Jones, who plays Henry in the classic coming-of-age musical at the new Snapple Theater Center, will chat about his best-known work. Jones will be joined by Burke Moses, who will perform El Gallo's signature tune "Try to Remember." The cast of Off-Broadway's Shout! The Mod Musical will also be featured in the two-hour broadcast. Shout!, which plays the Julia Miles Theatre, is described as "a non-stop journey through the infectious and soulful pop anthems and ballads" associated with Petula Clark ("Downtown"), Dusty Springfield ("Son of a Preacher Man") and Lulu ("To Sir With Love"), among others.
The weekly program will also include segments about singer Jewel, violinist Joshua Bell, director-producer Sydney Pollack and novelist James Ellroy.
"Breakfast with the Arts" airs from 8-10 AM ET on A&E. Karina Huber hosts. Check local listings or visit www.aetv.com for more information.
