Russell Harvard: From the Ground Up, feat. Michael Cerveris, Andy Mientus, & more!
July 15, 2022
Broadway star Russell Harvard (Spring Awakening, To Kill A Mockingbird) makes his 54 Below debut with his all-star friends in a night of musical storytelling through American Sign Language.
Russell takes you on a personal journey of his life, looking back at what ignited his passion for combining music and sign language in his performances. Expect movie classics from The Wizard of Oz, Jonathan Larson’s “One Song Glory” from Rent, Rocky Horror’s “Sweet Transvestite” and a number from Sondheim and Bernstein’s West Side Story.
A Deaf kid from Texas gets empowered by his muse Madonna and ends up on Broadway. Experience Russell beautifully interweaving his story with pop songs and Broadway favorites.
Music Director Dan Pardo (Amazing Grace, “John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch,” Eli Bolin Has No Friends) returns to 54 Below on piano.
