Head down the steps to 54 Below, where each week dozens of stars—from Tony winners to familiar faces of the screen—belt it out as you dine. Here are just a few recently announced acts that have our attention.MARA WILSON & JENNY JAFFE”Send in the Clowns” – 7/21 at 7PMIt’s no secret that funny ladies of Twitter Mara Wilson and Jenny Jaffe love Broadway. The two trade tweeting for belting as they—and their fellow comedian friends—take on their favorite musical theater roles. Years ago, Wilson starred in Matilda on the big screen. Is it possible that she’ll get a little bit “Naughty” once more? And this time, sing about it?

But remarkably, Ripley has yet to play a Sondheim role on Broadway. For two nights, she’ll take on myriad numbers penned by the maestro, from “Rose’s Turn” to “Ladies Who Lunch.” Everybody rise!

The Broadway.com Audience Choice Award-winning Cinderella has assembled a group of some the Great White Way’s most dignified leading ladies—including The King and I Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles, Caissie Levy and Kara Lindsay—for a (lovely) night of glass slippers, tiaras and ballgowns.

We honestly don’t know much more than that, but we’re already sold. Will he sing Side Show? Will there be elephants? Will Mama Broadway come down from Eggfartopia for a guest appearance? We can’t wait to find out! GET TICKETSANNELIESE VAN DER POLWith Raven-Symoné – 9/22 at 7PMGet out that lunchbox! The That’s So Raven favorite has graced the Broadway and off-Broadway stage before, but this marks her New York solo show debut, and she’s pulling out all the stops: from Babs to Joni Mitchell. Fellow Broadway alum and Raven co-star Raven-Symoné will make a cameo, and they or may or may not sing about shopping and acid rain. We’re not sure. GET TICKETScenter_img Laura Osneslast_img
