The one-night-only event will be held Feb. 27 at Dodger Stages and will feature highlights from the 2005 NYMF Festival, which premiered dozens of new musicals. Those scheduled to perform at the 7 PM concert include Euan Morton, Kerry Butler, Sherrie Austin, Deven May, Jeffry Denman and Curtis Holbrook as well as the casts of Altar Boyz and Title of Show.

Joe Calarco will direct.

About the upcoming evening NYMF Founder and Executive Director Kris Stewart said in a statement, "We've seen such amazing growth happen in our first two years. What better way to celebrate our successes — and raise money for an even more wonderful year three — than by highlighting the writers and artists who have made up the NYMF community?”

Tickets for the Feb. 27 event are priced $150 and $200 and include a post-show party at Dodger Stages. The $200 ticket also includes a pre-show cocktail reception with some of the artists. Dodger Stages is located in Manhattan at 340 West 50th Street. Call (212) 352-3101 for reservations or visit www.nymf.org.
