Great performers relive their terrible performances in the third annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project at Feinstein’s/54 Below

On Sunday, October 18th at 54 Below, join Hunter Bell ([title of show], Grinch) and Susan Blackwell ([title of show], “Side By Side by Susan Blackwell”) as they host an evening of fabulous performers sharing video of their most embarrassing moments onstage and then redeeming themselves by recreating that moment. At the end of the evening, the audience will vote on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night.

Current performers include Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham), Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, SMASH), Wesley Taylor (SMASH), Steven Pasquale (Bridges of Madison County, Bloodline), Jenn Colella (If/Then, Chaplin), Brian d’Arcy James (Something Rotten, SMASH), and more who will be announced soon. Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Finding Neverland, Big Fish) is the evening’s Music Director. “This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed. And failed miserably, in my case in particular,” says Pasquale. “But it’s also to remind us about persistence, and focus, and moving forward. And about recognizing how important it is to not take ourselves too seriously. It will be a crazy fun night.”

Let Me Try That Again: Take 3 is a benefit for The Performing Arts Project: a not-for-profit organization that provides vibrant theatrical training to a generation of young performers. Bell, Blackwell, and Pasquale are all on the faculty, alongside other Broadway, TV, and film performers. The Performing Arts Project offers dynamic and constantly evolving annual programming, the cornerstone of which is a three-week summer intensive during the month of July. Funds raised during this benefit will go directly towards scholarships and student programming costs. For more information, visit
