This new version will feature a cast of Broadway stars and Vocal Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center. Casting will be announced at a later time.

One of the many who will offer concerts at Tanglewood in the upcoming season is six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald, who will play Ozawa Hall July 19.
