Broadway personality and SiriusXM Radio “On Broadway” host Julie James will welcome Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin) at the encore of her new musical comedy at 54 Below – The Julie James Show – June 21 at 11 PM.
James – an award winning vocalist, radio personality and actor – will perform short stories, original songs and long-lost Broadway standards in the one-night only performance at nightlife venue 54 Below. James will collaborate with long-time partner Aaron Hagan on the new songs and will dish about what it's like to host the SiriusXM Radio "On Broadway" which features Broadway news and music to listeners 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
