Photo Coverage: Broadway By The Year 'Musicals of 1924'
Monday evening February 23rd kicked off the ninth season Broadway By The Year, known for great singing and spectacular Broadway dancing. The series is created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel for The Town Hall.
Broadway Musicals of 1924 was directed by Jeffry Denman.
This edition of the critically acclaimed series marked the earliest year ever covered, and included such famous shows as The Student Prince, Rose-Marie, Lady Be Good, Charlot's Revue, The Music Box Revue of 1924, and more.
Built in 1921 by a group of suffragettes, The Town Hall began as a lecture hall and public forum for debates. Over the decades, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Billie Holiday, Igor Stravinsky, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis have graced the stage. Today the hall flourishes as a popular, affordable venue, boasting the hottest acts in rock, pop, folk, cabaret, world music, comedy and dance, including Billy Joel, Blondie, Elvis Costello, Natalie Merchant, Graham Nash, Liza Minnelli, Cyndi Lauper, Norah Jones, Andre Watts, Henry Rollins, Joe Jackson, Pink Martini, Regina Spector, Brian Adams, Aimee Mann and Dawn Upshaw. For over a decade, The Town Hall has hosted live broadcasts of Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion. Over the past two-and-a-half decades, The Town Hall has produced a number of new and critically acclaimed musical series, which include The Century of Change, Not Just Jazz, Broadway by the Year® and The Broadway Cabaret Festival.
Scott Siegel has created three acclaimed and popular series for The Town Hall: the critically acclaimed Broadway By the Year, now beginning its ninth season, the Broadway Cabaret Festival, and the Broadway Summer Festival. Mr. Siegel also conceived and produces both Broadway Unplugged and The Nightlife Awards at The Town Hall. Scott and his wife Barbara are authors (47 books, including The Encyclopedia of Hollywood) and critics ("The Siegel Column" and "The Two of Clubs" on Talkin' Broadway).
