Tony Yazbeck, who will star as Gabey in the upcoming Broadway revival of On the Town, will make his solo 54 Below concert debut this August with The Floor Above Me. In anticipation of his concerts, the singing actor picks his favorite show-tune classics as part of this week's Playbill Playlist.

Yazbeck will offer concerts, which include Broadway classics and more, Aug. 11 at 9:30 PM, Aug. 14 at 9:30 PM and Aug. 19 at 7 PM.

Here's how 54 Below describes the evening: "In this not-to-be-missed evening, with tunes spanning from MGM to Joni Mitchell, Tony will weave tales from his first Broadway gig at age 11 (as a Newsboy in Tyne Daly's Gypsy) to his return to Gypsy as Tulsa in the Patti LuPone revival, as well as share anecdotes from his professional and personal journey that has established him as a stalwart New York song and dance man."

He will be joined by actor-dancer Curtis Holbrook (If/Then, West Side Story, Xanadu) and tap dancer Melinda Sullivan ("So You Think You Can Dance," "Glee") at The Floor Above Me.

Yazbeck has been seen on Broadway in the 1989 and 2008 Broadway revivals of Gypsy, Chicago, Oklahoma!, Never Gonna Dance, A Chorus Line and Irving Berlin's White Christmas.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
