On February 22, 1998, Madonna released what some have described as her most “adventurous” album: Ray of Light. Selling more than 16 million copies worldwide, this album earned the international sensation and beloved diva a total of four Grammy awards. This “introspective” album is one of her brightest achievements, and Feinstein’s/54 Below is celebrating its 20th birthday with a slew of NYC’s best comics, Broadway stars, and Madonna fans. Your favorite album only turns 20 once… so you better celebrate it in STYLE! Join us for an evening of earnest appreciate, hilarious storytelling, and one hell of a playlist.
