News   Opel, Morrison and D'Abruzzo Join Undercover Showtunes Concert
 
Nancy Opel, who will be seen in the Patti LuPone Gypsy at City Center; LoveMusik's Ann Morrison; and Avenue Q Tony nominee Stephanie D'Abruzzo have joined the cast of Undercover Showtunes, the final concert in the New York Musical Theatre Festival's Spring Concert Benefit Series.

As previously announced, the upcoming concert will be held June 18 at 7 PM at the Zipper Factory. Opel, D'Abruzzo and Morrison will join Christian Campbell, Gloria Reuben, Miriam Shor, Mary Faber, Michael Winther, Alison Fraser, Peter Friedman and Manoel Felciano for the one-night-only event. The concert, according to press notes, will feature "pop and rock songs that weren't written for musicals, but sound as if they might have been – songs that tell a story, create a character, paint a full, vivid portrait as a great song in a musical is meant to do." Concertgoers can expect to hear such tunes as Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," The Decemberists' "16 Military Wives," The Beatles' "She's Leaving Home," Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's "Our House," Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer," Stevie Wonder's "Love's in Need of Love Today," Janis Ian's "At Seventeen," David Bowie"s "Space Oddity," Alanis Morrissette's "Unsent," Elvis Costello's "Every Day I Write This Book" and Rufus Wainwright's "Oh What a World."

Tickets, priced $50 and $90 with post-concert cast party, are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting www.nymf.org. The Zipper Factory is located in Manhattan at 336 West 37th Street.
