Here's the description of The Ultimate 54 Below Challenge from 54 Below:


The Ultimate 54 Below Challenge is a new competition filled with audience participation that’s a mix of cabaret performance, wet and wild game show, and a night of drinking and chaos in your favorite basement. Join your favorite Broadway performers as they go head to head and belt to belt for the title of “The Ultimate 54 Below Champion.” The catch? They don’t know what songs they’re going to be singing, they don’t know any of the twists being thrown at them, and you are the judge as to who will be crowned the winner!

Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for an evening like you’ve never seen before where anything and everything can and will happen!

Hosted by Anna Roisman (HQ Trivia)
