Michael Longoria Comes to the Green Room 42

Michael Longoria is among the stars set to reopen The Green Room 42, one of New York City's top cabaret venues, after more than a year without live indoor entertainment. Longoria will pay tribute to Broadway with the debut of "Broadway Heartbeat", an all new cabaret, on Saturday, April 10 at 7:00pm at The Green Room 42 in New York City. The event is touted as an evening featuring songs from Broadway's treasure trove with Longoria singing new life into Broadway gems from Chess, Dear Evan Hansen, Funny Girl, Jagged Little Pill, Jersey Boys, Les Misérables, Moulin Rouge, The Prom and more.

"It's been over a year since performing for a crowd of real New Yorkers. We've all been through so much in the last year and one of the ways I've coped has been through song. Broadway songs have the power to heal and give voice to issues that are universally human. They can bring empathy and understanding to the listener by elevating a story in musical flight with a beautiful melody and a crushing tale of the human experience. The Broadway community has been hit hard by the pandemic and I'm thrilled to be a part of the first wave of artists bringing live music back to New York City." -Michael Longoria
