Until Saturday, June 16, you can catch Patti LuPone in a wonderfully warm and vibrant cabaret show at the newly opened 54 BELOW, a nightclub on 254 West 54th Street, Cellar, in the Big Apple. The star of such Broadway hits as Gypsy, Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard, Sweeney Todd, Evita, Anything Goes and, most recently, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, she belts out such numbers as “It’s Just the Gypsy in My Soul,” “Far Away Places,” “I Want to Be Around When Somebody Breaks Your Heart,” a story song about a tale of “The Black Freighter,” the light hearted “Down by the Sea” and the obscure chanson spoofing Edith Piaf “I Regret Everything.”
LuPone’s brassy rendition of “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” as Mama Rose in Gypsy almost brings down the roof of this intimate house. 54 BELOW is Broadway’s newest nightspot, with classically inspired cocktails and cuisine, featuring “amuse bouches,” petite explosions of flavor in your mouth. Call 646-476-3551 or 866-468-7619 or online at www.54Below.com for tickets and reservations. Future headliners include Andrea Martin June 20-23, Ben Vereen July 10-21 and Andrea McArdle July 23 and 30, among many others.
Heat up your summer plans for a cool visit to 54 BELOW, where intimate entertainment is definitely on the menu along with cuisine by award winning Chef Andre Marrero. “Broadway’s living room” waits you.
