Broadway composer Jerome Moross will be celebrated at Joe's Pub one last time, on March 13. The musical tribute to Moross began on Feb. 28. Alice Ripley, Jenny Giering, Philip Chaffin, Jessica Molaskey and Richard Muenz will sing songs by the tunesmith.
Moross, who also wrote for film and television, is best known for penning the musical The Golden Apple, which won him a New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1954. The show features songs from that show, as well as Ballet Ballads, Gentlemen, Be Seated!, Underworld and the films "Forget Me Not" and "The Cardinal."
"Lazy Afternoon," from Apple, perhaps Moross' best-known tune, will be sung with Molaskey, with Muenz, Chaffin and Giering singing back- up. Ripley will sing "Windflowers" from the same musical, as well as "Some Day" and "I've Even Been in Love." The show, boasting 18 tunes, concludes with "Stay With Me," sung by the entire cast.
Tommy Krasker is the musical consultant of the event. Eric Stern serves at musical director.
Tickets are $20. Joe's Pub is located off the Public Theater, at Lafayette Street in Manhattan. For information, call (212) 239-6200.
