David Yazbek returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below this July with special guest Etai Benson, known for portraying Papi in the original Broadway cast of The Band’s Visit! Here’s a rare opportunity to see one of the theater’s most innovative composers do what he’s actually best at— thrilling a live audience. The New York Times has called his live performance “A thrill-ride at a volcano’s edge.” Together with Etai Benson, His Pre-Existing Conditions, a band of the most exciting musicians in NYC (including a mighty full horn section!), Yazbek will perform songs from his albums and shows— old, new, and upcoming.
Don’t miss this chance to see the Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winning composer/lyricist of Tootsie, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women On The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Band’s Visit, “Boardwalk Empire,” and the haunting “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego Theme” strut his piano-banging stuff. Join David Yazbek and Etai Benson for a celebratory evening of David’s incredible body of work!

David Yazbek makes music that jumps out of its skin. [He is] ferociously smart and intimidatingly hip. [His show] at Feinstein’s/54 Below [is] a raucous evening of unclassifiable musical comedy”
