Broadway Unplugged, the critically acclaimed concert with "Sound Design by God" returned to Town Hall for its record-breaking 14th season last night, July 25. The concert starred Tony Award Winner Chuck Cooper, 2X Tony Nominee Tom Wopat, Olivier Nominee Kyle Scatliffe, 2X Drama Desk Nominee Alix Korey, Drama Desk Nominee Ryan Silverman, downtown diva Molly Pope, and many more award-winning stars.

Scott Siegel, the creator/writer/director and host of Broadway Unplugged, has long been a champion of Broadway show tunes sung without amplification (as they were during the golden years of the Broadway musical). It was fifteen years ago when he first asked a performer to sing unplugged in the series he created for Town Hall,Broadway by the Year. The extraordinary and thunderous applause that performance received, emboldened him to create Broadway Unplugged soon thereafter, and the applause has not stopped yet.

Nor has the desire of today's performers to show that they have same vocal chops as the stars of yesteryear. Among the stars who have preformed "unplugged" for Siegel at Town Hall includeSutton Foster, Marc Kudisch, Cheyenne Jackson, Howard McGillin, Michael Cerveris, Stephanie J. Block, Beth Leavel, Ashley Brown, Alice Ripley, Emily Skinner, etc. And the tradition continues this year with the stars mentioned above, as well asJeannette Bayardelle (Celie in the original production of The Color Purple), William Michals (Emile deBeque in the Lincoln Center production of South Pacific), Brian Charles Rooney (The Three-Penny Opera), and more!
