To Feinstein's/
54 Below

Norm Lewis begins his 2nd Holiday Residency at Feinstein’s/54 Below on December 19th, for SIX performances, through Christmas Eve. This year, he’s calling it I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Like last year, he will be joined by a special guest each night, and it promises to be the hottest holiday bash in the  heart of Manhattan. Norm will be singing holiday favorites, putting his unique spin on material and doing some career favorites that have come to make him one of the most sought-after leading men on Broadway. Come celebrate with Norm and his talented friends. We’ve got a swingin’ band, led by Joseph Joubert and the party, once again, is directed by Richard Jay-Alexander. Just like last year … there will be plenty of surprises!

Special Guests:
Vanessa Williams (December 19)
Adrian Bailey (December 20)
Pastor Bobby Lewis (December 23)
