This month, "Broadway's nightclub" 54 Below expands its late night series. Joining Tuesday nights' popular Backstage with Susie Mosher will be three new late night events throughout the week including The Callback, Late Night at 54 Below, 54 Piano Bar, Midnight is the Real Happy Hour.
At "The Callback," on Monday nights, beginning tonight, March 18, contestants will perform for a chance to win their own cabaret show at 54 Below. Contestants will be chosen by video audition, their performances will be recorded and uploaded to 54 Below's Facebook and YouTube page, and each week, a winner will be determined by audience vote to progress to
the next round. "The Callback" contestants may also have the chance to sing in front of industry executives and Broadway celebrity guest judges as they move forward in the competition. For more information on "The Callback" rules or how to submit an audition video, please visit www.54Below.com .
Tuesday nights continue to bring us "Backstage" with Susie Mosher. Musical Director Brad Simmons keeps the house jumping from the piano, while host Susie Mosher (the love child of Joanne Worley & Paul Lynde) guides the crowd through an evening of music, mayhem and full throttle belting. Special guests from hit Broadway shows drop in to perform everything from Schwartz to Sondheim.
On Wednesdays, starting March 6, "Late Night at 54 Below" will be the place to see up-and-coming New York talent: including comedians, musicians, songwriters and improv groups. Each week will feature a different new New York artist, so visit our calendar to see what this
Wednesday has in store for you.
On Thursdays at 11 pm, starting March 7, pick a song and join our house pianist as you take your turn on the stage at "54 Piano Bar." See new Broadway talent perform on a whim, and perhaps take part in the ever-popular (and inevitable) audience sing along.
"Midnight is the Real Happy Hour" will feature $5 beers, $8 specialty cocktails and well drinks, and new late night menu items every Monday through Thursday from 11:30 PM to 12:30 a.m.
LATE NIGHT AT 54 BELOW will take place Monday through Thursday from 11p.m.-1a.m. and beyond. There will be a $20 Food and Beverage minimum for all late night events. Visit www.54Below.com to see new and exciting additions to the schedule.
