News   James Snyder and Wesley Taylor Will Offer Sneak Peek of Nerds at Celebrity Karaoke, Featuring #MyDreamDuet Winners James Snyder, Rob Morrison and Wesley Taylor have joined the lineup for Celebrity Karaoke: An Epic Evening with the Stars — in which theatregoers are given a chance to sing alongside Broadway stars — Oct. 6 at New York City's Hard Rock Café in Times Square.

Snyder (If/Then), Morrison (Avenue Q) and Taylor ("Smash") will preview songs from Nerds, the new Broadway-aimed musical about tech giants Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

As previously announced, Clear Channel Spectacolor, a brand division of Clear Channel Outdoor (CCO), in partnership with New York Super Week, New York Comic Con and Playbill, will host Celebrity Karaoke.

Hosted and co-produced by Justin Guarini ("American Idol," Wicked), the event gives Comic Con attendees and Broadway fans the chance to perform with a live karaoke band and have a front-row seat to live performances by Guarini, Tony Award winners Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin) and Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables).

Winners from the #MyDreamDuet contest, in which hopefuls were asked to record a performance of themselves singing a song from the show in which their possible duet partner stars in, are David LaMarr (who will sing with Hall), Madigan Lounsbery (who will sing with Karimloo), Adara Bryan (who will sing with Iglehart) and Matt Case (who will sing with Guarini). 

"Clear Channel Spectacolor is proud to be partnering with New York Comic Con, Super Week, and Playbill to offer these advertising partners a memorable way to connect with their consumers," said Harry Coghlan, president of Clear Channel Outdoor, New York, in an earlier statement. "Celebrity Karaoke is a uniquely New York entertainment experience for Comic Con attendees that gives theatre fans the opportunity to perform alongside Broadway's superhero talent." Performances at the concert will be judged by two-time Tony Award-winning producer Darren Bagert (Side Show, Of Mice and Men), Tony-nominated theatre and film producer Carl Levin (Rock of Ages) and Playbill editor-in-chief Blake Ross.

The event will include red carpet arrivals at 5:30 PM, followed by the live show from 7-10 PM. Tickets can be purchased through TicketWeb by clicking here.
