Join fictional Broadway diva Ruby Manger as she makes her long-awaited return to the New York Stage at Feinstein’s/ 54 Below! Julia Mattison stars as Ms. Manger, an enigmatic Broadway icon, famous for such roles as Trudy the Blind Ghost in I See You, Not Really, But You Know What I Mean (Tony Award Winner, Best Musical and Best Actress) and as Roberta in the film “Inside Roberta” (Sundance Film Festival rejected submission). Through a whirlwind of songs, stories, and Broadway’s special guests, Ruby will re-visit her greatest career highlights and lowlights, from winning her first Tony award, to her not-so-secret love affairs, to doing quaaludes in a basement with Rod Stewart that one time. Ms. Manger is back from rehab, better than ever, and ready to re- claim her place as Broadway’s shining Ruby with a thrilling and revealing four show run at Broadway's Nightclub!
Written & conceived by Mattison, Ruby Manger Live! The Farewell Engagement features original music by Mattison and Noel Carey, musical supervision & orchestrations by Charlie Rosen (NBC’s Maya & Marty, Charlie Rosen’s Broadway Big Band), and is directed by Max Friedman (Midnight at The Never Get, Rachael Lily Rosenbloom...). Special guests will include Jean Dijon (Andrew Kober, Sunday in the Park), Allen Quiche Lorraine (Taylor Trensch, Hello, Dolly!), Sharon Coq Au Vin (Sara Chase, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), with Randy Newman (Noel Carey, Brooklyn Sound) at the piano. Charlie Rosen leads a seven-piece onstage band.
