Broadway Musicals of 1970 was presented by The Town Hall (123 West 43rd Street) on Monday, June 15th at 8PM. Concluding its ninth season with this concert, 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 show was directed and choreographed by Fred Astaire Award nominee Jeffry Denman, who also performed in the show.

BroadwayWorld.com's cameras visited the cast backstage and followed them to the after party celebration at the popular theater district Italian eatery, Tony DiNapoli's. Tony DiNapoli's is located at 147 43rd Street.

Broadway Musicals of 1970 starred Tony Award nominee Melissa Errico (My Fair Lady, Amour), Sahr Ngaujah (Fela!), Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde), Nightlife and MAC Award winner Scott Coulter and Max von Essen (Les Miserables). "All My Children's" Meredith Patterson, Mr. Denman's White Christmas co-star will also perform.  Musical direction is by Ross Patterson.

Built in 1921 by a group of suffragettes, The Town Hall began as a lecture hall and public forum for debates. Over the past two and a half decades (Larry Zucker, Artistic and Executive Director) Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Billie Holiday, Igor Stravinsky, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis have graced the stage. Today the hall flourishes as a popular, affordable venue, boasting the hottest acts in rock, pop, folk, cabaret, world music, comedy and dance, including Billy Joel, Blondie, Elvis Costello, Natalie Merchant, Graham Nash, Liza Minnelli, Cyndi Lauper, Norah Jones, Andre Watts, Henry Rollins, Joe Jackson, Pink Martini, Regina Spector, Brian Adams, Aimee Mann and Dawn Upshaw. For over a decade, The Town Hall has hosted live broadcasts of Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion. Over the past two-and-a-half decades, The Town Hall has produced a number of new and critically acclaimed musical series, which include The Century of Change, Not Just Jazz, Broadway by the Year® and The Broadway Cabaret Festival.

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).

Broadway By The Year® is supported by Bank of America and the Edythe Kenner Foundation.
