Stephen Schwartz has teamed up with the New York City opera for the New York premiere of his first opera, Seance on a Wet Afternoon. The prodigious Oscar and Grammy Award-winning composer has written the scores to hit shows Godspell, Pippin, and Wicked, which continues to break Broadway attendance records and has become one of the most popular musicals of all time.

Schwartz's compelling new psychological thriller is based on the novel by Mark McShane and the 1964 noir movie adaptation of the same name. Lauren Flanigan stars as an ambitious psychic who orchestrates an elaborate kidnapping scheme so that her "vision" can ensure a successful recovery, a generous ransom, and the fame she so desperately craves.

In tribute to Schwartz and his accomplishments, Broadway favorites took to the stage last night, April 21, to dedicate a special concert to the music man.  BroadwayWorld brings you photo coverage of Kristin Chenoweth, Raul Esparza, Victor Garber and more in performance below.
