54 Below Sings "Starmites"

54 Below, 254 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019

COVER CHARGE: $35.00 - $45.00 PREMIUMS: $75.00 COVER CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL $5.00 AT THE DOOR FOOD & BEVERAGE MINIMUM: $25.00

54 Below is proud to present STARMITES: IN CONCERT, a one-of-a-kind tribute to one of the most brave, boisterous, brazen, raucous and just plain far-out theatre experiences of the 1980s. Based on the 1989 Broadway musical of the same name with music and lyrics by Barry Keating and a book by Keating and Stuart Ross, STARMITES blasts off boasting an instant earworm score packed with delectable pop gems, epic ensemble sequences, and one of the most show-stopping diva showcases of all time at its center. Like no musical before or since, STARMITES is truly in a galaxy all its own.

A wildly original and incomparably unique musical odyssey through time and space, STARMITES tells the compelling tale of a teenage girl obsessed with comic books, gifted with uncontrollable superpowers, who is transported to a colorful and imaginative fantasy world inhabited by a vast array of fiercely idiosyncratic characters fighting for power, prestige, and interplanetary control. Take a wild ride into the farthest regions of Innerspace with a score positively stuffed with thrills, shocks, surprises and unexpected delights, traversing the universe itself through the genres of rock, pop, rap, R&B, musical theatre, opera and even more. Without any doubt, STARMITES is spectacularly entertaining and unforgettably anomalous while also being way ahead of its time – its six 1989 Tony Award nominations for its Broadway production being no small achievement; not to mention its place as a mainstay of high schools and regional theaters across the country and the world.

Featuring original cast member Liz Larsen (Starmites, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) as narrator and host for the evening, along with Daniel Quadrino (Wicked), Tyce Green (LMNOP), Dan Tracy (American Idiot), Emily Padgett (Side Show, Waterfall), Cheryl Freeman (The Who’s Tommy), Jessica Waxman (Children of Eden), Carla Hargrove (Little Shop of Horrors, Hairspray), Terita Redd (Hairspray, Leap of Faith), Melissa VanPelt (Hairspray), Jessica Hendy (The Radio City Spring Spectacular, Aida), Ashley Blanchet (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Gregory Sullivan (Palin: The Musical), and Brian Charles Rooney (The Threepenny Opera, The UnCivil War). Plus, as a special guest for this once in a lifetime event, the original Diva herself, Sharon McNight.

STARMITES: IN CONCERT has musical direction by Henry Aronson. Directed by Barry Keating & Pat Cerasaro.

Turn The Beat Around: 54 Below Celebrates Studio 54

54 Below, 254 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019

54 Below is Broadway’s Super Club — and the hottest venue in town — but long before that it was home to nightlife legend. 54 Below invites you to remember the glory — and the decadence — that was STUDIO 54. In the legendary club’s heyday the guest list was a who’s who from the world of entertainment — Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Halston, Elizabeth Taylor, Mick Jagger, Diana Ross, Brooke Shields, John Travolta, Michael Jackson — and the music played kept them dancing all through the night. Come “Turn the Beat Around” as we “Celebrate, Good Times” and salute Studio 54 from its opening night to the “Last Dance.” This is one party you won’t want to miss. 54 Below is even rolling out their dance floor for the occasion!
