Kara Lindsay, Nic Rouleau, Jill Paice, and More Join BROADWAY BOUND Part 2 at Feinstein's/54 Below
After an acclaimed debut in March of this year, Feinstein's/54 Below will be presenting the second edition of Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway on Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 (7:00pm & 9:30 pm) at Feinstein's/54 Below. The concert is directed and produced by Robert W. Schneider, host of the podcast Behind the Curtain: Broadway's Living Legends. Schneider and Feinstein's/54 Below Programming Director, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, will co-host the evening, introducing performances and anecdotes from some of the show's original cast and creators.
Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway celebrates musicals that were slated to appear on the Great White Way but never arrived. Whether it was due to lack of funding, temperamental creatives, or just being a victim of time, these musicals will be dusted off and their songs brought to their first New York audience.
Schneider said "We were so encouraged by the enthusiastic response from our first Broadway Bound concert that we decided to do a second one. What makes this concert really unique is that the 7 pm show will be totally different from the 9:30 pm show. Different songs, different stories, different performers. In total, we will be introducing twenty Broadway-bound musicals to New York audiences."
Performers scheduled to appear at the 7pm include Loni Ackerman (Cats), KLea Blackhurst (Everything the Traffic Will Allow), Todd Buonopane (Cinderella), Rita Gardner (The Wedding Singer), Kara Lindsay (Wicked), Carolyn Mignini (Tintypes), Jill Paice (Curtains), and Kevin Zak (Clinton: The Musical). More performers will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Performers scheduled to appear at the 9:30pm include Will Blum (The Book Of Mormon), Todd Buonopane (Cinderella), Mary Callanan (Bandstand), Amanda Green (Hands on a Hard Body), Michael Hajjar (Michael Hajjar and Friends) Nic Rouleau (The Book of Mormon), George Salazar (The Lighting Thief), Neva Small (Henry, Sweet, Henry), Rebecca Spigelman (Hairspray), Kevin David Thomas (Les Miserables), and Jim Walton (Merrily We Roll Along). More performers will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
The second edition of Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway will feature songs from such lost musicals as A Mother's Kisses, Annie 2, The Great Ostrovsky, Gone With The Wind, Harmony, Lolita, My Love, Lone Star Love, The Nutty Professor, Say Hello To Harvey, The Prince of Grand Street, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and more.
