AT 54 BELOW, BROADWAY’S SUPPER CLUB

After spending the past year “bringing down the house” in Big Fish (Variety) and being a “glorious, full-blooded voice” in Giant at the Public Theater (Wall Street Journal), Katie Thompson sets her sights on Christmas, with a night of carols re-written, standards re-imagined, and New York’s finest, funniest voices.

As a composer, Thompson always draws a crowd of the biggest voices of Broadway and Off-Broadway. For this new batch of holiday mischief, produced by Mad Bromance (Jawbreaker) and directed by Adam Jackman (R.R.R.R.E.D.), she is joined by Rocio Del Mar Valles (Giant, Zorro) singing and drumming “The Girl Who Drums” (Lincoln Center) as well as Joel Waggoner (Southern Comfort), Ben Cameron, (Wicked, Aida) Andrew Kober (House of Cards, Hair), Nick Cordero (Rock of Ages, The Toxic Avenger), Molly Hager (Fat Camp, Cloaked), Julia Mattison (Godspell, Turn Back O Man), Erik Sisco (Broadway’s Next Sensation, Picture Perfect), Frankie James Grande (Mamma Mia!), MJ Rodriguez (Rent), Daniel Everidge (Grease, Falling), and Marty Thomas (Wicked, Xanadu),
