Conceived, produced, written and hosted by cabaret critic Scott Siegel, the 8 PM concert at Town Hall will feature the aforementioned theatre/cabaret favorites performing without amplification. In a statement, producer Siegel said, "The excitement surrounding last year's concert simply demanded that we do it again. I'm thrilled and humbled by the response of the Broadway community of stars because so many of them agreed to sing in this concert with so much enthusiasm."
The musical director for the one-night-only event is Ross Patterson, who will lead his Little Big Band.
