Photo Coverage: Block, Kudisch and More Sing for BROADWAY UNPLUGGED
In what has become a Fall concert tradition in New York, some of the biggest and brightest Broadway stars of today, showed that they've got the same vocal chops as the stars of yesteryear when they blow the roof off of the 1,500 seat Town Hall without using microphones in the BROADWAY UNPLUGGED concert, November 15. Singing Broadway show tunes the way they used to be sung -- without any electronic amplification ("Unplugged") -- the audience hears the pure human voice the way one never hears it anymore in a Broadway theater. And it is thrilling! For those that are tired of today's constant over-amplification of Broadway musicals, this concert was both an eye and ear opener. BroadwayWorld was on hand and brings you photo coverage below.

Block (Drama Desk Nominee), Marc Kudisch (3 time Tony Nominee), James Barbour (Drama League Award Winner and Drama Desk Nominee), Euan Morton (Tony Nominee), Julia Murney (Drama Desk Nominee), Ron Raines (3 time Emmy Nominee), we also have Quentin Earl Darrington (Coalhouse Walker in recent acclaimed Broadway revival of Ragtime), Max Von Essen (Dance of the Vampire), William Michals (Emile De Beque in Lincoln Center production of South Pacific), Karen Mason (coming to Broadway again in the Spring in Wonderland), Bill Daugherty (of Daugherty & Fields fame), Jeffry Denman (Drama Desk Nominee), Erin Denman (42nd St.), Ron Bohmer (Drama Desk Nominee), and more!
