Peter Allen’s short-lived 1988 gangster musical Legs Diamond lives again in a special 30th anniversary concert revival at Feinstein’s/54 Below December 3 starring original cast members, including Brenda Braxton.

Original cast members Christine Andreas and Bob Stillman, whose roles were both cut before the show opened, will also take part in the concert.

Legs Diamond opened December 26, 1988 and ran through February 19, 1989, garnering three Tony Award nominations (for choreography, costumes, and featured actress).
