In addition to Clarke (Wicked, Light in the Piazza), Doyle (Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie) and Johnson (Hair), the concert includes Alex Brightman (Wicked), Katie Gassert (Seussical), Celisse Henderson (Wicked, In Transit), Morgan Karr (Spring Awakening), Carrie Manolakos (Wicked, Mama Mia!), Lindsay Mendez (Everyday Rapture, Grease), Andrew Rannels (Jersey Boys, Hairspray), Pauline Pisano and Alex Goley.

Van Dyke is set to perform on piano alongside musicians Damien Bassman, David Fallo, Jim Hershman, Dave Kuhn, Phil Payton and Allison Seidner.

Featuring lyrics by Van Dyke and his collaborator Josh Halloway, "Chasing The Day" comprises "songs that were written on the road. Aboard planes. Across time zones. Between sets. In hotel lobbies. At 24 hour coffee shops. Miles apart. When the thought of home is your only companion. 'Chasing the Day' is about the places life takes us and the people who bring us back," according to the album liner notes.

For tickets, priced $15 in advance, phone (212) 505-3474, or visit LePoissonRouge. Le Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker Street.
