Norm Lewis’s appearances at Feinstein’s/54 Below have rapidly become a Holiday Tradition and are one of this great Broadway leading man’s favorite ways to end the year, spending time and spreading holiday cheer with friends and fans in Broadway’s living room.
This year’s show is once again directed by Richard Jay-Alexander (Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Bernadette Peters, and others) perhaps the premiere director of concert appearances working today and will include a largely new program that will also feature some of Norm’s audience’s favorites from his past two Christmases at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Once again, Joseph Joubert (The Color Purple) returns as Musical Director, along with Norm’s hot bass and rhythm section – George Farmer and Perry Cavari. As in past years, very special guests will join Norm in the fun.
Norm Lewis continues to be one of Broadway’s most sought after leading men, and spent much of this year downtown, in Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop at the Barrow Street Theater co-starring with Carolee Carmello, in Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. Norm is a regular on VH1’s Daytime Divas, which stars his good friend Vanessa Williams, playing her hot (and conniving) doorman, William. You also love him as Senator Edison Davis on ABC’s Scandal.
