The concert — produced by critic-author Scott Siegel — will present several Broadway favorites singing tunes without amplification. Among those scheduled to perform off-mic include Nancy Anderson, Christine Andreas, Stephanie J. Block, Michael Cerveris, Chuck Cooper, B.J. Crosby, Bill Daugherty, Darius de Haas, George Dvorsky, Davis Gaines, Debbie Gravitte, Ann Harada, Cady Huffman, Ludmilla Ilieva, A.J. Irvin, Eddie Korbich, Alix Korey, Marc Kudisch, Jeff McCarthy, Howard McGillin, Euan Morton, Julia Murney, Emily Skinner, Mary Testa, Tom Wopat and Karen Ziemba. Show time is 8 PM. Siegel, who also hosts and writes the acclaimed Broadway by the Year series, said in a statement, "We've been averaging about six songs off-mike during each Broadway by the Year concert and they invariably stop the show. Clearly, there is a hunger for this kind of heroic, unadorned performance, and not only does the audience clearly love to hear songs performed this way, the singers love doing it, as well. I don't expect Broadway to suddenly throw its microphones away, but I hope this concert will send the message that audiences want to hear a more natural sound."
