Bringing together the music of the world’s most successful composer with the lyricist behind some of the best-selling albums of all time in an unprecedented one night only concert event unlike any before, Feinstein’s/54 Below is proud to present the New York City premiere of a landmark musical by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman, Whistle Down the Wind
. Containing the biggest international chart-topper from a musical in world history, “No Matter What,” originally popularized by Boyzone, the powerful and gripping tale of a Southern girl on the brink of womanhood and the dangerous, mysterious escaped convict that she encounters in her family’s barn whom she soon comes to believe to be none other than Jesus Christ himself, Whistle Down the Wind
is an unforgettable story brimming with poignancy, poetry, and provocation. Furthermore, it contains one of the most diverse scores ever composed, merging the sounds of moving gospel, thrilling rock, pop perfection, country crooning, and traditional musical theatre in a masterful melange of a musical masterpiece delighting young and old alike. Presented for the very first time in Manhattan with the generous participation of both Lloyd Webber and Steinman, Whistle Down the Wind
is the must-see musical theatre event of the Christmas season. Comprising an all-star cast populated with familiar faces from Broadway and beyond – many of them famously associated with the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber and the epic rock of Jim Steinman – Whistle Down the Wind
at Feinstein’s/54 Below promises to be simply divine. A memorable story of faith and a momentous score way ahead of its time in a concert event for the ages.
Produced by Van Dean. Musical Direction by Jacob Carr. Directed by Pat Cerasaro.
