STAGE TUBE: Adam Jacobs, Ali Ewoldt Rehearse for A HEART FULL OF LOVE Concert
Broadway stars Ali Ewoldt ("Les Miserables," "West Side Story") and Adam Jacobs ("Les Miserables," "The Lion King") rehearse with Filipino-American composer Fabian Obispo for their upcoming concert at The Town Hall, A HEART FULL OF LOVE, on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 8 p.m.
"I think concertgoers at The Town Hall will be surprised at some points -- pleasantly, hopefully. They will hear some things that are expected as well -- some really good Broadway duets and some really exciting mashups that our musical director, David Dabbon, has written. Between those and my foray into a 'new genre' (I don't want to give too much away!), it's going to be an exciting night," Jacobs told BroadwayWorld.com at a photo call.
"We also have new works [like those of Gregor and Carner], which are very exciting. With all that combined, it's like a melting pot. It's going to be just 90 minutes; it's going to fly really quickly. And it's very kid-friendly; people of all ages, types, weights, races should come and see the show!" he added.
Proceeds from the concert will go to the 3rd The Outstanding Filipino-Americans in New York (TOFA-NY) Awards, an annual award ceremony that recognizes exemplary Filipino-Americans in the New York Tri-State held in October; and to Mindoro Healthcare Consulting's current research to find a cure for multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.
