The upcoming concert will be held June 18 at 7 PM at the Zipper Factory. Those scheduled to lend their vocal talents to the evening include Christian Campbell, Gloria Reuben, Miriam Shor, Mary Faber, Michael Winther, Alison Fraser, Peter Friedman and Manoel Felciano. The concert, according to press notes, will feature "pop and rock songs that weren't written for musicals, but sound as if they might have been – songs that tell a story, create a character, paint a full, vivid portrait as a great song in a musical is meant to do." Concertgoers can expect to hear such tunes as The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," Elton John and Bernie Taupin's "Captain Fantastic," David Bowie's "Major Tom" and Sting's "Roxanne" as well as songs by Joni Mitchell, Rufus Wainwright, Stephin Merritt and The Decemberists.
Tickets, priced $50 and $90 with post-concert cast party, are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or by visiting www.nymf.org. The Zipper Factory is located in Manhattan at 336 West 37th Street.
