The evening will include music by Cole Porter, Sam Cooke and Duke Ellington, as well as Jeanine Tesori and Stephen Sondheim, among others.

"I am so thrilled to work with an actress who truly defines the meaning of triple threat – not only is Sutton an incredible singer; she's also an incredible actress, and one heck of a dancer," music director Steven Reineke said in a previous statement. "She is so exciting to watch and listen to, and I know that she and the great New York Pops will blow us all away."
