“Unsung Carolyn Leigh unearths lost gems in career of brassy, tart-tongued lyricist.” –The New York Times

After a triumphant premiere at Lincoln Center, Unsung Carolyn Leigh, by the acclaimed UnsungMusicalsCo., comes to 54 Below. With an illustrious catalogue boasting such popular standards as “The Best is Yet to Come,” “Witchcraft,” and “Hey, Look Me Over,” legendary lyricist Carolyn Leigh spent three decades perfecting her own indelible brand of smart, sexy, sophisticated songwriting. UnsungMusicalsCo. continues its celebration of the Tony- and Grammy-nominated icon with Unsung Carolyn Leigh, Vol. 2, an all-new, jazz-infused evening that highlights the inimitable artist’s little-known works including several items written with Jule Styne for the 1976 revue Hellzapoppin’, two trunk songs from How Now, Dow Jones, and a lost musical number penned with Elmer Bernstein for the troubled tryout of I Do! I Do! Interspersed with a handful of Ms. Leigh’s early career hits, the intimate evening features rare audio clips of the lyricist and more than twenty remarkable melodies.
