Broadway by the Tear: Broadway’s Great Torch Songs & Tear Jerkers
July 29, 2017
There is nothing like a great torch song. The reason: we’ve all been there! We know what those emotions feel like and Broadway’s great composers take you back to that volcanic emotional moment when life and love combine in a tear-jerking chord that resonates with your soul. And we’ve got a whole show of those sensational songs! You’ll hear songs like Gershwin’s “But Not for Me,” Irving Berlin’s “What’ll I Do?, Jerry Herman’s “I Won’t Send Roses,” Stephen Sondheim’s “Losing My Mind,” and so many others from across the history of Broadway. And what great torch songs require are equally great performers and they will be drawn from the first ranks of our Broadway and nightclub stars.
Broadway by the Tear will be produced, written, and hosted by NY’s critically acclaimed impressario, Scott Siegel, who has created more than 300 major concerts around the world, including Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year. Scott has also written, directed, and produced concerts for Michael Feinstien. Here at Feinstein’s/54 Below, he is the creator of the long-running smash hit series, 54 Sings Broadway’s Greatest Hits.
