Following her opening run at Broadway's newest venue, 54 BELOW presents an encore week of Patti LuPone's cabaret act - FAR AWAY PLACES which will play seven additional performances from Tuesday, June 19 through Saturday, June 23. There will be a special late night performance on Thursday, June 21 at 11:00 p.m. This two-time Tony Award winner, backed by a five-piece band, has thrilled 54 BELOW audiences for the past two weeks.
The owners of 54 BELOW announced today, "Andrea Martin has had to postpone her appearance at 54 BELOW because she is ill with a stubborn bronchial infection. We look forward to rescheduling her performance at the earliest possible opportunity. Patti LuPone has graciously agreed to change her schedule so as to continue her engagement at 54 BELOW for another week until June 23rd.”
Ms. LuPone will fill the vacancy at the new nightclub offering seven additional performances on June 19 and 20 at 8:00 p.m., 21 at 11:00 p.m., 22 and 23 at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. For tickets and information, visit www.54Below.com.
