"I'm so excited to be back at the Town Hall," said Seth Rudetsky. "I love working with Stokes whom I first met when I was a rehearsal pianist for Kiss Of The Spiderwoman and who not only is a fantastic singer but also a great humanitarian...and tap dancer! I'm super excited to do my first full-length show with Patina (who will hopefully bring her Tony Award so I can hold it) and I'm such a fan of both Jessie Mueller and Megan Hilty and I'm flipping out that I'm doing a concert with both of them at the same time!"
