Here's how 54 Below bills the evening: "Everyone's favorite newsboys (and girls) from the cast of that hit Broadway show on 41st Street gather at 54 Below to show a side of themselves you may not have seen yet. Get ready for songs, stories, dances, comedy gold and possibly even some audience participation."
Proceeds from the concerts will go towards supporting the efforts of Team Newsies in the Covenant House Sleep Out: Broadway Edition. For more information, click here.
Newsies, which took home 2012 Tony Awards for Best Choreography (Christopher Gattelli) and Best Original Score (Alan Menken and Jack Feldman), will close after over a thousand performances prior to the launch of the national tour this October.
