This fall, the incomparable Tamara Tunie will return to 54 Below for a highly anticipated show kicking off her national cabaret tour. The Pittsburgh daughter will wow audiences with a fresh take on the “Legends from The Burgh,” where she celebrates the music of the legendary artists that hail from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the city of Three Rivers.

“Growing up in Pittsburgh, I had an inkling of the many musical talents who were from ‘the ‘Burgh,’ but was thrilled to learn the depth to which those waters ran,” says Ms. Tunie. From Lena Horne and Henry Mancini to Phyllis Hyman and George Benson, Tamara will celebrate the variety of composers and singers in four concerts at 54 Below.

Known for her starring roles in films such as Flight with Denzel Washington, television series like Law & Order: SVU and the Sundance Channel’s The Red Road, and on Broadway in Julius Caesar and Dreamgirls, Ms. Tunie holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Carnegie Mellon University. She has performed in jazz concerts at the Allen Room/Jazz at Lincoln Center and Feinstein’s with incomparable musicians such as Mike Renzi, Ted Firth, and Roger Humphries. She has also performed for the Mabel Mercer Foundation at Town Hall and at Symphony Space, bringing down the house with music from Billie Holiday to Cole Porter. Her performances in “All That’s Jazz” have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Penn State University/Allegheny County’s Student Scholarship Fund.
