Stars from Broadway, Off-Broadway, and primetime TV are set to appear in "Four Scores and Seven Shows Ago...", a new musical revue by New York theater composer Daniel Lincoln, which premieres in concert at the Laurie Beechman Theater tonight, May 14 at 9:30pm as a benefit for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids.
The evening will include performances by Broadway's Brian Cali ("Master Class") and Michelle Dowdy ("Hairspray"), and television personalities Ryan Raftery ("Ugly Betty," "Law and Order:SVU," "Malcolm in the Middle"), and Sasha Weiss (ABC Primetime's "What Would You Do," "Jerry Springer, The Opera" at Carnegie Hall.) Also performing are Ricky Schroeder ("Naked Boys Singing"), Anne Frasier Thomas ("The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" - US & International Tours), Kyle Kleiboeker (Nat'l Tours: "Hairspray," "Rent"), MAC and BISTRO Award Winning singer and nightlife personality Brandon Cutrell, Jody Cole Wood, Brittany Marie Arnao, and Dimitri Joseph Moise.
"Four Scores and Seven Shows Ago..." will feature a wide range of new material from Lincoln's upcoming musical comedies "Bebe vonBreckenburg's Beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Bridal Boutique," "Miss Humanity" (lyrics co-written by Michael DiGaetano), "Calixte," as well as some of his stand-alone novelty numbers (even including some of the racier ones that earned him nightlife notoriety in New York's cabaret circuit.) At only an hour in length, this version of "Four Scores and Seven Shows Ago..." will feature essentially no dialogue or banter, and promises to be a non-stop ride of musical hilarity.
