Last week the stars came out to 54 Below, the new performance venue located just beneath the legendary Studio 54, to catch Jenifer Lewis in concert with Marc Shaiman, Andrea McArdle and Lea Delaria.
According to 54 Below, "Jenifer Lewis, one of Bette Midler's most infamous Harlettes, is a force of nature whose voice is as distinctive as her take no prisoners sense of humor. And why July, you may ask? Why, it's National Jackie Washington month, of course! And if you don't understand that reference, look it up on Netflix."
Lewis, who played the role of Motormouth Maybelle in Broadway's Hairspray, has also been seen in Rock 'n Roll! The First 5,000 Years; Comin' Uptown; and Eubie! Her film and television credits include "Jackie's Back," "Strong Medicine," "What's Love Got to Do With It," "Beaches," "Cars" and "The Princess and the Frog."
