Here's how the evening is billed, "With an illustrious catalogue boasting such popular standards as 'The Best is Yet to Come,' 'Witchcraft,' and 'Hey, Look Me Over,' legendary lyricist Carolyn Leigh spent three decades perfecting her own indelible brand of smart, sexy, sophisticated songwriting. UnsungMusicalsCo. continues its celebration of the Tony and Grammy-nominated icon with Unsung Carolyn Leigh, Vol. 2, an all-new, jazz-infused evening that highlights the inimitable artist’s little-known works including several items written with Jule Styne for the 1976 revue Hellzapoppin, a trunk song from How Now, Dow Jones, and a lost musical number penned with Elmer Bernstein for the troubled tryout of I Do! I Do! Interspersed with a handful of Ms. Leigh’s early career hits, the intimate evening features rare audio clips of the lyricist and more than twenty remarkable melodies."
