Hot Photos! First Look at the Starry THE SECRET GARDEN Concert at Lincoln Center!
Last night was the first of two nights of the 25th anniversary concert of The Secret Garden at Lincoln Center and by all reports the star-filled concert practically blew the roof off of the building. The concert performances of the TONY Award-winning musical featured a stunning Broadway and television cast, creative team, the New York City Chamber Orchestra, and a grand 200-voice chorus from across the United States. There's one more chance to see the show, tonight... but in the meantime - we've got photos below!
Appearing in the concerts are: Sierra Boggess (Lily), Nikki Renée Daniels (Rose Lennox), Quentin Earl Darrington (Major Holmes), Daisy Eagan (Martha), Julie Halston (Mrs. Winthrop), Cheyenne Jackson (Dr. Neville Craven), Jamie Jackson (Lieutenant Shaw), Ramin Karimloo (Archibald Craven), Telly Leung (Fakir), Sydney Lucas (Mary Lennox), Anisha Nagarajan (Ayah), Ben Platt (Dickon), John Riddlle (Lieutenant Wright), Barbara Rosenblat (Mrs. Medlock), Jere Shea (Ben Weatherstaff), Haley Swindal (Alice), Josh Tower (Major Shelley), Oscar Williams (Colin Craven), and Josh Young (Captain Albert Lennox).

The book and lyrics of the musical, based on the 1911 novel of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, are by Marsha Norman, with music by Lucy Simon. The Secret Garden is set in the early years of the 20th century and follows a young English girl named Mary Lennox who is born and raised in the British Raj, and orphaned by a cholera outbreak when she is eleven years old. She is sent away from India to Yorkshire, England to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle.
