Broadway actors Jenn Colella, Ann Harada, Andy Karl and Howard McGillin presented the songs of Amanda Green at Birdland in Manhattan on July 19.
The singers were accompanied by a band of Broadway musicians led by Matt Gallagher. Green wrote the lyrics to Tom Kitt's music for the Broadway musical High Fidelity. She is currently co-writing lyrics for Bring It On, collaborating with Kitt and Lin-Manuel Miranda; and the score for Hands On a Hardbody, collaborating with Doug Wright and T Bone Burnett.
