Entitled "Cole Porter: You're the Top," the one-night-only event will feature The New York Pops as well as the vocals of Broadway performers Danieley and Mazzie, who recently teamed forces for a production of Candide in San Francisco. Held in Carnegie Hall's Isaac Stern Auditorium, show time is scheduled for 8 PM.
Danieley was most recently on Broadway as Malcolm MacGregor in The Full Monty, a role he repeated in London. For his Broadway debut in Candide, he received a Theatre World Award and a Drama Desk nomination. His other theatrical credits include the City Center Encores! production of Strike Up the Band as well as Off-Broadway runs in Dream True and Floyd Collins. A three-time Tony Award nominee for her performances in Kiss Me, Kate; Ragtime; and Passion, Mazzie's other theatrical credits include Into the Woods, Big River, The World Goes 'Round, the City Center Encores! production of Out of this World and Off-Broadway's The Trojan Women: A love Story, where she met husband Danieley. Mazzie also recently concluded a run in the London production of Kiss Me, Kate, where she earned an Olivier Award nomination for her work.
