Lanier will be featured in They Had It Coming: The Music of Kander and Ebb July 8-10 at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA. The Gay Men's Chorus will be led by artistic director Dr. Bruce Mayhall; show time is 8 PM.
In a statement Mayhall said, "What a wonderful way to close one of the most artistically creative and successful seasons in our history. We are overjoyed to present an evening of music that honors John Kander and Fred Ebb and I think our subscribers and audiences are going to be dazzled by the range of their work and their brilliant musicianship. It was almost impossible to select this concert as there were so many of their songs that would have been perfect for us to perform, but we think we have a program that is going to delight and entertain those who love John and Fred’s work and those that might not be as familiar."
For the theatre, John Kander and the late Fred Ebb wrote the scores for Flora, the Red Menace; Cabaret; The Happy Time; Zorba; 70, Girls, 70; Chicago; The Act; Woman of the Year; The Rink; And the World Goes 'Round; Kiss of the Spider Woman and Steel Pier.
