The starry "Dames" include Tony Award winners Betty Buckley, Audra McDonald and Bebe Neuwirth; three-time Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara; 9 to 5 star Stephanie J. Block; and original Annie, Andrea McArdle. Guys and Dolls' Nick Adams is also part of the evening. (The previously announced Kristin Chenoweth has withdrawn from the concert due to a film scheduling conflict.)
Hosted and "re-constructed" by Seth Rudetsky, the evening, according to press notes, features "a new format of songs and stories from the women of Broadway, as well as rare video clips from earlier days in each of their remarkable careers, accompanied by commentary from Rudetsky and the women themselves."
"Year after year, the Nothing Like a Dame concert has been an absolutely wonderful experience for all concerned," said Phyllis Newman in a previous statement. "I'm thrilled we've been able to be of such help to so many women in our industry while also providing such a magnificent evening of entertainment for so many people."
