BENJAMIN EAKELEY: BROADWAY SWINGER, MAY 9 AT 7PM:
Broadway Swinger celebrates the classic songs that hit the American stage in the 1960s, a decade that started out buttoned-up but soon tossed aside all inhibitions. Broadway musicals paralleled America's shifting attitudes toward love and sex as Oliver! (1963) gave way to Sweet Charity (1966) and to Hair (1968). Benjamin Eakeley (She Loves Me, Cabaret) and his groovy band perform iconic songs from this fabulous era in a swingin' show that explores life, love and everything in between.

Set to the rhythm of the disco era and beyond, this earnest yet uproarious musical finds Randall in the moments before he goes on Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show.
