"Smash" songwriter Joe Iconis, Rock of Ages' Jake Boyd and columnist Michael Musto are among the guests at the Aug. 28 installment of The Meeting*, hosted by Justin Sayre. In celebration of this month's theme, "Sex and the City," the foursome picks their favorite New York City songs as part of Playbill.com's Playbill Playlist.
Known for it "signature blend of outrageous comedy, politics, culture and everything in between," this month's edition of The Meeting*, held at 9:30 PM, celebrates the TV series "Sex and the City" with special guests Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins (Jelly's Last Jam), columnist Musto, songwriter Iconis ("Smash," The Black Suites) and Boyd (Rock of Ages). Tracy Stark serves as music director.
According to press notes, "Each month, the I.O.S gathers to honor an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. Justin Sayre – the show's creator, writer and host – serves as the Chairman of the Board of the International Order of Sodomites and brings his singular wit to essential business of the day through such regular features such as 'Letters to the Chairman' and 'New Rulings from the Board.'"
In celebration of this month's Meeting*, Playbill.com asked Iconis, Boyd, Musto and host Sayre to pick their favorite songs representing New York City and tell us why they made the list.
The remainder of the show's 2013 season will feature tributes to Liza Minnelli (Sept. 25), Dreamgirls (Oct. 30) and Grey Gardens (Nov. 20) along with the annual Holiday Spectacular (Dec. 18). The Meeting* is produced by and Dan Fortune and Adam J. Rosen.
