Welcome Rachel Potter Home
February 24 at 54 Below
Although the producers at The X Factor want us to think they discovered Rachel Potter, we know she was a Broadway showstopper way before she ever sang for Simon. The Evita alum has returned to NYC and she’s headlining her own country and Broadway mash-up concert at 54 Below. Click for tickets!

OK, Wicked fanatics—you officially have an excuse to catch the show one more time.

If you missed the hit drama War Horse on Broadway, gallop on over to the historic Ziegfeld Theatre to see Albert and his best friend Joey reunite on the big screen.
