Brooklyn's National Sawdust will present an evening paying tribute to late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro April 22.
Curated by Tony winning director Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch ), Laura Nyro Night will begin at 8 PM. Mayer will also host the evening, which will feature performances by composers Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz and Jeanine Tesori, who will draw connections between their music and Nyro's. Also scheduled to perform are Tony nominees Melissa Errico and Judy Kuhn and violinist Christian Hebel. Michael Cunningham will share a special reading.
National Sawdust is located at 80 North 6th Street in Brooklyn.
