Tony Yazbeck & Janet Metz Join Kudisch, Skinner, Reichard & More for 'Broadway Unplugged' at Town Hall, 11/16
More stars have been added to The Sixth Annual Broadway Unplugged concert at The Town Hall on Monday, November 16th at 8 PM. In addition to the previously announced Marc Kudisch, Emily Skinner, Daniel Reichard, Manu Narayan, Jill Paice, Jeffry Denman, William Michals, Lisa Howard, Bill Daugherty, and Sarah Jane McMahon, the cast of this unique concert that features the entire cast singing without microphones (the way it used to be done on Broadway) now also includes opera star John Easterlin, who won two Grammy Awards this year, as well as Nightlife Award winner David Colbert, and Broadway stars Tony Yazbeck and Janet Metz. The show's producer/writer/host, Scott Siegel has revealed that more star announcements are forthcoming.
Broadway Unplugged is the experiement that began six years ago with a concert featuring great singers, singing great songs, but without microphones in a 1,500 seat theater. Since it's inception, the event has blossomed into a annual celebration. The concert is attended every year by musical theater lovers who crave the sound of the pure human voice and the opportunity to hear great Broadway music the way it was originally performed, with nothing between the singer and the audience except the truth.
Scott Siegel, the creator/writer/host of Broadway Unplugged said, in a statement, "Despite the treacherous economy, we are going ahead with a concert that has, over its short lifetime, become a musical theater tradition every Fall. We intend to put on a great show, with big stars, wonderful show tunes, and absolutely no electronic amplification. This is the concert where today's Broadway
stars show they've got the same kind of chops as the old timers did. I'm announcing only a modest number of stars now because I want to build toward November 16th with increasing anticipation for what I expect will be yet another exciting night full of musical theater fireworks. So, look for more names to come before the big night."
Tickets are $75 for the orchestra, $50 for the front balcony, and $25 for the rear balcony. Tickets may be purchased via TicketMaster at 212-307-4100 or at TicketMaster.com, as well as the Town Hall Box Office at 123 West 43rd St. between noon and 6 PM every day but Sunday.
