New Writers At 54! Nikko Benson Presents: ElseWhere, feat. Natalie Walker, Bonnie Milligan, & more!
June 8, 2022
Join Nikko Benson for his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut as he takes the stage and runs away with it, bringing you to forgotten and fantastical places. With the help of his impossibly talented friends, Nikko will take you on a journey from Where The Wild Things Are to Undersea Noir, through houses both Gingerbread and Haunted, past dinosaurs and zombie hordes — we’ll go anywhere and everywhere, as long as it’s somewhere else. We’ve all had enough of here, haven’t we?
Nikko Benson is the Jonathan Larson Award-winning author of Nikola Tesla Drops The Beat (Adirondack Theater Festival) and Start Again (Musical Theater Factory). His songs have been featured in the Kennedy Center’s Broadway: The Next Generation series and on Brian Stokes Mitchell’s album Plays With Music. But be warned: the songs you’ll hear at this one-night-only event will not be those songs. These songs will be new, never-before-heard, and certainly-not-ASCAP-approved. Attend at your own risk.
