The 7:30 PM chat and performance is moderated by Tony Award-winning director Jack O'Brien, who collaborated with the songwriter on The Full Monty and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Benanti, who recently starred in Yazbek's Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and Wilson (a veteran of The Full Monty) are joined by Sean Altman, John Ellison Conlee and Mylinda Hull. Musicians include Marco Paguia, Brian Hamm and Dean Sharenow.

The evening promises to highlight Yazbek's work as a recording artist and his music for the stage.

A recording artist, vocalist and pianist, Yazbek was Tony Award-nominated for the musicals The Full Monty and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. His latest musical Women on the Verge, based on the Pedro Almodóvar film, was produced on Broadway by Lincoln Center Theater earlier this season. He has released five solo albums and earned an Emmy Award for his writing for "Late Night with David Letterman."
