11 O’Clock Numbers: The Songs That Lit Up Broadway!
December 20, 2018
This brand new musical revue, when originally launched at Feinstein’s/54 Below earlier this year, played to a sold out audience and a standing ovation. No wonder it’s returning this winter, with the intent of not just repeating its past success, but topping it!
The show is exclusively comprised of Broadway’s most famous 11 O’Clock Numbers! The term “11 O’Clock Number” is an insider theatre expression that was invented when the curtain on Broadway went up at 8:45 PM and usually came down between 11:15 and 11:30 PM. The 11 O’Clock Number was the pivotal song that hurtled the plot toward its dramatic conclusion. Every show needed an 11 O’Clock Number — and the great shows had sensational ones! You’re going to hear the sensational ones!
This freshly realized show feature songs like “Memory” from Cats, “Back to Before” from Ragtime, “Being Alive” from Company, and “It’s the Last Midnight” from Into the Woods. You’ll hear famous 11 O’Clock Numbers from Golden Era Broadway classics as well as 11 O’Clock Numbers from today’s most famous shows.
The creator of 11 O’Clock Numbers, New York City impresario Scott Siegel, has handpicked Drama Desk Nominee and Broadway star Farah Alvin, Three-Penny Opera star Brian Charles Rooney, and new star on the rise, Mia Gerachis, to headline in this new, critically acclaimed revue. Plus, a Special Guest Star will be added to the cast, as well.
For his part, Siegel, who is the creator of Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year, and who has produced, written, and directed concerts for Michael Feinstein, will write, direct, and host 11 O’Clock Numbers on August 10th at 9:30 PM.
