The incomparable Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe return to Feinstein’s/54 Below to showcase songs from some of their most beloved musicals!
Mean Girls. Heathers. Legally Blonde. Bat Boy. Sarah, Plain And Tall. Dave. Because of Winn Dixie. Together and separately, these brilliant composer/lyricist/bookwriters have crafted classic stories, ballads, and lyrics that have inspired massive fan bases and bonafide cult followings across the globe. Now, they’re combining their repertoires publicly onstage for the first time since 2014.
For one night only at Feinstein’s/54 Below, both Benjamin and O’Keefe will join some of their current and former cast members to perform tunes from their favorite shows in which they have written or composed.
With Benjamin’s Mean Girls currently breaking box office records on Broadway, and O’Keefe’s Heathers taking the West End by storm, you never know who may pop by this evening of masterful storytelling.
