The audience will be transported into a world of classical repertoire, experiencing some of the most famous and romantic pieces from composers such as Chopin, Brahms, and Rachmaninoff, ingeniously arranged to match Broadway standards with repertoire including Sondheim, Gershwin, and Berlin.

Chopin Meets Broadway is uplifting, emotional, and exciting for all! Throughout the show Peisha and Sergiu will also be telling entertaining stories that bring authentic theatre to the concert. The audience will be left wanting more! Special guests Katharine McPhee (Scorpion, Smash) and Holt McCallany (Mindhunter, Julie Wilson's son) are to perform duets with Peisha.

Peisha McPhee & Sergiu Tuhutiu in "Chopin Meets Broadway" plays Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on Saturday, March 18th, 2017.
