Musical theatre historian, writer and producer Jennifer Ashley Tepper, who created both the If It Only Even Runs a Minute and Once Upon a Time in New York City concert series, will host the first Broadway Trivia Night Aug. 7 at 54 Below.



"I'm psyched about the event because it combines so many of my favorite things: Broadway history, theatre games, drinking, 54 Below and lots of people yelling about how many times Lenora Nemetz went on for Chita Rivera," Tepper told Playbill.com.

At Broadway Trivia Night, set to begin at 11 PM, teams can comprise one-ten people.

Tepper — who hopes Trivia Night will continue as a series at 54 Below — added that questions "are a great mixture of current and past Broadway" as well as "a great mixture of fun trivia that will challenge the 'Broadway fan' and hard trivia that will challenge the 'Broadway super-nerd'!"

Here's how 54 Below describes the evening: "Have you often found yourself at pub quizzes or trivia nights struggling to answer questions over sports and science but dominating the Broadway/TV/Film round? Are you the token-musical theatre nerd in your group of friends who can spout off the lyricist, librettist, director, and design team of every Pulitzer Prize winning musical? Do you like friendly competition, winning prizes, and drinking delicious cocktails with Broadways best? Then this is the night for you. We're bringing your favorite game to Broadway’s supper club!"

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. There is no cover and a two-drink minimum. For more information and tickets, visit 54Below.com.
