Colm Wilkinson, Tony-nominee for Les Miserables and a favorite of stage audiences in Britain, Canada and the U.S., gave a concert in New York Dec. 9 with Patti LuPone. The concert was recorded and reportedly is planned for broadcast on PBS in spring 1997.

A PBS spokesman said no date has yet been set.

According to Playbill On-Line member Michael Chayne, who attended the concert at the Manhattan Center, Wilkinson opened with "Oh What a Circus" from Evita backed by four singers and a full orchestra. Other highlights:
* "Music of the Night" from Phantom
* "This Is the Moment" from Jekyll & Hyde
* "Mack the Knife" from The Threepenny Opera
* "My Way" from What Makes Sammy Run
* Some Irish folk songs, and, of course . . .
* "Bring Him Home" from Les Miz

LuPone sang much of the second act of her recent Broadway concert, including:
* "Meadowlark" from The Baker's Wife
* "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables
* "As Long as He Needs Me" from Oliver!

Chayne wrote "Throughout the night, Colm's voice was flawless. Not one moment was retaped. It was a very special event."
