"Following her acclaimed concert Catch the Light," press notes state, "this all new show finds the stunning Michele Lee making a rare appearance in New York for three nights only. Ms. Lee’s new concert boasts an eclectic songbook, with classics she popularized as well songs from those magical composers, lyricists, and artists with whom she has worked and shared stages in every medium."

Michele Lee made her Broadway debut in Vintage '60 followed by How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Bravo Giovanni, Seesaw and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife. She was Tony-nominated for her work in Seesaw and Allergist's Wife. Lee is perhaps best known for her Emmy-nominated role on the CBS nighttime serial "Knots Landing."

There is a $35-$45 cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum. 54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets and information are available at 54Below.com.
