Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway celebrates musicals that were slated to appear in New York City but never arrived. Whether it was due to lack of funding, temperamental creatives, or just being a victim of time, these musicals will be dusted off and their songs brought to their first Manhattan audience.
The concert is directed and produced by Robert W. Schneider, host of the podcast Behind the Curtain: Broadway’s Living Legends. Schneider and host of the podcast Backstage Babble, Charles Kirsch, will co-host the evening, introducing performances and anecdotes from some of the show’s original cast and creators. Frederick Miller is the dramaturg and Michael Lavine is musical director.
The works of such artists as Cy Coleman, Barbara Fried, Carolyn Leigh, Johnny Mercer, Bob Merrill, Sandy Wilson, and more, will be featured. www.54Below.com
