DESCRIPTION

54 Sings Off-Broadway Musicals


Join us at 54 Below for a special evening featuring the iconic musicals that made their mark Off-Broadway over the past 30 years. Celebrate the vibrant creativity and spirit of shows like "Songs for a New World,” “Heathers”, and "Tick, Tick... Boom!” sung by some of the best up and coming voices that New York City has to offer.


Off-Broadway musicals house hidden gems of stagecraft and music that often don’t get the same recognition as the big Broadway shows that we know and love. This concert promises to feature the unsung and under-appreciated numbers of Off-Broadway shows like, “Sunday” (Tick, Tick.. Boom!), “Dogfight” (Dogfight), “Willow” (Venice), “Secret of Happiness” (Daddy Long Legs), “Heart and Music” (A New Brain), and more!


Grab your tickets and join us in celebrating the path less traveled in the world of musical theatre. Produced and directed by Kiera Matthews and Mason Margut, this is a night you won't want to miss!


Show Date: Saturday 08/31 at 9:30pm

Pay: $50/performer with the potential of an additional % of profits based on tickets sold
