The weekend of concerts will kick off Oct. 16 with A Tribute to David Merrick. The 8 PM concert will boast the talents of Emily Skinner, Robert Cuccioli, Stephen Bogardus, Lee Roy Reams and Jim Caruso. The evening will celebrate fabled showman Merrick, whose six-decade career gave Broadway the original productions of Gypsy; Oliver!; Hello, Dolly!; 42nd Street; Mack & Mabel; and I Do! I Do! Linda Eder will take centerstage Oct. 17 at 8 PM with her newest concert act, All of Me. The singing actress will be backed by a seven-piece orchestra led by Billy Stein with Dave Mann on saxophone and Dave Finck on upright and electric bass. In addition to new arrangements, expect such signature songs as "Vienna" and "Someone Like You."
The series will conclude Oct. 18 at 3 PM with Broadway Originals. Nearly 20 artists — including Alexander Gemignani, Julia Murney, Kerry O'Malley and Sharon McNight — will come together to revisit the songs that they made famous on the Broadway stage.
