Four-time Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh makes her 54 Below debut Feb. 7 with a show entitled On, Off, & Now Under Broadway.
The acclaimed singing actress plays the intimate venue Feb. 7 at 7 PM and Feb. 8-9 at 8:30 PM.
"In this zany musical evening, custom fashioned for 54 Below," press notes state, "Feldshuh revisits the 1970s when she first came to Studio 54, while also inhabiting a gallery of hilarious characters, ages 8 to 80, ranging from radio host Sylvia Chronic to socialite Muffy Brooke Asthma Alsop."
Attendees can expect to hear songs by Leonard Bernstein, The Gershwins, Dar Williams and Craig Carnelia. She is joined by Broadway’s Jesse Kissel on piano.
For her work on the New York stage, which includes, among many others, Golda’s Balcony, Irena’s Vow, Yentl and Lend Me a Tenor, Feldshuh is the recipient of four Tony nominations, four Drama Desk Awards, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Obie, the Theatre World Award and the Lucille Lortel Award.
54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. There is a $35-$55 cover charge plus a $25 food/beverage minimum. For more information, visit 54Below.com.
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.
