Entitled Songs, Sonnets and Soliloquies, the evening will concentrate on four kinds of love: old, new, unrequited and true. A Shakespeare sonnet or soliloquy will introduce each section, which will be followed by several songs. Among the composers whose work will be featured are Sondheim, Bernstein, Pucinni, Debussy and Massenet. The 8 PM performance will also boast new tunes by Sam Davis, Dan Lipton, Marc Smollin and the Tony-winning Avenue Q tunesmiths Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez. Songs, Sonnets and Soliloquies will also feature performances by Kyra Himmelbaum and Kate Guyton; the latter will direct the one-night-only event.
