Cheyenne Jackson, James Barbour, Stephanie J. Block et al. Set for 'Broadway by the Year' 10th Anniversary Season at The Town Hall

The Town Hall, New York's landmark concert venue will present the 10th Anniversary Season of the Broadway By The Year® series, created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel for The Town Hall.

Broadway By The Year® celebrates its 10th year by taking 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. The NY Times called the series "an event that is treasured by Broadway babies." This season's shows will include the Broadway musicals of 1927, 1948, 1966 and a special concert featuring songs from shows from 1990-2010.

"It is our intention to make this 10th Anniversary season as special and memorable as possible," said Siegel. "To that end, we are assembling casts for each of our four concerts that will make each one a must-see event for any and every fan of Broadway musicals. We have cast a combination of Broadway regulars, as well as the stars, who are currently carrying Broadway shows. For our final show for this season on June 14th, we will do something we've never done before: perform one song from one show for every single year of Broadway musicals from 1990 to 2010, highlighting 21 great show tunes.
