Rebecca Luker and George Dvorsky will team up for two concerts in November with the Virginia Symphony.
On Nov. 8 and 9, Luker and Dvorsky will offer "The Broadway Concert: A Romantic Journey" during the pops series at Chrysler Hall in Norfolk, Virginia. The evenings — show time is 8 PM — will feature more than 30 songs from The Great White Way, including "All That Jazz" and "I Could Have Danced All Night." Shizuo Kuwahara will conduct the symphony orchestra.
Rebecca Luker was most recently on The Great White Way in the acclaimed revival of Meredith Willson's The Music Man. She received Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for her role as Marian, the librarian. This summer she starred opposite Michael Cerveris as Clara in the Kennedy Center production of Stephen Sondheim's Passion. Luker's other Broadway credits include roles in The Sound of Music, Show Boat, The Secret Garden and The Phantom of the Opera.
George Dvorsky was featured in the Broadway casts of The Scarlet Pimpernel, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Passion and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and has appeared in the North Shore Music Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol for the past ten years.
