Broadway leading man Jason Danieley returns with an emotional new show August 1 and 2 at 7:00 PM @

(New York) Jason Danieley returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below on August 1 and 2 at 7PM with Reflections, an evening of Broadway and Great American Songbook standards threading together reflections of yesterday, today, and a hopeful look toward tomorrow.

Danieley is a highly-revered, award-winning, and critically-acclaimed Broadway star. Ben Brantley from The New York Times called him “the most exquisite tenor on Broadway.”

In addition to his many roles on Broadway (Candide, The Full Monty, Curtains!, Chicago, The Visit, Next to Normal and Pretty Woman), he has been a solo cabaret and symphony guest artist for over 24 years. His passion for telling stories through song is felt through his exquisite choices of songwriters. Included in this show; the Gershwins, Rodgers & Hart, Jule Styne, Marc Blitzstein, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael, and many more.

“A magnetic Broadway leading man… [Danieley] belongs to an enlightened breed of male entertainer whose virility is tempered by their sensitivity.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“A natural charmer… his singing is sensitive, pure and gorgeously robust.” -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Joseph Thalken is an award-winning composer whose theatre works include Was, Harold and Maude, And the Curtain Rises, and Borrowed Dust. His songs have been recorded by Rebecca Luker, Howard McGillin, BJ Ward, Pamela Myers, Todd Murray, and opera star Nathan Gunn. On Broadway, Thalken conducted Victor/Victoria with Julie Andrews and Liza Minnelli, and Gypsy with Patti LuPone. As a pianist and music director, he has worked with Bernadette Peters, Elizabeth Futral, Denyce Graves, Polly Bergen, Faith Prince, Kristin Chenoweth, Marin Mazzie, Jason Danieley, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Michael Crawford and many more. He has taught at Yale University and is a graduate of Northwestern University.

Feinstein’s/54 Below is committed to the health of its performers, staff, and guests and has created a Safety Plan to ensure safe conditions along with optimum performing conditions. The new policies require that performers, production, kitchen, and dining room staff, as well as all audience members show proof of vaccination to enter the premises. Additional information on our safety protocols can be found here.

Feinstein’s/54 Below, which set a new culinary standard for New York City entertainment venues when it opened 9 years ago in 2012 will continue to offer elevated classic American cuisine but with a brand-new menu created by Consulting Chef Harold Dieterle, best known to foodies everywhere as the Season 1 winner of Top Chef. Chef Dieterle’s prior restaurants include Perilla, The Marrow, and Kin Shop, which received a two-star rating from the New York Times.

Presiding over the kitchen and leading the culinary team on a nightly basis will be Chef de Cuisine Jonathan Mecca, who formerly served as Executive Sous Chef at One If by Land and La Grenouille, among others. Although the new menu will retain some beloved guest favorites, it will feature mostly new dishes designed to delight and inspire diners at both the 7:00 and 9:45 PM shows.

Located at 254 West 54th Street, the club presents live shows at 7 PM and 9:45 PM. Late night programming will resume in the coming months.
