Tovah Feldshuh takes to the stage as Leona Helmsley. It’s 2018 and the Queen of Mean becomes the Queen of Cabaret.
Tovah Feldshuh, six time Tony and Emmy nominated star of “The Walking Dead,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and now CBS’ “Salvation” returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below in a new show featuring highlights from the new Broadway-bound musical Queen of Mean, based on the New York Times best-selling biography by Ransdell Pierson. Tovah as Leona sings and stings about everything from her meteoric rise from office temp to Queen of the Palace, to her Real Estate rival Donald Trump. Tovah’s Leona is proud to be below Studio 54 whose owners ALSO served time for the crime of tax evasion. So Harry on Down for an evening of fun, frolic, and foreclosure!
Tovah is Leona! features music by Ron Passaro, lyrics by David Lee, and a book by Alex Lippard and David Lee. Concept and additional lyrics by Alex Lippard. Musical direction by James Bassi and directed by Jeff Harnar.
