Sam Bendrix at the Bon Soir
September 24 - October 17
By Keith Bunin
Luke Macfarlane (ABC's Brothers and Sisters) transforms Martinis Above Fourth in Hillcrest into a Greenwich Village nightclub in 1958 - a decade before the Stonewall riots. The drinks and music flow as a young singer and his band take the stage for their last performance before leaving New York City for good. Macfarlane and his band showcase a musical score of American song classics that you won't want to miss.> Learn more about the WoW Program
