Brian d'Arcy James, Tonya Pinkins and More Set for THE BROADWAY MUSICALS OF 1937, 2/11
The Town Hall will present the first of four concerts of their acclaimed series BROADWAY BY THE YEAR on Monday, February 11th. The season begins with 1937, a year that witnessed the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, the sudden death of George Gershwin, the Hindenburg disaster and a world on the brink of war.
The 13th Season of Town Hall's signature series, Broadway by the Year, begins on Monday, February 11th at 8 PM with an all-star cast led by two-time Tony Nominee Brian d'Arcy James (Shrek), Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins (Caroline or Change), Drama Desk Nominee Kevin Earley (Death Takes a Holiday), Elizabeth Stanley (Million Dollar Quartet), and Nightlife Award Winner Carole J. Bufford. Among the classic Broadway shows that will be revisited from 1937 are Babes in Arms, Hooray For What?, and I'd Rather Be Right.
Broadway By The Year takes the audience on a musical journey through the best of the Great White Way, featuring show-stopping numbers as well as lesser- known gems and little known facts and humor about our favorite shows.
Since its inception thirteen years ago, Broadway by the Year, created, written, and hosted for Town Hall by author/critic Scott Siegel, has offered a total of 50 concerts that have celebrated the rich and varied history of The Great White Way. In a statement, Scott Siegel said, "Broadway by the Year has offered its stars the opportunity to sing the greatest songs in the history of American musical theater. We start this season with one of the finest casts in recent memory. Having such major stars as Brian d'Arcy James and Tonya Pinkins together with such bright stars as Elizabeth Stanley, Kevin Earley, and Carole J. Bufford will be a Broadway by the Year concert that will surely be remembered."
