Each week, BroadwayBox editor Josh Ferri narrows down all the happenings in NYC to three can’t-miss events. This week, we are calling-out two Tony-winning leading ladies back onstage in NYC and the final performances of a unique and “charming” off-Broadway musical.
Cady Huffman Can Cook and Belt at 54 Below
Tony winner Cady Huffman still has it and she’s going to flaunt it at 54 Below. The Producers star debuts her new solo show titled And She Can Cook Too at the Midtown nightspot on January 14. The Broadway belter turned Iron Chef America judge is talking about life, love and what she ate along the way. Fans can expect tunes from Hank Williams, Cy Coleman, Joni Mitchell and more. Sounds like a show we’ll be hungry to have seconds of.
Bebe Neuwirth Is Stroking You in Chicago
Bebe Neuwirth is back in Broadway’s Chicago and now she’s running the show as badass prison warden Matron “Mama” Morton. The two-time Tony winner picked up one of her trophies for originating the role of Velma Kelly in the long-running revival, and then she returned to musical to star as the other merry murderess Roxie Hart. Now, Neuwirth is home again at the Ambassador Theatre giving a showstopping performance as Morton. See this legendary star in this legendary musical for the next eight weeks only.
Do Svidaniya Natasha
Music, food, vodka and love— what more do you need during a night out on the town? Sadly, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, the rock-and-roll musical inspired by War and Peace, is ending its off-Broadway run on January 19. The Kazino tent in Times Square is transformed into a lush Russian supper club for the immersive, interactive musical, and the result is truly one of the most unique theatrical experiences you can have right now in NYC. Let your next great love affair be with Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, its killer score and the cast's brilliant performances.
