Two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone returns to 54 Below Dec. 31 with her acclaimed nightclub act Far Away Places for two special New Year's Eve performances.

A special three-course New Year's Eve dinner, including a champagne toast, is offered for the 7 PM and 11 PM shows. Tickets for the 7 PM performance are $300, while the late-night 11 PM performance, which counts down to 2013, are $400. Tickets are still available.

LuPone (Gypsy, Evita, The Anarchist) debuted her latest concert act, Far Away Places, as the opening offering of the new venue nestled just below Studio 54 in June. Broadway Records will release a live album of the nightclub act Jan. 15, 2013. Click here to read the track list.

Far Away Places, directed by Scott Wittman and written by Jeffrey Richman, features "a little bit of Gypsy in My Soul, which has never been done in New York, and one song from Patti LuPone on Broadway, 'Come to the Supermarket in Old Peking,' and the rest is brand-new," the award-winning actress told Playbill.com. Among the new songs are "Pirate Jenny," "Traveling Light," "Black Market" and the title tune.

LuPone is also among headliners on the 2013 Playbill Broadway On the High Seas Cruise in summer 2013.

54 Below was designed by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty and architect Richard Lewis, lit by Tony Award winner Ken Billington with sound by Tony Award nominee Peter Hylenski. Tony Award winner Wittman serves as creative consultant, and MAC Award winner Phil Geoffrey Bond is director of programming.

54 Below is located at 254 W. 54th Street. Tickets and additional information are available at 54Below.com.
