The evening will feature performances by Rob Evan (Jekyll and Hyde, The Prince and the Pauper), Luba Mason (The Capeman, Chicago), Rita Harvey (Phantom of the Opera, Fiddler on the Roof), Lawrence Clayton (Les Miserables, Dreamgirls) and William Michals (South Pacific, Beauty & the Beast), as well nightly special guests. All shows are at the Loews Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
Neil Berg is the composer and lyricist of the hit Off-Broadway musical The Prince and the Pauper, which ran for two years at the Lambs Theater. The New York Times raved "(Berg's) music soars on Angel's wings." Neil's next New York project is a special presentation of his new rock musical The Twelve at B.B. King Blues Club in August. Neil is currently the composer for the new Broadway-bound musical Grumpy Old Men, based on the Warner Brothers movie classic.
Neil's latest musical, The Man Who Would Be King, with book and lyrics by DJ Salisbury, had a developmental reading/workshop at The Village Theater in Issaquah, WA, directed by Tony Award winner Brian Yorkey (Next To Normal). Neil's musical Tim and Scrooge, with book and lyrics by Nick Meglin, was part of the inaugural NYMF festival, then garnered a rave review in the New York Times after it opened for an Equity run starring Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert at The Queens Theater in the Park.
Neil also composed the new musical Heidi, book by Julia Jordan and commissioned by Douglas Love and the Walden Family Theater. His musical Hexed in the City played Off- Broadway at The Zipper Theater. Neil was also the recipient of the 1995 Bistro Award for Best Musical for his show Asylum in the Night, a revue of Neil's theater music. Neil was also the composer/music supervisor on the feature film Searching For Bobby D. featuring Carmen Electra, Sandra Bernhard, and Mario Cantone, and is composer of the upcoming film Goat starring Armand Assante, Ice-T, and Ja Rule. Neil is the creator and co-producer of Neil Berg's "100 Years of Broadway," which is now the number one Broadway touring concert in the United States, playing in over 120 cities in 2010/2011.
