Fogler, Brent Barrett, Mario Cantone, Michael Cerveris, Raul Esparza, Hunter Foster, Victor Garber, Chester Gregory II, Cheyenne Jackson, Marc Kudisch, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Christopher Sieber, Tom Wopat and country music singer Billy Currington are all scheduled to perform at the 8:30 PM concert, which will also include special appearances by Sweet Charity's Christina Applegate, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' Rachelle Rak and the Radio City Rockettes. Tony Award winner Scott Wittman — of Hairspray fame — will direct this year's event, which will celebrate the songs of the late Cy Coleman and Fred Ebb and will feature a 30-piece live orchestra conducted by Phil Reno. Concertgoers can expect to hear such tunes as "New York, New York," "Sara Lee," "Kiss of the Spider Woman," "There's a Sucker Born Ev'ry Minute," "Use What You Got," "You're Nothing Without Me" and "I Rise Again."
"This year's concert will be a uniquely sophisticated and elegant evening — a glamorous night in the park, against the beautiful backdrop of New York and the Public Library," director Wittman said in a statement. "It is also a great tribute to two New Yorkers — Cy Coleman and Fred Ebb — who embody everything that is wonderful about Broadway and the City."
CBS-2 in Manhattan will broadcast the concert on Saturday, June 18 at 7 PM ET. Dana Tyler will host the TV telecast.
"Broadway Under the Stars" is produced by the League of American Theatres and Producers and presented by Time Warner. Bryant Park is located in Manhattan between 40th and 42nd Streets, off Sixth Avenue.
