Foster, Kudisch, Lewis, Luker, Murney, Skinner and More Set to Go Unplugged

News   Foster, Kudisch, Lewis, Luker, Murney, Skinner and More Set to Go Unplugged The 2nd annual Broadway Unplugged concert will be held Sept. 19 at Town Hall.

Conceived, produced, written and hosted by cabaret critic Scott Siegel, the 8 PM concert at Town Hall will feature a host of Broadway favorites performing without amplification. Among those scheduled to take part in the microphone-free evening are Christine Andreas, Ron Bohmer, Chuck Cooper, George Dvorsky, Sutton Foster, Debbie Gravitte, Marc Kudisch, Norm Lewis, Rebecca Luker, Julia Murney, Christiane Noll, Brad Oscar, Emily Skinner and Mary Testa. Additional performers are expected to join the star-studded line-up. About the first Broadway Unplugged evening, producer Siegel said in a statement, "Last year was a revelation. I had no idea if there were enough people interested in the idea to fill Town Hall. Selling it well in advance of the concert just stunned me. It even sold out before the New York Times Arts & Leisure feature piece was published. We were turning people away. Not even in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that much interest. I'm humbled to say that the Broadway community of performers was in my corner from the start. Last year's cast was amazing. This year's cast will be equally as star-studded, if not more so."

Town Hall is located in Manhattan at 123 West 43rd Street. Tickets, ranging from $25-$60, are available by calling (212) 307-4100 or by e-mailing siegelentertainment@msn.com. (A post-show cast party, including buffet supper and beverages, is available for $50 per person.)
