Photo Coverage: BROADWAY UNPLUGGED Brings the Roof Down at Town Hall

Postponed from last January when the fake blizzard closed New York City, Broadway Unplugged, the critically acclaimed annual concert returned last night, July 20, 2015. BroadwayWorld was there for the special night and you can check out photos below!

It's the show where today's stars sing great show tunes the way they used to be performed on Broadway: without a microphone! It's the pure human voice soaring to the rafters, showing an awestruck audience, once again, that they've got the same chops as the great stars of yesteryear. New York's critics have said every year that this is one of the most thrilling concerts they have ever witnessed. Broadway Unplugged always get sensational stars -- and this year is no exception.

The cast featured: Michael Cerveris (6X Tony Nominee with 2 Wins - including Fun Home), Stephanie J. Block (Tony Nominee), Carolee Carmello (3X Tony Nominee), Marc Kudisch (3X Tony Nominee), John Easterlin (4X Grammy Winner), Vivian Reed (2X Tony Nominee), Michael Cavenaugh (Broadway revival of West Side Story as Tony),Jenny Powers (Broadway Revival of Grease as Rizzo),William Michals (Lincoln Center revival of South Pacific as Emile de Beque), Christopher Johnstone (Carnegie Hall),Molly Pope ("The Downtown Diva"), Bill Daugherty (Every Single Broadway Unplugged!).
