Address: 254 W. 54th St.
Description: The New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) comes to 54 Below when we proudly present the winner of 2012's "Next Broadway Sensation," Alexis Fishman, in a special one night only concert. An Australian native and award-winning musical actress, Alexis took the competition by storm when she walked away as the winner of this highly competitive program, which has become not only a highlight of the festival, but a New York musical theatre tradition amongst those in the know. Look for her to perform everything from tunes made famous by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Antonio Carolos Jobim, to compositions by some of musical theatre's newest and most dynamic young composers - and maybe some fun with the ukulele. Joining her will be Grand Finalist Max Chernin, a NYMF alumnus who will present a set of jazz standards and Broadway gems.
Venue Description: Evoking the ambience of a 1920s & '30s speakeasy, 54 Below provides an unforgettable New York nightlife experience, combining performances by Broadway's best with innovative New American cuisine in an elegant setting. Newsday calls 54 Below "infectious. A hip hangout for Broadway babies and the fans who love them with food that is sophisticated and understated." Open Mon.-Sat. from 5:30pm; Sun. from noon.
