Sutton Foster, who received a Tony nomination for her performance as Jo March, will host the 7 PM evening, which will also feature the talents of Jenny Powers (Meg March), Amy McAlexander (Amy) as well as Little Women standbys Anne Kanengeiser, Larissa Shukis and Andrew Varela. Produced by composer Scott Alan, the June 20 concert will feature musical direction by Barbara Anselmni. Concertgoers can expect to hear classic musical theatre tunes as well as works by up-n-coming composers, who will accompany the singers on piano.
The series, created to spotlight lesser-known talents working in the city, will continue with two other celebrations of this season's new musicals: On July 25 Cheyenne Jackson will host an evening featuring members of the All Shook Up cast, and on Aug. 19 Sara Gettelfinger will welcome members of the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels company.
