Created and hosted by Scott Siegel, the Nov. 19 concert will feature tunes from the American musical theatre. Newcomers to the evening include David Burnham, Bill Daugherty, Willy Falk, Lorinda Lisitza, Andrea McArdle, Barbara Walsh and Kristine Zbornik. Those performers who were already scheduled to lend their unamplified voices to the 8 PM event include 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 will direct the concert, which will feature musical direction by Ross Patterson.
In a 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."
