Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford and the Whiskey 5 will ring in the New Year at Feinstein's/54 Below with a show on December 31 at 11pm titled New Year's Magic.

The cabaret is described as follows: "Come ring in your 20-Sweet-16 with an eclectic mix of songs, stories, some sort-of impressive magic tricks, and an appearance made by a rainbow. Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford and music director Will Van Dyke reprise some of their Lost In The Stars favorites as well as debut some new tunes to celebrate this past year of the Goat. (Hopefully, goat cheese will be on the menu.) Get your midnight kiss in one of the swankiest rooms in New York during a night that's sure to be one of laughter, love, looking back and looking forward...At midnight of course!!! After midnight, the tables and seats will be whisked away, allowing everyone to start their new year with the best dance party in town! Tables will be set up around the dance floor for those who want a "disco nap" in between songs."

Doors will open at 9pm. Seats are $330-$350, including two courses, a dessert buffet after the show/during the dance party, and an open bar for the entire evening. Premium seats will be $425, including a half bottle of Laurent Perrier Brut Champagne for each party of two and an individual dessert platter during the dance party. Tickets will be available to the general public starting September 30.

Ashford earned a 2013 Tony nomination for her performance in Kinky Boots and a 2015 Tony Award for her performance in You Can't Take It With You. She begins previews in the Broadway revival of Sylvia on October 2.
