The evening, which will also celebrate the 90th anniversary of Town Hall, will feature music that was performed on Broadway the same year Town Hall opened its doors. Performers are scheduled to include the previously reported Kendrick Jones (recently seen in The Scottsboro Boys on Broadway), Bobby Steggert (Tony-nominated for his performance in Ragtime), and Jeffry Denman, who returns after directing, choreographing and starring in last summer's "All Singin' All Dancin'."
Newly announced for the evening are Erin Davie (A Little Night Music), Stephen Mo Hanan (Cats), Kevin Earley (Thoroughly Modern Millie), Liz Lark-Brown (2011 Nightlife Award winner), Tony nominee Kate Baldwin (Finian's Rainbow) and Erin Denman (42nd Street). (Christiane Noll, who was scheduled to be part of the concert, has withdrawn due to a scheduling conflict.)
The evening will also feature ten "Siegfeld” Follies Girls, who will help re-create the look and style of a Broadway that existed 90 years ago.
Audiences can expect to hear such tunes as “I'm Just Wild About Harry” by Eubie Blake, “Say It With Music” by Irving Berlin, and the Al Jolson hits “April Showers,” “Toot Toot Tootise,” “California, Here I Come” and more.
“Every year we try to do something we’ve never done before, making the series bigger and more surprising at every turn,” Siegel said in a statement. “With 1921, when Broadway was flourishing with shows like The Follies, The Scandals, etc. we’re going to recreate that saucy era with our own bevy of tall, leggy showgirls – except our “SiegFeld Girls” will be among the most talented of all our Broadway Gypsies. In a word, this show is going to be fun.” Upcoming concerts in the series will celebrate the Broadway musicals of 1932, 1982 and 1997.
