Dear Jon Hamm and the Cast of Mad Men,
We were planning to invite the guys from Glee to our next piano bar party, but Lea Michele and Darren Criss can deal—we're officially putting you on our guest list instead. We think it's amazing that you got crazy (and drunk?) and unleashed your inner mega-theater-nerds at the Mad Men wrap party. Yeah, we heard about that, and it's all in writing. Christina Hendricks told Vanity Fair: “There was a lot of singing of Little Shop of Horrors, ‘Defying Gravity’ [from Wicked], and a little bit of Frozen. I wish we were cooler.”
Wait, excuse us? EXCUSE US? What could possibly be cooler than seeing John Slattery tackle “Let It Go” with a side braid, or watching Elisabeth Moss belt “Defying Gravity” while cackling and standing on a chair? Nothing in the history of the universe, that’s what. And that’s exactly why we’re proposing a completely ridiculous but totally plausible dream set list for you guys to sing at our birthday party. If everything goes well, we could see a lot of great things in your future. Maybe even—dare we dream it?—a multi-year deal at 54 Below. Check out our picks below!
