The evenings celebrate such writers as Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart, Duke Ellington, Leonard Bernstein and Billy Joel, who captured New York's spirit in song.

"The show will be a kaleidoscopic vision of life in the city, from the inspiring and romantic to the aggravating and the quirky," Winer said in a statement. "Why have so many songwriters been compelled to write about New York? What is it about this city that fuels an endless supply of stories? New York is a character all itself, and we have this great cast of real New Yorkers (meaning they come from everywhere) to take us on this entertaining and exhilarating musical ride in search of what it really means to be a New Yorker."
