Join us in celebration of this dynamic group of plus-sized superstars as they bring us Big Broadway Bodies at 54 Below! Directed and produced by Alexa Hendrickson, Big Broadway Bodies is a night of music that explores every facet of each artist’s identity and challenges the entertainment industry to break the mold regarding body type. Each artist will sing songs from two “dream roles:” one that would be expected of them, and one that does not traditionally feature a plus-sized actor. Featuring MiMi Scardulla (A Beautiful Noise, Once Upon a One More Time) and other artists both familiar and new to the 54 Below stage, Big Broadway Bodies is sure to have you laughing, crying, and reconsidering your own biases. Join us for a magical night of singing and building a bigger and better future for Broadway! Music direction by Michael Meketa.
