An amazing array of theater stars will be assembled by producer/writer/host Scott Siegel with the express purpose of singing the songs that they performed in their original Broadway productions. Decade upon decade of Broadway history will be on glorious display on the Feinstein’s/54 Below stage on May 20, when a galaxy of stars from a the 20th and 21st centuries return to sing the songs that made (and make) the Great White Way great.
In this historic, nightclub benefit concert event, the history of Broadway will be re-lived when the actors from the original casts of more than a dozen different musicals once again sing the songs that thrilled audiences when they were first performed on the New York stage. There will be more Tony nominees and Tony winners performing at Feinstein’s/54 Below on May 20 than any other place but the actual Tony Awards! And oh the nostalgia! As the announcer for the Lone Ranger might say, “Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear” and hear not only the great songs of Broadway, but hear them sung by the actors and actresses who made them famous in the first place.
Scott Siegel created/wrote/hosted Broadway Originals for The Town Hall where it was that legendary institution’s gala annual concert for half-a-dozen years. Now, for the first time, Mr. Siegel is bringing this much-beloved and famous concert series from a theater that seats 1,500 people to the intimate surroundings of Feinstein’s/54 Below. The opportunity to witness the glory of Broadway, up close and personal, has never been more reachable.
