Broadway Musicals of 1946, Marilyn Maye, Ben Davis
The Town Hall (123 West 43 Street) has signed Award-winning Jazz singer Marilyn Maye, Tony Award winner, Ben Davis (Baz Luhrmann's La Boheme), Dameka Hayes, Audelco Award Nominee for It Ain't Nothing But The Blues and Jessie Mueller, who made her Broadway debut in On a Clear Day…, to perform in THE BROADWAY MUSICALS OF 1946 on Monday, February 13, 2012 at 8pm.
This concert marks opener of the 12th season of The Town Hall's acclaimed Broadway By The Year® series, which is created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel for The Town Hall.
The previously announced cast includes Alice Ripley, the Tony® Award winning star of Next to Normal, Tom Wopat (Tony® Award nominated for his role of Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun revival, Catch Me if You Can), and Noah Racey (Curtains), who will also choreograph. The evening will feature song and dance from Irving Berlin's classic Annie Get Your Gun and other musicals including Call Me Mister, St. Louis Woman and Beggar's Holiday. The cast will be performing favorites which include "I Got Lost in His Arms," Come Rain or Shine," "A Woman's Prerogative," "Any Place I Hang My Hat is Home," and "I Want to Go to City College." Ross Patterson is the musical director.
Broadway By The Year ® takes the audience on a musical journey through the best of the Great White Way, featuring show-stopping numbers as well as lesser-known gems and little known facts and humor about our favorite shows. This season's shows will also include the Broadway Musicals of 1950, 1975 and 1987.
"One of the reasons for the longevity of Broadway by the Year® is the depth of commitment to the series that so many Broadway stars have made," said Scott Siegel. "In addition our audience is passionate about its love for show music and they represent the link between Broadway past and present, loving the old music while warmly embracing our current stars. That unique combination of passions has resulted in a Broadway music series entering its twelfth season not simply as four one-night only concerts, but rather as four one night only events!"
Over the years Broadway By The Year® has featured the following performers: Sutton Foster, Norm Lewis, Emily Skinner, Brian d'Arcy James, Gregg Edelman, Carolee Carmello, Corbin Bleu, Robert Cuccioli, Linda Eder, Marc Kudisch, Bryan Batt, Stephanie J. Block, Beth Leavel, Alexander Gemignani, Robert Goulet, Christiane Noll, Daniel Reichard, Karen Ziemba, Bobby Steggert, Barbara Walsh, Douglas Sills, Martin Vidnovic, William Michaels, Liz Callaway, Lari White, Jeffry Denman and Christine Andreas among others.
