The concert is directed and produced by Robert W. Schneider, co-host of the podcast Behind the Curtain: Broadway's Living Legends. Schneider and Feinstein's/54 Below Programming Director, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, will co-host the evening, introducing performances and anecdotes from some of the show's original cast and creators.
The second edition of Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway will feature songs from such lost musicals as A Mother's Kisses, Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge, The Great Ostrovsky, Gone With The Wind, Harmony, Lolita, My Love, Lone Star Love, The Nutty Professor, Say Hello To Harvey, The Prince of Grand Street, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and more.
