54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

New Writers at 54! is a summer series at Feinstein’s/54 Below showcasing exciting work by today’s hottest emerging voices. Click here to learn more about other shows in the New Writers at 54 series.

Composer/lyricist Sam Willmott returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below for a totally typical night of Viking chants, intercollegiate competitive Punjabi folk dancing, and, if we’re being real, lots of fantasy creatures.  Winner of the 2015 Kleban Prize, a 2015 Jonathan Larson Grant and the 2012 Fred Ebb Award, Sam and a dazzling cadre of performers will present songs from projects old, new, and never-heard-before-therefore-terrifying-to-share.
