What is this young man doing to that drumstick? Blast! kicked off the annual Stars in the Alley free concert May 30 with one of their musical revue's typical tongue-in-cheek (or tongue-on-drum) numbers.

The annual event features music and dance numbers from currently running shows in a free concert held in Broadway's Shubert Alley.
