Come share an evening of music and merriment with upstate New York’s favorite family band…that’s not really a family (or, if we’re being completely honest, from upstate NY either).

Matt Saldivar (Act One, Peter and the Starcatcher, Grease, The Wedding Singer), Adam Stein (The Lion King), Keira Naughton (The Rivals, Lucy), Rick Holmes (Spamalot, Cabaret, Peter and the Starcatcher), Evan Robertson (he hates listing credits) and Pete Simpson (Blue Man Group) play The Petersons, a musical band of misfits from the (fictional) upstate town of “Essex-on-Haugatuck.” Performing an eclectic mixture of original rock music and character-based comedy, they come prepared with an entirely new show and special guest each time. Previous guests include Oscar winner Paul Newman, Tony Award winner James Naughton, Emmy Award nominee Michael C. Hall, the uncategorizable John Cameron Mitchell and many, many more.

Described by The New York Times as, “a hipster theater mock-rock group with a devoted following,” and by Time Out New York as, “one of the funniest shows in town,” the Petersons have played sold-out shows at Joe’s Pub, Caroline’s Comedy Club, Ars Nova and the West Bank Cafe. This is their debut at 54 Below, and they’re thrilled to invite you to join the family.

Featuring a guest performance by Tony Danza, who stars in Honeymoon In Vegas, which begins performances on Broadway Nov 18th!
