Stars In The Alley

Hosted by  HEDWIG’s Darren Chris “So good to be back on Broadway again (How To Succeed, 2012)                       

                                                By Jeanne Lieberman

It was SRO in the crowded Shubert Alley as lucky fans had a chance to see Broadway stars representing 26 musicals and plays showing off just what makes New York Theater great!  A versatile 12 piece band accompanied them no matter the style from Phantom’s classic Andrew Lloyd Webber to Hedwig’s punk rock.

It is always a rare pleasure and privilege to see these gifted performers “up close and personal” sans make up, costumes and in daylight!
