There's no denying it: We love love love Rachel Potter! We rooted for her to win the last cycle of The X Factor and were devastated when she was eliminated. (Maybe that's why it got canceled...JK!) But our tears have been dried by the news that the Evita vet is making her 54 Below debut on February 24! The cherry on the top of this musical sundae? She'll be joined by Heidi Blickenstaff!
In addition to her star-making performance as Peron’s Mistress in the first Broadway revival of Andrew Llyod Webber’s Evita, Potter made her Main Stem debut as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family and toured as Glinda in Wicked. Her memorable X Factor performances of Queen's "Somebody to Love," Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable," Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance," the Isley Brothers' "This Old Heart of Mine," Martina McBride's "Anyway," Heart's "Alone" and Kelly Clarkson's "From This Moment On" helped make her a fan favorite.
When she hits the cabaret stage at 54 Below, Potter will be accompanied by an awesome line-up of musicians, including Matt Hinkley, Miles Aubrey, Ken Dow, Joseph Brent and Damien Bassman. Make sure you welcome Potter back to the Big Apple and get your tickets to see her live right now! Like, right this second. What the heck are you waiting for? Do it.
