Tony Award-winning actress Joanna Gleason, who took audiences Into the Woods as the original Baker's Wife, made her long-awaited New York City solo Cabaret debut Oct. 9 for a three-performance engagement at 54 Below. Special guests turned out to show their support at the Oct. 16 performance.



Accompanied by the string quartet Well Strung, Gleason will perform her final show Oct. 23 at 9:30 PM. The evenings promise "tunes ranging from Billy Joel to Dave Frishberg to Johnny Mathis, with maybe even a little walk through the woods."
