Hosted and written by artistic director Phyllis Newman, the concerts feature the talents of Sarah Uriarte Berry, Josh Grisetti, Marcus Lovett, Mary Testa and Zakiya Young with special guest vocalist Leslie Uggams. Carl Andress directs.
Music director Lawrence Yurman leads 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!"
