Created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel, the evening featured the talents of Ashley Brown, Grammy winner Lari White, Tony nominee Bob Stillman, Scott Coulter and Carole J. Bufford. Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark's Patrick Page was the evening's special guest performer.
Coulter directed the concert with choreography by Vibecke Dahle and musical direction by Ross Patterson.
In a previous statement Siegel said, "I've often been asked if, in our twelfth season, we are running out of great years to highlight, my answer is 1975! After nearly 50 concerts in this series, we are presenting a year that includes shows like The Wiz, Chicago, A Chorus Line, and Shenandoah — just to name a few. There is a huge vein of great shows still to be mined and performed by an extraordinary cast. I'm also proud to announce that for the first time ever, we will feature the Broadway by the Year Chorus, made up of more than two dozen emerging musical theater stars."
