Those four musicals, plus many others, all made their Broadway debut on West 44th Street at the historic Broadhurst Theatre. Celebrating its 100th birthday this year, the Broadhurst is going to get a fabulous centennial celebration at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Join us for an evening of songs and stories, performed by the legends themselves who were lucky enough to grace the Broadhurst stage!
The Untold Stories of Broadway’s Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Behind the Curtain’s Robert W Schneider will be on hand to share trivia and anecdotes about the theatre that has been home to such legends as Daniel Radcliffe, Nathan Lane, Elaine Stritch, Stephen Sondheim, and Neil Simon.
