Join Joseph Thor and Friends as they piece together a brand-new musical live at 54 Below! The secret formula to a great musical is not a secret at all. There are archetypal numbers that make up all the best shows. You might even know some by name, like "The Eleven O'Clock Number" (Rose's Turn, anyone?) or the "I Want Song," (The Wizard and I, is a fav) but there are even more like the "Charm Song" (Modern Major General, perhaps) or perhaps even the "Soliloquy" (not just the song from Carousel) you may not have heard of. Using this formula, we have compiled the best songs across the musical theater catalogue in each category to create a new super-musical! Produced by Joseph Thor and featuring an all-star cast of some of NYC's newest talent, come out and experience the greatest musical ever made!

Featuring Quinn Alden, Ashley Marie Arnold, Caleb Barnett, Ryan Basch, Tony Cambria, Landry Champlin, Emmy Daniels, Logan Farley, Nicolas Fernandez, Emerson Fischer, Tali Green, Jonah Hale, Abby Hammond, Rae Hillman, Gina M.

West End actress and comic Ellie Nunn makes her 54 Below and New York solo concert debut with her sell out show Ellie Nunn Sings Sondheim at People.

She has also made brief stints on BBC's "Doctors," "Eastenders," and Hallmark's spring classic Presence of Love.

Join this rising star (no one has ever called her that) for an evening of songs and stories celebrating the work of a genius (Sondheim, not Ellie) and fall in love with this haplessly romantic Brit who has too much time on her hands, a tendency to speak in the third person, and a lot of love to give where Stephen is concerned. There won't be trumpets, there might be sock puppets…
