||Billy Anderson in #RipseyResists
Having conquered his Election Night PTSD in his hit show #IMWITHRIPSEY, nightlife fixture Billy Anderson returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with the original Jewish Japanese pop musician Danny Katz for #RIPSEYRESISTS. The dynamic duo pick up right where they left off to continue Ripsey’s own personal handmaid’s tale with fresh arrangements of pop classics along with songs you’ve likely never heard before! Featuring guest stars Andrew Boeckmann, Justin Cook, Miranda Wilson, and a special appearance by John C. Hume, this cabaret (that thinks it’s a rock concert that thinks it’s a Broadway musical) is sure to inspire your own resistance, along with many, many laughs.
||Pump Boys & Dinettes Reunion Concert
Pump Boys And Dinettes, a band as well as a show, ran for 577 performances on Broadway in 1982-83 while earning a Tony nomination for Best Musical. The original cast—Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, Jim Wann, John Foley, John Schimmel, and the late Mark Hardwick—were downtown New Yorkers with Southern musical roots who created “a singular mixture of country-pop concert and musical theatre… [the show] doesn’t merely celebrate the value of friendship and life’s simple pleasures, it embodies them” (Stephen Holden, The New York Times).
Now, for the first time since their Broadway run, the creators of this pioneering work for actor-musicians will be onstage together to play and sing their score and tell their stories. Bob Stillman will join on piano, and yes—there will be a Pump Boys raffle! It’s been 37 years – now join the original Pump Boys & Dinettes for an unforgettable reunion concert!

||Mike Wartella feat. The Skivvies and more!
Broadway’s Mike Wartella returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below for a night of rock and roll, original music, and Broadway favorites reimagined. Mike, who is a singer/songwriter at heart, will fill the evening with brand new original music straight from his new debut solo album, as well as some old Broadway favorites done with a folk/rock twist. As a Broadway veteran, Mike has been seen playing children in Tuck Everlasting, Wicked, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. His powerful, edgy voice, hardly matches his youthful type, so Mike is taking to the Feinstein’s/54 Below stage to lead you through an evening, much closer to his grown up rocker roots, that will be sure to thrill and entertain. From his folk covers of “Pure Imagination” and “She Used to be Mine,” to his high-octane covers of “Midnight Radio” and “Lover You Should’ve Come Over”, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
There will be special appearances from The Skivvies, Broadway actors Aaron Lavigne and Andrea Laxton, and the band will be composed of Mike’s childhood friends, Alex Hayes (bass), and Jake Robinson (drums).
Lisa Dellarossa makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in Celebrating Lady Legends. Back up North after residing and performing in all over Florida for 12 years, she recently starred in Bye Bye Birdie and now she brings you songs from lady crooners of yesterday and today featuring music from Judy, Liza, Barbara, Bernadette, Eydie, Connie, and more! Lisa brings back to life treasured selections that we’ve grown to love. Her range can tackle anything from a great American standard to pop opera to a Broadway smash hit. One can easily connect with Lisa, her songs, and her heart warming stories. And she rolls them all into a fabulous, memorable show.
Featured on a few selections will be Steve Potfora. Steve has been a pianist at Radio City Music Hall for the last 20 years. He has performed on Broadway, The Kennedy Center and The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and his private coaching students have appeared in 100 shows on Broadway.

||54 Sings The Beatles
John, Paul, George, and Ringo. The Fab Four. The most famous musical singing group the world has ever known. They didn’t just define a generation, they were an epoch all by themselves. Their music might have been born in the 1960s but it continues to be an essential part of our culture today. At Feinstein’s/54 Below, we will celebrate their greatest hits, with today’s greatest Broadway and nightclub stars singing their iconic songs. From “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” to “All My Loving,” and from “Yesterday” to “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” — and from “Can’t Buy Me Love,” to “Norwegian Wood,” Eleanor Rigby,” Nowhere Man,” “We Can Work It Out,” and so many more incredible top ten hits. This isn’t just nostalgia, it’s music written with elegance and beauty, and lyrics written with keen understanding, wit, and style. They were The Beatles. Hear their music live, in concert, once again. For one night only, 54 Sings The Beatles!
54 Sings The Beatles is created by New York impresario, Scott Siegel, who also created Broadway Jukebox, Broadway by the Year, Broadway Unplugged, etc. — a total of more than 300 major concert events that have been performed all over the world.
