“As we look to our second year of supplementing our mainstage productions with our In the Spotlight cabaret series, we are so excited about our all-star lineup,” said Jim Jimirro.  “And they will be handed the most wonderful material, from Styne, Camden and Green, to sing."

The mission of the In The Spotlight cabaret series is to celebrate the songwriters whose works are being produced in The J2 Spotlight Musical Theater Company's season with all-star Broadway talent. 

The 2024 season, running April 19 through May 12, 2024 at AMT (354 West 54th Street - between 8th and 9th Avenues), will include Do Re Mi by Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Jule Styne, as well as Lucky Stiff by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
