An intimate partnering with Ronald McDonald House occurred at 54 Below on Mon. September 23rd when NY Pops director Steven Reineke hosted an evening featuring performances by Tony Award Nominees Laura Osnes and Santino Fontana (currently appearing on Broadway in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella).
After a champagne reception, the dinner performance by the two Cinderella stars featured a delightful program of storytelling and songs revealing not only their glorious voices but the various faux pas they encountered together and separately in their careers. No doubt, they are adorable and oh, so talented!
Musicians included: Andy Einhorn, Musical Director on piano, Mark Vanderpoel on bass and Rich Rosenzweig on drums.
