THE GREATEST BROADWAY ANTHEMS OF ALL TIME!, AUGUST 19 AT 9:30PM
Here, on one stage, at one time, never before assembled together: The Greatest Broadway Anthems of All Time. These are the songs that stir the soul, that make the heart pound, that have driven audiences to their feet to give standing ovations. These show-stopping, as well as heart-stopping, songs when performed as they should be, can make you weep, make you cheer, they can even change the course of history. All of them, however, have one thing in common: they make you feel.
Our show will feature anthems that have become part of theater lore, like “What I Did For Love” from A Chorus Line; that have entered the mainstream of American popular culture, like “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from The Sound of Music; that are calls to action, such as “The Day After That” from Kiss of the Spider Woman; that are about the tide of history, like “Back to Before” from Ragtime, as well as “In My Own Lifetime” from The Rothschilds.

He is, perhaps, best known as the creator, writer, director and host of Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year, which will celebrate its 20th Anniversary Season in 2020.
