Rachel Bay Jones, Robert Creighton & More Set for Town Hall's Broadway by the Year Series, 6/20
Drama Desk Awards Nominees Rachel Bay Jones (Pippin, Hair, Broadway's upcoming Dear Evan Hanson), Robert Creighton (Cagney, Chicago) & Farah Alvin (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Grease, Saturday Night Fever), in addition to Noah Racey (Never Gonna Dance, Curtains, Thoroughly Modern Millie), Morgan Weed (American Psycho, Rent) & Maxine Linehan are set to star at Town Hall's Broadway by the Year Series on Monday, June 20 at 8pm, THE BROADWAY MUSICALS OF THE 1970s (this is the 16th year of the series).
This is the decade in which Stephen Sondheim truly came of age, changing the Broadway musical in new and exciting ways. The Public Theater became a force on Broadway with A Chorus Line, Kander & Ebb emerged as a brand new writing team with guts and style. And Broadway by the Year will represent all of that and more with yet another glittering all-star cast.
Created/written/directed/hosted by Scott Siegel, this is the last show of this year's series. Bank of America is proud to support Broadway by the Year with additional support provided by The Edythe Kenner Foundation.
The Town Hall is among New York City's most historic venues. Built in 1921 by a group of suffragettes, The Town Hall began as a lecture hall and public debate forum and grew to be a national landmark institution for arts, culture and education. Over the decades, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Billie Holiday, Igor Stravinsky, Marian Anderson, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis have graced the stage. It was home to the legendary radio program, America's Town Meeting of the Air, dozens of historic albums and recordings, and American debuts of musical legends. Today, the Hall boasts the very best in music performances, spoken word, comedy and dance, including speaking engagements with residents and senators, live broadcasts of Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion, and a number of new and critically acclaimed music series.
