Music director Lawrence Yurman will lead an all-star band that includes Steven Kenyon, reeds; Jack Cavari, guitar; Dick Sarpola, bass; and Ray Marchica, drums.
In a statement Tony winner Newman said, "I want to give the audience a sense of Adolph and Betty’s wonderful creative energy. They lit up any place they were, as if they were born with built-in spotlights. It’s no wonder they called their own show A Party!"
