Tony Winners Patina Miller, James Naughton Heading to Live From Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series
Coming this Spring, Live From Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series will present Tony Award winners Patina Miller and James Naughton.
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, Patina Miller is both a fresh new face and a performer at the very top of her game. Her first concert special features music ranging from classic R&B to Broadway's best.
A Tony winner for performances in "City of Angels" and "Chicago," James Naughton is an entertainer of breathtaking range. He stretches his sardonic "angel's wings" once again, taking on the repertoire of Randy Newman, whose songs have delighted and outraged audiences for decades.

Now in its 39th season on PBS, the pioneering series-produced by Lincoln Center Media Productions-has been seen by hundreds of millions of viewers since its debut and celebrated by 13 Emmy Awards and other honors for its broadcasting excellence.
