The evening celebrates the work of composer-lyricist Adam Gwon, who will accompany the performers on piano. Among those scheduled to perform are Demi Fragale, Jake Glassman and Molly Hager. Show time is 7 PM. Barbara Anselmi is the evening's musical director.

Block, Eden Espinosa, Cheyenne Jackson and Jonathan Groff, among others — is available by visiting www.scottalan.net. He is currently recording his second disc, "Keys: The Music of Scott Alan."

Adam Gwon is the composer/lyricist of Ordinary Days, Bernice Bobs Her Hair (with librettist Julia Jordan), Ethan Frome (with book writer Michael Ruby) and Lulu.
