Russ Kaplan's BROADWAY JAZZ SESSION to Become Monthly Series at The Green Room 42
"Russ Kaplan's Broadway Jazz Session," a special concert which was first performed April 30, will be continuing as a monthly series.
The next show will be held at The Green Room 42 [570 10th Ave, New York, NY 10036] on Sunday, June 4 at 7:00 PM (doors are open at 5:30). Tickets are $20 and available at web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe.c/10171857. There is no food and drink minimum.
Composer Russ Kaplan has always had a love of both musical theater and cutting-edge jazz. His concert series brings together his two passions, as he and his eight-piece band offer innovative instrumental interpretations of tunes from the current Broadway season - from new (Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton) to classic (Chicago, Hello Dolly). The June 4 show will put special emphasis on this year's Tony Award nominees.
As a theater writer, Kaplan is the co-creator of Broadway's In Transit (Drama Desk, Outer Critics' Circle, Drama League and Lortel nominations), family musical Dear Albert Einstein (Off-Broadway Alliance Award nominee) and play-with-music High School Confidential, among other works. His debut jazz album The Ulysses Cycle was released on Ropeadope Records and includes the Independent Music Award-winning track "Pigz in Space?." The band was a finalist in WNYC's 2015 Battle of the Boroughs.
