54 Below Broadway Nightclub

John Lee Beatty

Want to see your favorite Broadway stars and Tony Award winners up close and personal? Then get ready for showtune-filled nights at 54 Below.

A new Broadway nightclub, 54 Below is located near Times Square, just one floor below discotheque-turned-Broadway-theatre, Studio 54 -- hence the name. A handful of Broadway stars that will play here include Patti LuPone, June 5-16, Brian d'Arcy James June 26-30, Ben Vereen July 10-21, Megan Hilty July 24-28, and Julia Murney September 10 and 16.

54 Below will feature up to three shows per night, accommodating up to 144 people in the main dining room, with tables no more than 28 feet from the stage. According to the owners:

"54 Below is destined to become Broadway's living room; a home away from home for Broadway professionals and audiences that combines grace and style in an intimate environment."

The design team includes Tony Award winner for Scenic Design John Lee Beatty, architect Richard Lewis, Tony winner for Lighting Ken Billington, and Tony nominee for Sound Peter Hylenski. Scott Wittman, Tony Award winning lyricist and "Smash" scribe, will serve as creative consultant.

54 Below will feature up to three shows nightly and will have a cover charge ranging from $30 to $70. This is much cheaper than a Broadway ticket and you'll be closer to your favorite Broadway star than ever before.
