SETH SIKES IS STILL SINGING JUDY GARLAND @ 54 BELOW
Seth Sikes, who is returning for a third time to 54 Below, after two sold-out concerts, will welcome popular actress/singer Nellie McKay for a selection of songs during his show Seth Sikes Is Still Singing Judy Garland.

Nellie McKay has previously released five full-length albums including My Weekly Reader which is being released later this month. She is a previous Theatre World Award winner and her music has been heard on TV shows such as Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Weeds and Grey’s Anatomy.
Seth Sikes Is Still Singing Judy Garland was conceived by Seth Sikes and Tony-Award winning Lyricist Lisa Lambert, and will feature Music Direction by Mark Hartman and orchestrations by Matt Aument. The evening is directed by Eric Gilliland.

Its sultry after-hours ambience is enhanced by brocade-patterned wall panels planted with orange-shaded lanterns. And the atmosphere is warmer and sexier than in Manhattan’s other major supper clubs."
