Broadway Musicals of 1931 on Monday, March 31st, and was presented by The Town Hall (Executive and Artistic Director Lawrence Zucker). Now in its ninth season, the critically acclaimed Broadway By The Year series is known for great singing and spectacular Broadway dancing. The series is created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel for The Town Hall. The fun after party was celebrated at Tony's DiNapoli, BroadwayWorld was there to join in on all the on-stage and off-stage fun!

Broadway Musicals of 1931 was directed by Tony Award nominee Brad Oscar (The Producers) and choreographed by Jeffry Denman (White Christmas). As previously announced, the two also starred in the show alongside Tony Yazbeck (Gypsy), David Pittu (Is He Dead, LoveMusik, What's That Smell), Chip Zien (Into the Woods), KendRick Jones (Stairway to Heaven), Melinda Sullivan (High School Musical), special guest star and Tony Award nominee Karen Akers (Nine, Grand Hotel) and Oscar Winner F. Murray Abraham!

This edition of the critically acclaimed series included such famous shows as The Gang's All Here, The Band Wagon, The Cat and the Fiddle, Of Thee I Sing and more.

Built in 1921 by a group of suffragettes, The Town Hall began as a lecture hall and public forum for debates. Over the decades, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Billie Holiday, Igor Stravinsky, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis have graced the stage.

Scott Siegel has created three acclaimed and popular series for The Town Hall: Broadway By the Year, now in its ninth season, the Broadway Cabaret Festival, and the Broadway Summer Festival. Mr. Siegel also conceived and produces both Broadway Unplugged and The Nightlife Awards at The Town Hall. Scott and his wife, Barbara, are authors (47 books, including The Encyclopedia of Hollywood) and critics ("The Siegel Column" and "The Two of Clubs" on Talkin' Broadway).
