The Town Hall's Broadway by the Year series continues June 27 at 8 PM with an evening entitled Almost on Broadway.
Created, written, hosted, and directed by Scott Siegel, the concert celebrates well-known songs that were never heard on Broadway, highlighting tunes from shows that played Off-Broadway and regional venues.
Interpreting these songs are Tony nominee Christine Andreas (On Your Toes, Oklahoma!), Jason Graae (Forever Plaid, Falsettos), Ed Staudenmayer (Forbidden Broadway), Kelli Rabke (Joseph…; Children of Eden), Crystal Joy (Motown: The Musical), Brian Charles Rooney (The Threepenny Opera), Pedro Coppeti (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), and Danny Gardner (Flying Over Sunset).
Attendees can expect to hear tunes from Forever Plaid, Forbidden Broadway, Beehive, The World Goes Round, The Last Five Years, Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, The Fantasticks,The Baker's Wife, Children of Eden, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah.
“New York theatre, and theatre around the country, is so much more than just Broadway shows,” said Siegel in an earlier statement. “We look forward to spotlighting the shows that have enriched our musical theatre lives without ever having been on the Main Stem. As always, as befits this legendary series, the concert will be brimming with comedy, drama, and dance.”
The season will conclude September 19 with A One Night Only History of Broadway Song and Dance.
