Broadway's Rising Stars will feature the talent of some of New York City's finest theatrical institutions, including AMDA, CAP 21, Juilliard, The New School and NYU.
Series creator and host, Scott Siegel, said in a statement, "Many great classical artists began their career with a Town Hall debut. In keeping with that spirit of discovery, The Town Hall and I are committed to Broadway's future and the idea of presenting talented newcomers to The Great White Way was irresistible. I'm pleased that we can give these future stars their New York debuts, while also providing our audience with a rich and rewarding night of entertainment."
