T. Oliver Reid's Drop Me Off In Harlem Will Play 54 Below in February
By Michael Gioia
T. Oliver Reid, who was last seen on Broadway in Sister Act, will bring his Bistro Award-winning show Drop Me Off In Harlem to the Manhattan nightspot 54 Below on Feb. 6.
Lawrence Yurman is the musical director for the 7 PM performance of Drop Me Off In Harlem, which was seen in a Feinstein's engagement in December 2012.
Drop Me Off In Harlem, according to press notes, "is an evening of club-hopping to the music of Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and Andy Razaf…through the elegant nightclubs and working class speakeasies that made uptown gay and delightful, however dull and depressing downtown Manhattan could be. In 1934, on a Saturday night in New York City, if you were boozin' and jazzin', you were doing it in Harlem."
Reid, who also appeared in the New York City readings of Soap Dish, has also been seen on Broadway in Mary Poppins, The Wedding Singer, La Cage aux Folles, Never Gonna Dance, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Follies and Kiss Me, Kate.
54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
