54 Celebrates The Neil Simon Theatre
June 29, 2016
Annie. Company. Bells Are Ringing. Merrily We Roll Along.
Those four musicals, plus many others, made their Broadway debut on West 52nd Street at the historic Alvin Theatre, which opened in 1927. Then, on this date in 1983, the Alvin Theatre was renamed the Neil Simon Theatre, where it went on to house such blockbusters as Hairspray. And what better way to celebrate the Alvin/ Neil Simon Theatre than by coming out to Feinstein’s/54 Below for an evening of songs and stories, performed by the legends themselves who were lucky enough to grace its stage.
Feinstein’s/ 54 Below Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper will be on hand to share trivia and anecdotes about the theatre that has been host to such legends like Stephen Sondheim, the Gershwin Brothers, Cole Porter, and Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Expect theatre professionals who tread the boards at the Alvin/Neil Simon over several decades all coming together to pay tribute to this fabulous theatre!
