HALEY SWINDAL: BACK IN BUSINESS-SEPTEMBER 20 AT 7:00 PM
Broadway powerhouse Haley Swindal once again takes the stage at Feinstein's 54 Below in her sparkling new cabaret outing, Back in Business. The evening is a joyful musical celebration to hope, love, and a return to live performance after a lengthy unanticipated hiatus.
In Back in Business, the irrepressible Swindal returns to the business she knows so well… the business of "show," displaying her dazzling versatility through ever shifting vocal styles; from belt to legit, blues to calypso, Bacharach to Bareilles. She gets to put her pleasingly brassy stamp on a repertoire equally eclectic, including "Make You Feel My Love," "Old Friend," to "I Have Dreamed," and "Let the Good Times Roll."
Alongside her at the piano, leading his trio, is her wonderfully inventive musical director Scott Cady, whom she met when performing the role of Mama Morton in the current Broadway revival of Chicago. At the helm, Haley reunites with multi-award winning cabaret director, Barry Kleinbort, who had previously steered Swindal through her highly regarded musical outing, Play to Win, at Feinstein's/54 Below.
Swindal's various cabaret appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below have always played to sold out crowds, receiving rave reviews in the process, with BroadwayWorld's Stephen Mosher stating that Haley "embodies perfectly, the spirit and era of Ed Sullivan, the Las Vegas Acts of Ann-Margret, Marlene Dietrich, and Raquel Welch, and the variety shows of Julie Andrews and Judy Garland."
In Back in Business, Haley Swindal makes her return to the business in which she was born to star. A not-to-be-missed evening of quintessential cabaret.
$55 cover charge. $90 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.

To no one's surprise, the guy who brought you We Are The Tigers andCarrie 2: The Rage (An Unauthorized Musical Parody) is back with a brand-new evening of murder musical magic! Joined by music director Patrick Sulken, book writer Edward Precht, and an award-worthy cast, Preston is thrilled to debut all-new music from his latest project Amy Adams Wins An Oscar, a harrowing fantasia of love, loss, and the lengths a certain red-head will go to sabotage Isla Fisher's career. Sonically somewhere between Hello, Dolly! and Heathers, this skewed love letter to Hollywood pulls dozens of familiar faces - from Amy to Meryl to Saoirse to Glenn - into the Academy Awards race of a lifetime, where the stakes are high and no one is safe (except, of course, the audience, thanks to the incredible COVID-19 safety precautions taken by Feinstein's/54 Below!). See you on Sept. 21st when we finally answer that age-old question: "Who lives, who dies, who wins an Oscar?"
Featuring Preston Max Allen and special guests Courtney Basset, Lauren Nicole Chapman, Leana Concepcion, Madsie Flynn, Keri René Fuller, Cameron Anika Hill, Thea Lammers, Emily Olcott, and Mason Alexander Park.

There'll be deep cuts, pesky earworms, new songs from new shows, less new songs from less new shows, songs from cool TV stuff and podcasts, and a partridge in a pear tree.
In addition to the aforementioned collaborations with comedian John Mulaney, Eli is also co-writer of the musicals Found, Volleygirls, Skippyjon Jones and The Last Song of Eddie Scourge. You can listen to Bit Parade, the musical video game podcast he co-hosts with longtime friend and collaborator Mike Pettry, on your favorite podcatcher. Eli has written music for "Sesame Street" for over a decade, as well as "Animaniacs", "Difficult People" and the theme song for "Clifford the Big Red Dog" (no, not that one, the new one). He's the founding music director of Story Pirates and once pretended to play drums on "30 Rock." He thinks you are nice.
Featuring Eli Bolin and special guests PJ Adzima, Ashley Blanchet, Alex Brightman, Max Crumm, Richard Kind, Orville Mendoza, Larry Owens, Chrissy Pardo, Paula Pell, Shereen Pimentel, Allison Posner, Presley Ryan, Heath Saunders, Jed Resnick, and Natalie Walker.

BONNIE MILLIGAN & NATALIE WALKER CELEBRATE FIFTY YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP-SEPTEMBER 25 AT 9:45 PM
Bonnie Milliganand Natalie Walker performed their first duo show Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker Were Always Supposed To Do A Show On September 6th And Have Been Planning It For Months at Feinstein's/54 Below on September 6, 2019. BroadwayWorld said they were "two glorious belters who would likely benefit from a nice long session in group therapy" and "twins from a different mother (if one of the mothers was say, Shelley Duvall circa 1976 and the other Kathleen Turner circa 2004) [who] have that rare and unlikely stage magic together that brings to mind electric duos like Judy and Barbra / Julie and Carol / The Captain and Tennille."
The world has changed so much in the decades that have passed since then*, but Milligan and Walker are ready to bravely rejoin it. On September 25 & October 11, 2021, the duo will be coaxed out of their retirement homes and back to their old stomping ground, like the end of A League of Their Own but with less sports and more singing which I guess is just Follies. Join the women as they take their calcium supplements and subsequently the stage to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of their historic partnership. The set list will run the gamut from things you would want them to sing to things you don't know you want them to sing but do actually want them to sing. Cheer loudly to drown out the sound of their creaking bones.
*We dedicate this show to the loving memory of our cherished friend Characters Bar and Grill
$55 cover charge. $90-$95 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.
