Patti LuPone Will Celebrate New Year's Eve at 54 Below
By Adam Hetrick
Two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone will ring out the old and ring in the new on New Year's Eve with her acclaimed nightclub act Far Away Places, which will play two performances Dec. 31 at 54 Below.
A special three-course New Year's Eve dinner, including a champagne toast, will be offered for the 7 PM and 11 PM shows. Tickets for the 7 PM performance are $300, while the late-night 11 PM performance, which will countdown to 2013, will be $400. Tickets go on sale to the general public Nov. 12.
LuPone debuted her latest concert act, Far Away Places, as the opening offering of the new venue nestled just below Studio 54 in June. Broadway Records will release a live album of the nightclub act Dec. 11.
She is also set to star in the upcoming Broadway production of David Mamet's The Anarchist opposite Debra Winger, beginning Nov. 13 at the John Golden Theatre.
Far Away Places, directed by Scott Wittman and written by Jeffrey Richman, features "a little bit of Gypsy in My Soul, which has never been done in New York, and one song from Patti LuPone on Broadway, 'Come to the Supermarket in Old Peking,' and the rest is brand-new," the award-winning actress told Playbill.com. Among the new songs are "Pirate Jenny," "Traveling Light," "Black Market" and the title tune.
54 Below was designed by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty and architect Richard Lewis, lit by Tony Award winner Ken Billington with sound by Tony Award nominee Peter Hylenski. Tony Award winner Wittman serves as creative consultant, and MAC Award winner Phil Geoffrey Bond is director of programming.
54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. Tickets and additional information are available at 54Below.com.
