54 Below

Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for Passing the Bechdel Test: Duets for Women That Aren’t About Men — an evening of world premieres and old favorites from New York’s most exciting musical theatre composers as they embark on the impossible challenge of writing a duet for two women that isn’t about loving the same man – or about a man at all. There will be sisters. There will be lesbians. There will probably be Miranda Priestly-esque nightmare bosses, or possibly some kind of time travel. When women start discussing things other than the men in their lives, who knows what might happen?
