Photo Coverage: Tony Yazbeck Brings THE FLOOR ABOVE ME to Birdland

The Broadway at Birdland concert series presented Tony Yazbeck, the star of this season's On The Town revival in his Birdland solo debut on last night and BroadwayWorld was there. Yazbeck heated up the Birdland stage in The Floor Above Me, a thrilling evening of tenor melodies and tenacious tap dancing, and will be joined by On The Town co-star Clyde Alves and tap dance sensation Melinda Sullivan ("So You Think You Can Dance," "Glee"). Musical direction and arrangements will be by Jerome Korman, and the evening is co-written and co-directed by Howard Emanuel & Tony Yazbeck. Jerome Korman/piano, Thomas Hubbard/bass, Tony Lewis/drums, Mark McGowan/trumpet.

Songs included in The Floor Above Me will be "Pure Imagination," "Cheek To Cheek," "Both Sides Now," and "Lucky To Be Me." Tony's Broadway credits also include Billy Flynn in Chicago, Phil Davis in White Christmas, Tulsa in Gypsy (w/Patti LuPone), and Al in the revival of A Chorus Line.
