Last night, May 2, The Town Hall, led by Marvin Leffler and Lawrence Zucker celebrated its 90th Anniversary with "Town Hall at 90," a benefit concert paying tribute to the rich cultural history of the institution from 1921 to the present day. The concert starred Tony® Award winner Jason Robert Brown, Tony® Award nominee Liz Callaway, Tony® Award nominee and Drama Desk, Theatre World and Emmy® Award winner Tovah Feldshuh, legendary Jazz guitarist and banjoist Bucky Pizzarelli and Tony® Award nominee Emily Skinner. Dancers/choreographers Jeffry Denman ("White Christmas," "Yank!") and Noah Racey ("Curtains") danced together. Scott Siegel, creator/writer and host of The Town Hall's acclaimed Broadway By The Year® series, has written and will host the evening. All proceeds will benefit The Town Hall's Educational Outreach program. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the event and brings you photo coverage below.

The original performers' contemporary counterparts recalled both in narrative and with performances famous historical moments in musical theater, jazz, opera, dance, blues, country music, and comedy that took place on The Town Hall stage. The benefit and pre-concert celebration was co-chaired by Douglas Durst from The Durst Organization and Timothy Tompkins from the Times Square Alliance.

The Mayor has proclaimed May 2 as The Town Hall Day and the New York State Assemble and Senate have issued a joint resolution congratulating the Hall.
