Tony Award nominee Martin Vidnovic (Brigadoon), Stephen DeRosa (Into the Woods, Hairspray), Tony Award nominee Cheryl Freeman (The Who's Tommy), Darius de Haas (Rent), KendRick Jones (Stairway to Paradise) and special guest star Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh (Irena's Vow, Golda's Balcony) will join the cast of Broadway Musicals of 1970 on Monday, June 15th at 8PM. Concluding its ninth season with this concert, the critically acclaimed Broadway By The Year® series is known for great singing and spectacular Broadway dancing. The series is created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel for The Town Hall.

Broadway Musicals of 1970 will be directed and choreographed by Astaire Award nominee Jeffry Denman (Irving Berlin's White Christmas). As previously announced, he will also star in the show alongside Max von Essen (Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar), Tony Award nominee Melissa Errico (My Fair Lady, Amour), Sahr Ngaujah (Fela!), Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde) and Nightlife and MAC Award winner Scott Coulter. "All My Children's" Meredith Patterson, Mr. Denman's White Christmas co-star will also perform. Musical direction is by Ross Patterson.

"As promised, this is going to be a very special concert to close our ninth season," said series creator Scott Siegel. "Adding such great stars to our show, like four-time Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh, two-time Tony nominee Martin Vidnovic, Tony nominee Cheryl Freeman, Obie winner Darius de Haas, and two talents who have won the hearts of Broadway By The Year audience, Stephen DeRosa and KendRick Jones, only adds to the luster of our already exciting cast. We also promise more surprises with some additional special guests Monday night."

Variety calls the Broadway By The Year ® concerts "a proverbial hot ticket." This edition of the critically acclaimed series will include such famous shows as Company, Applause, Purlie, Two by Two, Minnie's Boys, The Rothschilds The Me Nobody Knows, and more.

Built in 1921 by a group of suffragettes, The Town Hall began as a lecture hall and public forum for debates. Over the past two and a half decades (Larry Zucker, Artistic and Executive Director) Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Billie Holiday, Igor Stravinsky, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis have graced the stage. Today the hall flourishes as a popular, affordable venue, boasting the hottest acts in rock, pop, folk, cabaret, world music, comedy and dance, including Billy Joel, Blondie, Elvis Costello, Natalie Merchant, Graham Nash, Liza Minnelli, Cyndi Lauper, Norah Jones, Andre Watts, Henry Rollins, Joe Jackson, Pink Martini, Regina Spector, Brian Adams, Aimee Mann and Dawn Upshaw. For over a decade, The Town Hall has hosted live broadcasts of Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion. Over the past two-and-a-half decades, The Town Hall has produced a number of new and critically acclaimed musical series, which include The Century of Change, Not Just Jazz, Broadway by the Year® and The Broadway Cabaret Festival.

Scott Siegel has created three acclaimed and popular series for The Town Hall: Broadway By The Year®, now in its ninth season, the Broadway Cabaret Festival and the Broadway Summer Festival. Mr. Siegel also conceived and produces both Broadway Unplugged and The Nightlife Awards at The Town Hall. Scott and his wife, Barbara, are authors (47 books, including The Encyclopedia of Hollywood) and critics ("The Siegel Column" and "The Two of Clubs" on Talkin' Broadway).
