A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

“A creepy-carnival vibe. Simply put, it’s twisted and wonderful.” – Time Out New York

Join La Muerte, the boozy ruler of the underworld, and their adorably ill-made Diablito as they bicker over what worlds to weed in the coming “great reckoning” of their beloved garden. New York Innovative Theater Award nominee Christian De Gré Cárdenas returns to 54 Below with a dark and twisted, unsettling and hilarious, debaucherous retrospective of five fantastical worlds, spanning two centuries, on the verge of total blissful collapse.

Starring a macabre mix of Broadway veterans, opera stalwarts, and indie theater all-stars the evening features hilarious never before seen material along with highlights from the award winning*: Beware The ChupacabraJack of Hearts: Master of NoneAmpathy (miscreated by a non writer), Fish Food For FeelingsSappy Tales for a Broken HeartWhiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg and the gleefully morbid cabaret series A Drink With Death.

*Featuring collaborations with Joseph Reese AndersonSarah SandersElias UVA DíazSerrana GayR. Patrick AlbertyBrian Freeland, and Ariana Paganetti.

Vol V. of the critically acclaimed series “Twisted Operettas” (developed at 54 Below, The Public Theater, Yaddo Colony, SPACE on Ryder, The National Opera Center, Mind The Art Entertainment & the BMI Musical Theater workshop.)
