Instead, the famed jazz club will present songs from the new musical The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, which was recently seen at the Barrington Stage Company. A host of theatre favorites — including Matt Caplan, Donna Lynne Champlin, Lynne Wintersteller, Michael Winther and Charlie Brady — will perform songs from the score. Tom Kitt will be the musical director for the 7 PM concert. The Mysteries of Harris Burdick features a score by Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen with book and direction by Joe Calarco. The musical has been described as "a wild ride through wonder, fear, and the imagination. Find out what happens when a child goes missing from a phantasmagorical neighborhood inspired by Chris Van Allsburg's ('Jumanji,' 'Polar Express') famous picture book."
