Musicals Tonight's Concert/Lecture Series Announced for Spring 2005

Arts Hour @ 6 adds BMI, Midge Woolsey and Christine Pedi

Musicals Tonight's Arts Hour @ 6 has a new line-up for Spring 2005

The BMI/Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop in its 43-year history has fostered the work of such Broadway notables as Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, Ed Kleban, Michael John LaChuisa, Alan Menken, and Maury Yeston.  We are thrilled to add BMI to our series on Mondays.  These Musical Mondays will offer works by present Workshop members and graduates.

Classic Singing for Today – WQXR evening host, Midge Woolsey, New York City Opera and Broadway conductor Gerald Steichen, and guest artists discuss bringing musical theatre to the opera stage and bringing opera to the musical theatre stage – and just where does operetta belong?

Christine Pedi will present The Actors Life – a series featuring discussions and songs from actors in each of the following – La Cage; The Producers and Forbidden Broadway.

Filling out our schedule will be:

Bitch and Brag About Broadway – Newark Star-Ledger's Peter Filichia and Talkin' Broadway's Matthew Murray ask audience members to join them on stage for a spirited discussion about the best and worst of Broadway.

The Art of The News – Newsweek-on-Air's David Alpern will talk with husband-and-wife journalists – Pete Hamill and Fukiko Aoki; Dean Joan Konner and Al Permutter; Lynn Povich and Steve Shephard.
