New York, NY (June 10, 2014) – Following a sold-out debut performance in March, Broadway personality and SiriusXM Radio “On Broadway” host Julie James will encore her new musical comedy, The Julie James Show, on Saturday, June 21st at 11 PM at 54 Below, it was announced today. To Broadway performers, fans and “On Broadway” listeners, Julie is best known as the effervescent host of “Broadway Names with Julie James.” Now Julie utilizes a thrilling 3 ½ octave range with hilarious stories and songs to reveal a childhood obsession with jingles, theme songs and cast albums, as well as a performance background in opera and musical theatre that would ultimately lead her to her role at SiriusXM, where all of these elements combine into one incredible dream job.
Julie remarked, “Our friends performing in Broadway shows made a lot of noise after having to miss the debut, so I’m especially excited to encore this show at 11 PM so they can join the party this time! That also means it’ll be a great night of stargazing for their fans in the audience, too.”
Julie spills the showbiz beans in this special one-night-only event, with snappy stories and original songs sure to dazzle any music theatre lover. A fast-paced romp of a variety show with rollicking new songs, long-lost Broadway gems, and an impromptu visit with celebrities in the audience, the show is a delight for Broadway fans and pop-culture geeks alike. With new songs by long-time collaborator Aaron Hagan, Julie rolls back the radio curtain on what it takes to run the only 24-7 Broadway radio station in the world while juggling jingles for Howard Stern, working the Red Carpet at the Tonys, and recording chatfests with all her theatre heroes back at the SiriusXM studios. It’s a classic evening of favorite tunes with an unconventional style and surprising twists as Julie comes out to the world as the songstress, storyteller and comedienne she truly is.
