2014. The first show was held Nov. 21.
Sean McDaniel is featured on drums, and Rachel Maier stage manages.
Proceeds from the shows — presented with Shoshana Feinstein — benefit Open Doors, TDF's theatre arts mentoring program for high school students.
Don't Quit Your Night Job began in 2006 at Joe's Pub. The one-off benefit grew into a ten-month, sold-out run, and a commercial Off-Broadway production followed in 2007. Subsequently, Don't Quit Your Night Job has played the Zipper Factory, The Julia Miles Theater and (le) Poisson Rouge.
54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $50 for premium seating plus a meet and greet with the cast. For tickets, visit 54Below.com. For more information, visit DontQuitNYC.com.
