How 54 Below Is Entertaining Broadway Fans During the Coronavirus Quarantine
Feinstein’s / 54 Below is an NYC venue well-known for hosting three cabaret shows a night while bringing delicious food and drink to your table. The supper club has hosted some of Broadway’s best throughout the years; whether snagging Great White Way vocalists to sing Celine Dion classics, the best of Disney, or impossible-to-perform Stephen Sondheim songs, the talent at 54 Below is always top-notch.
Due to coronavirus (Covid-19), the club has been forced to close its doors. Yet, that doesn’t mean those behind the operation have forgotten about their devout enthusiasts. So, to all the theater fans out there, 54 Below has a treat for you.
