Kyle Ewalt & Michael Ian Walker, writers of the hit show BROMANCE, return to 54 Below after two smash, sold-out Pajamboree concerts, where they turned the club into a musical theater sleepover party. Their work has also been seen at Joe’s Pub, Playwrights Horizons, Ars Nova, Caroline’s On Broadway, and 92Y. They are also the curating producers of the emerging composer series Behind the Music-al, produced in conjunction with The Dramatists Guild of America.


Drew Overcash is a Midwestern songwriter whose work has been heard around the city at venues like Joe's Pub, Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, Birdland, 54 Below, and The Pershing Square Signature Center. His musical, BOYS VS. GIRLS, under production contract with Last Call Theatricals, held its NYC premier concert at (le) Poisson Rouge this past spring. He is a creator of the sold-out concert series Twenty-Somethings (in it's third year at The Highline Ballroom), the St. Jude Benefit Concert series raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and the Fresh Pens Contest, which gives new songwriters the opportunity to showcase their music. @djovercash

54 BELOW, Broadway’s Supper Club, is the new performance venue in the grand tradition of New York City nightlife. A few blocks from the heart of Times Square and just below the legendary Studio 54, 54 BELOW is a classically designed state-of-the art nightclub in the theatre district that hosts audiences with warmth and style. The venue provides a food and beverage menu from early evening through the wee hours of the morning that is worthy of the world-class entertainment on the stage. In their description of 54 BELOW, The New York Times writes “the club has the intimacy of a large living room with unimpeded views and impeccable sound; there is not a bad seat. Its sultry after-hours ambience is enhanced by brocade-patterned wall panels planted with orange-shaded lanterns. And the atmosphere is warmer and sexier than in Manhattan’s other major supper clubs.” Located at 254 West 54th Street, 54 BELOW features up to three shows nightly with cover charges ranging from $15-$95.
