Created and hosted by Scott Siegel, the concert features tunes from the American musical theatre. Those performers scheduled to lend their unamplified voices to the 8 PM event include David Burnham, Bill Daugherty, Willy Falk, Lorinda Lisitza, Andrea McArdle, Barbara Walsh, Kristine Zbornik, Sarah Uriarte Berry, Darius de Haas, Marc Kudisch, Aaron Lazar, Beth Leavel, Michael McElroy, Sarah Jane McMahon, William Michals, Paul Schoeffler, Emily Skinner, Martin Vidnovic and Max von Essen. Dan Foster directs the concert, which features musical direction by Ross Patterson.
In a recent statement producer Siegel said, "I've gone out of my way to bring new talent to this year's Broadway Unplugged. While keeping such founding stars like Marc Kudisch and Emily Skinner, I've added stars who have never been part of this evening before, like Michael McElroy, Aaron Lazar, Sarah Jane McMahon, Willy Falk and Max Von Essen. In the last two concerts the audience called back every single performer for a second bow. I have never seen anything like it. For my money – and it is my money -- Broadway Unplugged is, by far, the most exciting concert in New York City."
