It's not unfamiliar to those who have performed at Feinstein's/54 Below—the ride from the green room on the 10th floor down to the basement, where the stage is located, can take awhile.
How to make good use of that time? Playbill invited Tony nominee Max von Essen (An American in Paris) to answer some questions and end the interview in a song for our new series “Elevator Pitch.” Watch the interview and listen to the actor sing "I Could've Danced All Night" from My Fair Lady.
The Broadway alum will take the stage at Feinstein's/54 Below October 4 as part of The New York Pops' cabaret fundraiser. Music Director Steven Reineke will host the event. Proceeds from the event support The New York Pops orchestra and PopsEd music programs., which allow students of all ages and backgrounds to participate in fully customizable music programs.
