The series kicks off with the Schwartz tribute at 8 PM that will also include the previously announced Liz Callaway, Jason Graae and Lari White. Oct. 20 will feature An Evening with Betty Buckley. The Tony Award-winning actress, who has graced the Broadway stage in Sunset Boulevard, Triumph of Love, Cats, 1776, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Pippin, will make her solo Town Hall debut at 8 PM. Buckley will celebrate the release of her forthcoming recordings during the concert and will also offer tunes from an eclectic repertoire that spans the worlds of pop, rock, folk, blues, standards and musical theatre.
