Let Me Try That Again: Take 4
Hosted by Susan Blackwell and Rory O’Malley
Great performers relive their terrible performances in the fourth annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project at Feinstein’s/54 Below

On Sunday, September 18th at 54 Below, join Susan Blackwell ([title of show], “Side By Side by Susan Blackwell”) and Rory O’Malley (Hamilton, Book of Mormon) as they host an evening of fabulous performers sharing their most embarrassing moments onstage and then redeeming themselves by recreating that moment. At the end of the evening, the audience will vote on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night.

Performers in Let Me Try That Again: Take 4 will be announced soon. Steve Pasquale (Robber Bridegroom, Bridges of Madison County), developed the annual event as a fundraiser for the Performing Arts Project with his peers in mind. “This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed. And failed miserably; in my case in particular,” says Pasquale. “But it’s also to remind us about persistence, and focus, and moving forward. And about recognizing how important it is to not take ourselves too seriously. It will be a crazy fun night.”

Let Me Try That Again: Take 4
is an annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project: a not-for-profit organization that provides vibrant theatrical training to a generation of young performers. The Performing Arts Project offers dynamic and constantly evolving annual programming, the cornerstone of which is their summer intensive during the month of July.
