Foster, Murney and More will Sing in Broadway Unplugged 2

A host of big-voiced stars will lend their unamplified instruments to the second annual Broadway Unplugged, which will be held at Town Hall (123 West 43rd Street) on September 19th.

Christine Andreas (Oklahoma!, The Scarlet Pimpernel), Ron Bohmer (Les Miserables, The Scarlet Pimpernel), Chuck Cooper (The Life, Caroline, or Change), George Dvorsky (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Passion), Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Little Women), Debbie Gravitte (Zorba, Jerome Robbins' Broadway), Marc Kudisch (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) Norm Lewis (Side Show, A New Brain), Rebecca Luker (Show Boat, The Music Man), Julia Murney (The Wild Party, Lennon), Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde, the Mambo Kings), Brad Oscar (Jekyll & Hyde, The Producers), Emily Skinner (Side Show, The Full Monty) and Mary Testa (A New Brain, Chicago) have all joined the line-up, with more stars to be announced.  Scott Siegel of Broadway by the Year will produce, write and host the evening; he conceived the idea for the concerts, which feature Broadway stars without any kind of mic.

"Last year was a revelation. I had no idea if there were enough people interested in the idea to fill Town Hall. Selling it well in advance of the concert just stunned me. It even sold out before the New York Times Arts & Leisure feature piece was published. We were turning people away. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that much interest. I'm humbled to say that the Broadway community of performers was in my corner from the start. Last year's cast was amazing. This year's cast will be equally as star-studded, if not more so," stated Siege
l.  Held on Sept. 27, 2004, the first Broadway Unplugged featured Stephanie J. Block, Debbie Gravitte and Alice Ripley, among others.

Tickets, which range from $25-$60, can be purchased by calling (212) 307-4100 or by e-mailing siegelentertainment@msn.com. A post-show cast party, including buffet supper and beverages, will also be available at $50 per person.
