PLAYBILL EXCLUSIVE: LaChanze Revisits Ahrens & Flaherty's Once On This Island for NY Pops Tribute

The New York Pops' annual gala will honor the music of Tony Award-winning songwriting team Lynn Ahrens & Stephen Flaherty in a concert called Journey On. Featuring special guests LaChanze, Norm Lewis, Brian d'Arcy James, Terrence McNally, Marin Mazzie, Jason Danieley, Nikki M. James, Rebecca Luker and more, the April 30 show will mine the treasure trove of the Ahrens-Flaherty catalogue, including Ragtime, Once On This Island, My Favorite Year and Seussical. In this exclusive peek at the concert, Tony winner LaChanze joins Pops musical director and conductor Steven Reineke in rehearsal as she takes on "The Human Heart," from Once On This Island, a musical that earned the actress her first Tony nomination.
