Feinstein’s/54 Below will present the concert series debut of Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway March 21 at 7 PM and 9:30 PM.
The show is directed and produced by Robert W. Schneider, host of the podcast Behind the Curtain: Broadway’s Living Legends. Schneider and Feinstein’s/54 Below programming director Jennifer Ashley Tepper will co-host the concert, introducing performances and anecdotes from some of the show’s original cast and creators.
Broadway Bound, according to press notes, “celebrates musicals that were slated to appear on the Great White Way but never arrived. Whether it was due to lack of funding, temperamental creatives, or just being a victim of time, these musicals will be dusted off and their songs brought to their first New York audience.”
The first edition of Broadway Bound will feature songs from such musicals as All About Us, The Baker’s Wife, Captain America, How Do You Do I Love You, Mata Hari, Nerds, Pleasures and Palaces, Prettybelle, Rebecca, The Rhythm Club, Robin Hood: The Final Adventure, and more.
Performers scheduled to appear include Loni Ackerman (Evita), Shelly Burch (Nine), Martin Charnin (Annie), Bryan Fenkart (Memphis), Cady Huffman (The Producers), Lesli Margherita (Matilda), Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones), and Jill Paice (Curtains). More performers will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Broadway Bound: The Musicals That Never Came To Broadway will feature music direction by Joshua Zecher Ross with Andrew Garrett Karl serving as projections designer.
