“To commemorate its 20th anniversary, Feinstein’s/54 Below is bringing back, for one night only, the influential rock musical, Bright Lights, Big City.
Bright Lights, Big City is based on the novel by Jay McInerney, and follows a week in the life of Jamie, a successful young writer who loses himself in the chaos of 1980s New York City. It was written by Paul Scott Goodman, the first solo recipient of the Jonathan Larson Foundation Award. The musical originally premiered Off-Broadway in 1999 at New York Theatre Workshop and went on to a celebrated concept recording, London production, and various concert productions.”
“This brand new musical revue, when originally launched at Feinstein’s/54 Below earlier this year, played to a sold out audience and a standing ovation. No wonder it’s returning this summer on Friday, August 10th at 9:30 PM, with the intent of not just repeating its past success, but topping it!
The creator of 11 O’Clock Numbers, New York City impresario Scott Siegel, has handpicked Drama Desk Nominee and Broadway star Farah Alvin, Three-Penny Opera star Brian Charles Rooney, and new star on the rise, Mia Gerachis, to headline in this new, critically acclaimed revue. Plus, a Special Guest Star will be added to the cast, as well.”

On January 23, Tony nominee Barbara Walsh (Company, Falsettos) and other Broadway and cabaret performers, including Mia Gerachis, will pay tribute to the Fab Four in a concert at Feinstein’s/54 below in New York City.”
“Narrator Gerachis, moving with grace and energy around the stage in Spencer’s sleek striped costume, tackles her tricky, all-singing-all-the-time role with verve and heart. She’s our link to the story—and her resounding soprano (despite some mike fuzz she nails the fast-patter Tim Rice lyrics) flies high on a string of songs, including Poor Poor Joseph and Pharaoh’s Story.“
