On Monday July 21st, Town Hall presented the latest in it's series of summer concerts, BROADWAY'S RISING STARS.

BROADWAY'S RISING STARS was co-directed by Tony Nominee Emily Skinner and Nightlife Award winning vocalist Scott Coulter. Designed to launch the careers of the next generation of Broadway stars, the show featured 20 of the most outstanding young talents from performing arts schools in New York and across the country. The future stars of the Great White Way were chosen during auditions throughout the spring and come from theatrical institutions including as AMDA, CAP21, Julliard, Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, Marymount and the New School. 
Siegel, who also created Broadway by the Year and the Broadway Cabaret Festival for Town Hall, said, "The level of talent that has signed on for these three summer concerts is a testament to Town Hall's top notch Broadway level entertainment. Some of the stars that have signed on are Broadway by the Year stalwarts like Marc Kudisch, Alexander Gemignani, and Jason Graae. Others are brand new to our shows, such as Michael Arden Alli Mauzey,Jennifer Hope Wills, and Carol Woods. We are thrilled to have them, just as our audiences will be thrilled to see them on The Town Hall stage."
