The event begins at 3 PM with a short question and answer discussion after which Selya will sign copies of the magazine. The first 100 people at The Drama Book Shop receive a free copy of the February issue featuring the Broadway star on the cover.

Selya currently stars in the Tony Award-nominated role of Eddie — which he created for the Broadway musical. The New York native was trained at the School of American Ballet from the age of 10 and has since worked with the American Ballet Theatre, Houston Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre and Cuyahoga Youth Ballet.

Admission to the event at The Drama Book Shop, 250 West 40 Street, is free and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Movin' Out creators Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp won Tony Awards for orchestrations ( with Stuart Malina) and choreography, respectively. The show recently launched its national tour from Detroit's Fisher Theatre, Jan. 27.

The bookless show, currently residing at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre, uses Joel's song lyrics and Tharp's choreography to tell the story of five friends and lovers across three decades through love, war and loss. There is no dialogue and all songs are performed by the pianist-singer, who sings non-stop and heads an on-stage band during the show.
