The 9:30 PM concert follows multiple, sold-out engagements at 54 Below.
Directed by Max Friedman, Big Band will feature guest vocalists Breaker (Passing Strange, Shrek: The Musical), Matt Doyle (Spring Awakening, The Book of Mormon), Osnes (Cinderella, South Pacific), Margo Seibert (Rocky), Ben Fankhauser (Newsies) and Julia Mattison (Godspell) with a special appearance by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County, Parade) showcasing a selection from his upcoming Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas.
Doyle makes his Big Band debut, and Jacob Porter produces.
Here's how the evening is billed: "Join Broadway bandleader Charlie Rosen (One Man, Two Guvnors) for an evening that puts both modern and classic show tunes on display, sung by the best and brightest of Broadway's young generation of leading performers, in the timeless tradition of Big Band. A full sized Jazz orchestra composed of 17 musicians play Rosen's re-imagined arrangements of an eclectic mix of tunes from Broadway's past, present, and beyond!"
Rosen previously composed the score for the Roundabout Theater Company's Cyrano de Bergerac and served as musical director and bassist for the onstage band in One Man, Two Guvnors on Broadway. His other Broadway credits include Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and 13. With Friedman, he co-created the original Sondheim jazz revue The Bluest Ink. His debut EP, "Monet Sabel & The Charlie Rosen Big Band," is now available on iTunes. A single version of Broadway Big Band favorite, Rosen's arrangement of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" (featuring Hannah Elless, Monet Julia Sabel and Alysha Umphress), is available as a free download on SoundCloud.
