Tony winner LaChanze celebrates the music recorded by Grammy-winning icon Diana Ross, who is also represented in the new Broadway musical Motown, beginning April 17 at 54 Below.

Performances of Love Hangover: LaChanze Sings Diana Ross are scheduled for April 17-18 and April 22 at 7 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM for all performances.

"One of Broadway’s most celebrated, powerhouse voices takes to the stage at 54 Below in salute of a woman who broke barriers and challenged stereotypes throughout her legendary career," according to press notes. "'Love Hangover,' 'Do You Know Where You’re Goin’ To?,' 'Endless Love' and 'Good Morning, Heartache' are just a few of the tunes forever linked with this formidable artist (who won a Tony for 1977’s An Evening with Diana Ross). And who better to celebrate this music than another formidable artist?"

LaChanze, a Tony, Emmy, Obie and Theatre World Award winner, is best known for her performances in The Color Purple, Dessa Rose and Once on This Island, among others.

There is a $30-$40 cover charge and a $25 food/beverage minimum.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue. For tickets, reservations and club information call (646) 476-3551 or visit 54below.com or ticketweb.com.
