Directed by John Simpkins and produced by Jennifer Ashley Tepper, this wild yuletide explosion is part rock concert, part theater piece, and part theme park attraction come to life. Featuring brand new holiday songs, old favorites, a huge cast of musical theater all-stars, tiny elves, enormous reindeer, an inebriated Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and more whiskey-fueled shenanigans than you can shake a candy cane at, it promises to be the hap-hap-happiest holiday hoedown ever seen on stage.

Scott Siegel's critically acclaimed Broadway Ballyhoo!, which regularly features great Broadway and nightclub stars in New York City, makes its debut at 54 Below!
This ever-changing musical variety show, soon to begin its third year of performances, will play 54 Below every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 9:30pm.
Every Thursday night at 11 PM Broadway Ballyhoo: A Show Tune Hootenanny! will offer approximately four different stars each week who will sing Broadway's great songs. This ever-changing cast of stars will sing the show tunes they know and love best. Jesse Kissel is the musical director and Scott Siegel hosts!
In an evening featuring Barrett Wilbert Weed (Heathers, Bare, Found), Laura Dreyfuss (Glee, Once), and Alex Finke (Les Miserables), performers from Broadway and Off-Broadway will come together to sing music spanning the pop, rock and folk genres. Proceeds from the evening will go to Syrian refugees receiving aid from UNICEF, which is currently mobilizing the largest humanitarian operation in history.
Since the Syrian conflict began four years ago, over 12 million people, more than the entire population of New York City, have been displaced both inside the country and beyond its borders. Because bombs are still being dropped and fighting is raging with no end in sight, too many are unable to return to their homes and every day lives.
This concert is an effort to raise funds and awareness for a situation that is growing more desperate each day, and aims to serve as a reminder that the Broadway community has a special ability to bring people together to positively impact the world.

The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs—uncensored and unrehearsed. It's Clue meets adult "Mad Libs," and it's never the same show twice!
