Cabaret & Concert News   Elizabeth Stanley, Jelani Remy, More Perform Live in Virtual Edition of I Wish...The Roles That Could Have Been May 22
 
Feinstein's/54 Below moves its concert series online with a slew of Broadway stars.

Broadway favorites Elizabeth Stanley, Jelani Remy, Drew Gehling, and more are set for a live virtual edition of Feinstein’s 54/Below’s I Wish...The Roles That Could Have Been May 22 at 6:30 PM ET.

The concert series has become a staple act at the NYC venue, as stars get the chance to sing numbers by characters they wouldn’t normally be cast for, because of vocal range, gender, or other traits. Now, the concert takes on a quarantine vibe with performers singing at home.

Check out the performance above or watch on 54 Below's YouTube.

Joining Stanley (Jagged Little Pill), Remy (Ain’t Too Proud), and Gehling (Waitress), are Nicholas Barasch (She Loves Me), Robyn Hurder (Moulin Rouge!), Samantha Massell (Fiddler on the Roof), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom), Julia Murney (Wicked), Kirsten Scott (Rock of Ages Off-Broadway), and Matthew Scott (An American In Paris), and Nik Walker (Ain't Too Proud). The performance is hosted and conceived by Alexandra Silber, with musical direction by Ben Caplan and Jen Sandler as producer.
