About the Broadway By the Year series, producer-host Scott Siegel said in a statement, "We don't have a formula. Each concert is realized afresh and we shape it around the music. The songs tell us what the show should be." The series will continue May 2 with The Broadway Musicals of 1955, and The Broadway Musicals of 1962 will be offered June 13.
Town Hall is located in Manhattan at 123 West 43rd Street. Tickets are available at the box office or by calling (212) 307-4100.
