Ariana DeBose, a cast member in Broadway's Pippin, returns to 54 Below Aug. 15 with her original solo show Typed Out

The evening, which begins at 11 PM, features music direction by Benjamin Rauhala and arrangements by Kurt Crowley.

"At its core," DeBose explained, "Typed Out is about breaking boundaries, challenging type, labels and changing the game (sprinkled with laughter)..." 

In an intimate cabaret setting, according to 54 Below, "Ariana (Bring It On, Motown, Pippin) defies limitations of gender, age and race in Typed Out. In collaboration with Ben Rauhala (music direction), Kurt Crowley (arrangements), and two-time Tony nominee Terrence Mann (creative consultant), Ariana investigates what it is to be ethnically ambiguous in a world that thrives on labels. Audiences can expect a variety of mash-ups, medleys and more!"

In anticipation of the concert, DeBose and musical director Rauhala picked performances that defy "type" as part of Playbill.com's Playbill Playlist



DeBose, who was a contestant on the reality television series "So You Think You Can Dance?," was also seen on Broadway as Nautica in Bring It On: The Musical and Mary Wilson in Motown.
