This one night only concert by the legendary Barbara Cook celebrating the publication day of her eagerly anticipated memoir Then and Now promises to be a never to be forgotten experience for Feinstein's/54 Below guests.
Broadway's favorite Golden Age ingenue will entertain with her silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence which have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. This evening marks the first time Ms. Cook has appeared in concert in New York City for over a year. She returns to trumpet the completion and publishing of her book, an accomplishment she has strived for, for many years. Critics are saying: "Barbara Cook [in her memoir] delivers a powerful, personal tale of pain and triumph, as straight forward, unflinchingly honest, and open hearted as her singing."
Abigail Rockwell, granddaughter of the American illustrator, Norman Rockwell, continues her NYC jazz debut at the Metropolitan.
Every Thursday night at 11 PM Broadway Ballyhoo: A Show Tune Hootenanny! will offer approximately four different stars each week who will sing Broadway's great songs. This ever-changing cast of stars will sing the show tunes they know and love best. Jesse Kissel is the musical director and Scott Siegel hosts!
In an evening featuring Barrett Wilbert Weed (Heathers, Bare, Found), Laura Dreyfuss (Glee, Once), and Alex Finke (Les Miserables), performers from Broadway and Off-Broadway will come together to sing music spanning the pop, rock and folk genres. Proceeds from the evening will go to Syrian refugees receiving aid from UNICEF, which is currently mobilizing the largest humanitarian operation in history.
Since the Syrian conflict began four years ago, over 12 million people, more than the entire population of New York City, have been displaced both inside the country and beyond its borders. Because bombs are still being dropped and fighting is raging with no end in sight, too many are unable to return to their homes and every day lives.
This concert is an effort to raise funds and awareness for a situation that is growing more desperate each day, and aims to serve as a reminder that the Broadway community has a special ability to bring people together to positively impact the world.

Broadway. We all know it. We all love it. Distorted Broadway asks and answers the simple question: What if your favorite Broadway shows didn't end up being quite what you expected? What if Avenue Q really turned out to be a ballet about south Brooklyn or if Jersey Boys was about the Jersey Shore? What would Oklahomo, Trannie, The Queen & I, The Book of Morons, or West Village Story be like? And what the heck does "Turn Off The Dark" mean, anyway? Find out in this truly wicked 70-minute, non-stop musical theater tribute, where everything gets twisted -- even the happy ending!

Jim Caruso's Cast Party, a popular weekly event on Monday nights, is now at Birdland!
"No one can be called a true New Yorker until they've been to the Cast Party, which is to Broadway what the Conde-Nast cafeteria is to publishing. Divas and dapper-dans insouciantly sip cocktails while watching each other sing and perform at the open-mic event during Broadway's dark night," says Next Magazine. Broadway impresario Jim Caruso hosts a combination open-mic, networking event and party in which the biggest stars on Broadway relax on their night off by performing their favorite songs in an informal setting. Performers are accompanied by Billy Stritch, pianist and musical director for Liza Minnelli and Charles Aznavour.

Dubbed the "Belle of the Blues" for her crystal pure voice and charming stage presence, she the playfulness and daring of a little girl riding a bicycle with no hands, as Lisa strides into various musical territories with wild abandonment.
As a storyteller, singer, songwriter, and actress, Lisa guides the audience on a musical journey from Blues to Jazz, performing some of her original music, as well as the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Nina Simone, and Etta James.

Oh where oh where has our little Drew gone? He's been off writing a butt-load of new musicals and he is so excited to finally share what he's been working on with you! On July 11th you can be one of the first people on the planet to hear songs from Drew Gasparini's newest projects, including a musical adaptation of The Whipping Boy that he is developing with 2016 Tony nominee Alex Brightman. We know Drew's return to Feinstein's/54 Below is overdue, but just think about how much new material and how many dirty jokes he's managed to stockpile since the last show! As always, it will be an evening of new music, great friends.
Nads is a laugh-out-loud ladies' night of fun that any fan of "guy candy" won't want to miss. Mix a little "Whose Line is it Anyway?" with a little "Magic Mike," then stir in some drink specials with a table full of your besties, and you have the recipe for a perfect girls' night out!
The men of Nads are all accomplished stars of the stage and screen, and by far the hottest men in comedy. The Runway Package will get audience members up-close and personal with the Nads as they make it all up on the spot and interact directly with the crowd.
Nads is hosted by the devilishly wicked Nicholas Sotack and his puppet Kenny, a self described ladies man who has the unfortunate disadvantage of being connected to a gay man arm!
This season, Ethan Lipton (No Place to Go, Red-Handed Otter) returns to The Public with a new adventure in bittersweet and hilariously off-kilter storytelling. With music by Vito Dieterle, Eben Levy and Ian Riggs and performed by the quartet (Ethan Lipton & His Orchestra), The Outer Space follows one married couple as they leave the noise, pollution and overpriced rents of Earth for the vast beauty and treacherous terrain of the final frontier. But can they survive the journey? Leigh Silverman (No Place to Go, Well, Violet) directs this out-of-this-world musical about the sacrifices we make for sustainable living and love. The New York Times calls Obie-winning playwright and songwriter Ethan Lipton an "expert at keeping music, jokes and personal narrative tightly knitted together into one consistent human package."
Porter Carroll, Jr of Hall & Oates and Atlantic star, along with The Tambourine Band featuring Wali Ali, Eric Perez, Danny Obadia & Kevin Hill begin their much anticipated Residency at the Metropolitan Room in Manhattan.

This "musically thrilling" undie-rock, comedy-pop duo don't just strip down their musical arrangements, they literally strip down to their underwear to perform their distinctive mashups and eccentric originals for cello and ukulele, with touches of glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of under-used instruments. Award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little, Sweeney Todd, Rock of Ages) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) became YouTube sensations as The Skivvies, with living room videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs.
A uniquely talented and gifted jazz pianist, jazz critic and writer George Simon called John Bunch, "The Fred Astaire of the piano".
