54 Below

Monday, June 5, 2012 was the night 54 Below opened its iconic red door for the first time and on Sunday, June 5, 2022 (and again on June 9, 2022) we will celebrate that night, 10 years ago, by focusing on the future. On these nights we’ll be presenting the current outstanding and astonishing generation of performers and composers who’ll be taking the next 10 years of theater music by storm. We invite those of you who’ve been present since the beginning and those who have recently discovered Broadway’s living room to celebrate our tradition and our future in an evening to remember.
