Directed by Brad Oscar with choreography by Jeffry Denman, the 8 PM concert will boast the talents of Oscar and Denman as well as Chip Zien, David Pittu, Tony Yazbeck, Kendrick Jones, Melinda Sullivan and Karen Akers. The evening will feature songs from musicals that opened during the 1931 Broadway season, including The Gang's All Here, The Band Wagon, The Cat and the Fiddle and Of Thee I Sing.

In a statement host-creator Siegel said, "There is particular resonance between 1931 and today because, just like Broadway audiences 78 years ago, we find ourselves in the grip of a Great Depression. The music, written by the likes of the Gershwins, Harold Arlen, and Rodgers & Hart, was a brilliant reflection of their time and a reminder to us today of how buoyant and resilient we have always been as a people. Our character, as a nation, was on display in that momentous year, and that's why you'll find great humor, and even greater humanity, in the Broadway Musicals of 1931."

Town Hall is located in Manhattan at 123 West 43rd Street. Tickets, priced $45 and $50, are available by calling (212) 307-4100 or by visiting www.ticketmaster.com.
