Marin Mazzie, who recently displayed some psychotic tendencies to play the unstable matriarch in the Off-Broadway production of Carrie, plans to surprise audiences with her brand-new concert act, which begins Sept. 4 at Manhattan's latest nightspot, 54 Below.

The celebrated singing actress will play the intimate venue through Sept. 8. The evenings feature direction by Scott Burkell and musical direction by Joseph Thalken.

Mazzie is backed by Thalken on piano, Peter Donovan on bass, Larry Saltzman on guitar and Larry Lelli on percussion.

54 Below notes for Mazzie's new show read: "You think you know three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie from her corseted characters in Ragtime and Passion or maybe from the scene-chewing screwballs of Kiss Me, Kate and Spamalot or possibly you thought you gained a glimpse of her as the valium-induced bipolar star of Next to Normal (heaven help us if that is really her in the guise of Margaret in Carrie!). Come see and hear the real Marin Mazzie as she steps back into her formative years with an evening of fun and fantasy as we get inside the head of a Midwest girl and the music she loved."

Mazzie is a three-time Tony Award nominee for her performances in Ragtime, Passion and Kiss Me, Kate. She has also been seen on Broadway in Enron, Next to Normal, Spamalot, Man of La Mancha and Into the Woods, among others. The Tony-nominated performer will also be seen on Playbill's Broadway on the High Seas 2, a ten-day trip through Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil featuring entertainment from a host of Broadway favorites, launching Dec. 6.

Show times are Sept. 4-6 at 8:30 PM and Sept. 7-8 at 8:30 PM and 11 PM.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. There is a $45 cover charge ($35 at the bar) with a $25 food and beverage minimum. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
