I Wish: The Roles That Could Have Been – HOME EDITION – PREMIERED Friday, May 22 at 6:30pm
Alexandra Silber is back with a brand new live quarantine edition of I Wish! Everyone has dreams that we fear will pass us by. For actors those come in the shape and form of roles—whether they’re grown up and become too old for that child star turn, to the soprano never being considered for the baritone lead, everyone has a song in their heart that they’ll likely never get to see come to fruition with a crowd and in lights.
I Wish: The Roles That Could Have Been — is just that chance for all to embody those “roles come true,” and for an audience to bear witness to actors living out those dreams. Join us for a night of surprise, as you see and hear your favorite performers in ways you’d never imagine them.

When they miscarry and struggle to conceive again, their marriage (and their sex-life) strains to the brink; so much so that when Amy re-deploys for her second tour of Iraq and Pooch takes on an attractive pupil, they must confront the question:
“In a world where most marriages end in divorce …
Who wants to be like most marriages?”

Rachel Tucker – Friday, June 12 at 6:30pm EDT
Following starring roles in London and a triumphant run as Elphaba in Wicked the Musical, Rachel Tucker returns with an encore of her hit cabaret show, which transferred to New York after two sell-out London runs and a UK Tour. In March 2020, as the New York shutdown took effect, Rachel had just started a run as Captain Beverly Bass in the Broadway production of Come From Away, returning to the role she had played in the West End for over a year and which had earned her an Olivier nomination.
Rachel reprised her role as Elphaba in London’s West End, as part of the show’s West End 10th Anniversary cast, having also previously played the role to great acclaim in London for 3 years, where she holds the title of longest consecutive running Elphaba and won the 2011 WhatsOnStage award for Best Takeover in a Role. Rachel was the recipient of the Best Female Replacement Award at the 2016 Broadway.com Audience Awards for playing the role on Broadway in 2016. Rachel made her Broadway debut in late 2014 in Sting’s musical The Last Ship, creating the role of Meg Dawson, to rave reviews.
Rachel Tucker: Live at Feinstein’s/54 Below was directed by Guy Retallack, who directed both of Rachel’s previously successful one-woman shows in London, and was brought to you by Fane Productions.
Rachel was joined at this performance by special guest Kara Lindsay, who was her co-star in Wicked on Broadway.

54 Sings the Jonas Brothers – wednesday, June 24 at 6:30pm EDT
Have you been to the Year 3000? Have you caught the Lovebug or unknowingly sent out an S.O.S.? Don’t second-guess; you may be a Jonas Brothers fan.
