October 18th, 2015; 9:30pm at 54 Below
Hosted by Hunter Bell and Susan Blackwell
Great performers relive their terrible performances in the third annual benefit for The Performing Arts Project
On Sunday, October 18th at 54 Below, join Hunter Bell ([title of show], Grinch) and Susan Blackwell ([title of show], “Side By Side by Susan Blackwell”) as they host an evening of fabulous performers sharing video of 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. Current performers include Steven Pasquale (Bridges of Madison County, “Bloodline”), who developed the annual event as a fundraiser for The Performing Arts Project with his peers in mind, and Brian d’Arcy James (Something Rotten, “Smash”). More performers will be announced soon. “This benefit is to remind us all that we all have failed,” says Pasquale. “And failed miserably; in my case in particular. 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.”
