Feinstein's/54 Below played host June 2 to I Wish: The Roles That Could Have Been, a concert event conceived by Alexandra Silber. The one-night-only concert gave multiple Broadway performers the chance to belt out songs from their dream roles, and has since been announced as a recurring concert series at Feinstein's/54 Below.
The inaugural iteration of the concert featured performances by Alexandra Silber, Bradley Gibson, Claybourne Elder, Teal Wicks, Raymond J. Lee, Carrie St. Louis, Bobby Conte Thorton, Kevin Smith Kirkwood, James Delisco Beeks, Natalie Joy Johnson, Blair Goldberg, and Caroline Bowman. The concert was music directed by Brian J.
