The hour-long program is part of the 2014 PBS Arts Fall Festival.

“For years I’ve been interested in reviving the classic variety show format, to display the wide range of contemporary talent — from pop music to theater to television and film stars — all performing songs drawn from the vast canon of the Great American Songbook,” Feinstein said in a statement. “It is rare these days to have a swinging 17-piece band for our soundtrack, and they truly made classic sounds come alive in a contemporary way. We’re so proud of the dazzling results.”

Feinstein is joined by two-time Tony winner Christine Ebersole, stage and screen star Cheyenne Jackson, “American Idol” contestant Jessica Sanchez, tap duo the Manzari Brothers and Oscar-nominated actress June Squibb.

The show was produced, directed and written by Marc Cherry, creator of the hit television shows “Desperate Housewives” and “Devious Maids.”

The concert takes place in the newly restored New York restaurant and nightclub, high atop 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
