Jackson & McElroy Join Broadway Unplugged, Sept. 19

Yet more luster has been added to the cast of the second Broadway Unplugged concert, which will be performed at Town Hall on September 19th; Cheyenne Jackson (All Shook Up) and Michael McElroy (Big River) have come onboard to let their voices shine without the aid of mics.

Jackson and McElroy join the previously-announced Ron Bohmer (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Chuck Cooper (Caroline, or Change), Mary Bond Davis (Hairspray), George Dvorsky (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Bill Daugherty (many shows at the Paper Mill Playhouse), Rob Evan (Little Shop of Horrors), Sutton Foster (Little Women), Debbie Gravitte (Jerome Robbins' Broadway), Eddie Korbich (Wicked), Marc Kudisch (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) Norm Lewis (Side Show), Rebecca Luker (The Music Man), William Michals (Beauty and the Beast), Julia Murney ( Lennon), Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde), Alice Playten (Caroline, or Change), Brad Oscar (The Producers), Emily Skinner (Side Show) and Mary Testa (Chicago) in the show.

Scott Siegel (the Broadway by the Year concerts) will produce, write and host the evening; he conceived the idea for the Broadway Unplugged concerts, which feature Broadway stars without any kind of amplification. "The excitement surrounding last year's concert simply demanded that we do it again. I'm thrilled and humbled by the response of the Broadway community of stars because so many of them agreed to sing in this concert with so much enthusiasm," he stated. Unlike Broadway by the Year, however, Broadway Unplugged will "highlight music from across the entire history of musical theatre." Held on Sept. 27, 2004, the first Broadway Unplugged featured Stephanie J. Block, Debbie Gravitte and Alice Ripley, and did sell-out business.

Tickets are currently available at $60, $40 and $25 through Ticketmaster at 212-310-4100 or via mail order by calling 212-365-4345 or emailing siegelentertainment@msn.com. The Town Hall box office doesn't open until September.
