54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for a rare concert by one of the most exciting new writers in musical theatre, Zack Zadek. Named by Playbill magazine as a “Musical Theatre Songwriter You Should Know,” Zack was the recipient of the Weston New Musical Award and is a two-time MacDowell Fellow, UCross Fellow, Dramatist Guild Foundation Fellow, Orchard Project Greenhouse Member, currently under commission by Ars Nova and Arena Stage, and signed to Warner/Chappell music.

The evening will feature world premiere songs from Zack’s numerous musicals in development, as well as never before heard selections from Deathless (Goodspeed Musicals), Store Brand (The Civilians), and The Crazy Ones (developed by The 5th Ave Theatre.)

Featuring an all-star cast of Broadway and downtown performers to be announced, and a band led by Zack, this return to the Feinstein’s/54 Below stage promises more than a few sneak peaks of musicals to come and plenty of surprises. Don’t miss this one night only concert of bold new musical theatre, by one of its most daring new writers.
