Jennifer Simard, Karen Ziemba, Debbie Gravitte and More Join New Kritzerland Concert

For the 108th Kritzerland show, it's a tribute to one of the most beloved songwriting teams in Broadway history, Kander and Ebb. The music and lyrics of John Kander and Fred Ebb have been delighting people since their Broadway debut, Flora, the Red Menace, which began their long association with Liza Minnelli. Featuring classic songs from Flora, The Happy Time, Cabaret, Chicago, Woman of the Year, Zorba, The Act, and more, the show features an absolutely amazing cast, including two Tony Award-winners, four Tony nominees, several of whom have a lot of history with Kander and Ebb, including original cast members from their shows. So, join Kritzerland and this incredible cast on August 9th on Facebook and YouTube Live, for an evening featuring some of the best musical theater songs ever written. Kritzerland is produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Doug Haverty, with the technical expertise of Hartley Powers.
