Kelli Rabke, Darius de Haas, and Jessica Hendy to Headline THE WIZARD AND I at NJPAC
New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents an intimate evening of music written by the GRAMMY- and Oscar-winning composer-lyricist behind some of the biggest hits on Broadway (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden) and the big screen (Pocahontas, Enchanted).
Stephen Schwartz is a musical wizard who has enchanted generations of theater and movie lovers. This magical, musical evening in NJPAC's intimate Chase Room is devoted to his incredible career. The program will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Paper Mill Playhouse's production of Schwartz's Children of Eden and will also take a tour through his acclaimed songbook.
The evening's guest vocalists will include original Children of Eden stars Kelli Rabke and Darius de Haas, who will lead a cast of Broadway regulars (including Cats star Jessica Hendy) through Schwartz's legendary songbook, including famous numbers like "Defying Gravity," "Meadowlark, "Day by Day," and many more.
