Katie Rose Clarke, who was recently seen as Glinda in Broadway's Wicked, premieres her new solo concert, Back On the Ground, Nov. 13 at 54 Below. In celebration of her solo concert, the Texas native goes "Back to Her Roots" as part of this week's Playbill Playlist

Here's how her 9:30 PM concert is billed: "After sailing in a bubble on Broadway and all across the country, Katie Rose Clarke is finally putting her feet back on the ground. Katie comes to 54 Below straight after starring on Broadway as Glinda in Wicked. Her Broadway debut came at a young age, playing Clara in Light In The Piazza and since then she has gone on to develop her own voice, style and poise. Now it's time to go back to her roots, let her hair down and sing the songs that inspired this young Texan beauty. She is hanging up her musical theater hat for the night to sing some rock and roll, acoustic pop, folk classics and original pieces."

The singer-actress, who explores folk, country, bluegrass and original pieces in her 54 Below concert, picks songs from her childhood that have inspired her sound and tells us why they made the list. 

Clarke has also been seen on Broadway as Clara Johnson in The Light in the Piazza.

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