Created and hosted by Scott Siegel, the evening will feature tunes from the American musical theatre. Those performers currently scheduled to lend their unamplified voices to the 8 PM event include Sarah Uriarte Berry, Marc Kudisch, Aaron Lazar, Beth Leavel, Michael McElroy, Sarah Jane McMahon, William Michals, Paul Schoeffler, Emily Skinner and Martin Vidnovic. Additional stars will be announced shortly. In a previous statement about the Broadway Unplugged concerts, producer Siegel said, "Of all the concerts that I produce, this one seems the most ideally matched between performer and audience; both are hungry for the experience. The performers are excited to put their own talents on the line, while musical theatre audiences – sick to death of over-amplified productions – are thrilled to hear these great voices, singing great Broadway songs, the way they it used to be heard.”
