In lieu of its in-person programming due to the coronavirus pandemic, Feinstein's/54 Below is going digital. The venue, dubbed "Broadway's living room," now heads to patrons' living rooms with its #54BelowatHome series.
The initiative kicked off March 25 with a filmed performance of Be More Chill Tony nominee Joe Iconis and George Salazar's concert Two Player Game. Later offerings, each one-time-only events, include other videos from the Feinstein's/54 Below archives (streamed on YouTube), as well as some live-from-their-home sets on Facebook by artists whose scheduled cabarets had been put on hold due to the shutdown.
The lineup has previously included Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker, the 2018 Legally Blonde: The Search for Elle Woods cast reunion concert, Emily Skinner and Alice Ripley, Liz and Ann Hampton Callaway (in their own, individual acts), and Andy Karl and Orfeh in their show Legally Bound.
