Lisa Howard, Karen Mason and More Set for BROADWAY BALLYHOO FESTIVAL, 7/17-21
FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY will continue its Summer 2012 season with a full week of Scott Siegel's BROADWAY BALLYHOO FESTIVAL. The popular and critically acclaimed fixture BROADWAY BALLYHOO, which has played the last eight months every Thursday night at 11:00 PM, will move to primetime at 8:00 PM for one week only from Tuesday, July 17 throughSaturday, July 21. In keeping with the Broadway Ballyhoo format, each show in its primetime run will feature an entirely different cast of stars and an entirely different set of show tunes. The performers featured on various nights will include Barbara Walsh(Tony Award nominee), Jack Noseworthy (Broadway and film star), Karen Mason (Wonderland, Sunset Blvd.), William Michals(South Pacific), Stephen DeRosa (Into The Woods), Lisa Howard (Spelling Bee, Drama Desk winner), Ben Davis (Tony Award honoree), Carole J. Bufford (award winning vocalist), Christiana Bianco (Drama Desk nominee), Scott Coulter (award wining vocalist) and many more.
Scott Siegel, the show's creator and host who has also been responsible for more than 100 major concerts at The Town Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center, said "the Broadway Ballyhoo has been playing to full houses every Thursday night at 11:00. We have happily found an audience of folks who want to hear great singers, singing great show tunes at the end of the evening. But this special Ballyhoo Festival gives us a chance to reach those people who like to hear this music but can't always stay up that late on a Thursday night. We wanted to give them a taste of what we offer every week. And, in fact, most of the people who will be performing in the Festival have also performed during the 11 PM shows on Thursdays. So this is the real deal. "
