Broadway stars singing Hamilton’s “Dear Theodosia,” Ragtime’s “Our Children,” and other memorable two-person songs are planned for Two’s Company: Broadway’s Great Duets, the November 18 concert at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, New York.
Organizers told Playbill that other duets will include “What is this Feeling?” (Wicked), “Come Up To My Place” (On the Town), and further works by Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and other Broadway songwriters. “Two’s Company is an homage to the duet; the Broadway song that allows a show’s stars to interact; to fight, flirt, and fall in love. Two’s Company will celebrate great duets from hit Broadway shows such as The Book of Mormon, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder and more.”
The duets will be performed by a paired cast of Broadway veterans, including John Herrera (Tony nominee, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Evita), Sally Wilfert (Assassins), Jeff Kready (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, Sunday in the Park With George), Lora Lee Gayer (Holiday Inn, Follies), Jason Gotay (Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, Bring It On: The Musical), Farah Alvin (Grease, Saturday Night Fever), Kevin Massey (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, Memphis), and Gabrielle Stravelli.
The 8 PM concert, which is billed as a Merkin Concert Hall Broadway Close Up Presentation, will be directed by Tony Award nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Ragtime), and will have musical direction by Georgia Stitt.
