The Town Hall’s critically acclaimed series Broadway by the Year has blossomed from a simple idea to what Show Business Weekly deems, ” … an invaluable and entertaining jewel in the cabaret crown of New York.” Ticket sales have soared and stellar reviews have included The New York Times, which calls it, “Witty, breezily paced … informative … valuable … the right perspective of lighthearted nostalgia … a reasonably priced alternative to City Center’s Encore Series.”
Author/critic SCOTT SIEGEL created the series for The Town Hall, which he writes and hosts. Siegel takes audiences of all ages on a musical tour of the Great White Way, offering an entertaining verbal account of Broadway’s history. Each evening celebrates the songs from Broadway shows of a selected year, sung by a cast of talented cabaret and Broadway performers. This marvelous program not only highlights favorite show-stopping numbers, it also features lesser-known gems.
Broadway by the Year’s fifteenth season will bring 100 years of Broadway history in four incredible evenings. Each show will cover a quarter of a century of Broadway tunes from shows including A Chorus Line, Annie Get Your Gun, Babes in Arms, Brigadoon, Cabaret, Candide, Dreamgirls, Follies, Funny Girl, Girl Crazy, Gypsy, Guys & Dolls, Into the Woods, La Cage Aux Folles, Lady Be Good, Kiss Me Kate, and more! Siegel will be joined on stage by Tony Nominees and Winners in addition to surprise special guest stars throughout the season.
