About the Concert

Rufus Wainwright teamed up with Grammy and Tony-winning music director Stephen Oremus to redefine dozens of the most beloved gems in the Great American Songbook, all love songs from Broadway musicals. Wainwright's recontextualizations, performed exclusively by men and to men, fortify the songs' universality as expressions of love.

The show featured David Byrne, Brent Carver, Boy George, Josh Groban, Brennan Hall, Ezra Koenig, Steven Page, and Rufus Wainwright.

If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway redefines dozens of the most beloved love duets in the Great American Songbook, performed exclusively by men and to men. Drawing on a century of stage hits and featuring a full Broadway orchestra, this groundbreaking evening will showcase Wainwright and an international spectrum of pop, jazz and musical theatre stars in unexpected, entirely enchanting pairs singing about the universality of love.

If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway was performed on Saturday, June 14 for one night only at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.
