A few of the participants in the series recently spoke with Penny Fuller said, "Charles and I try to get together every 40 years for a reunion. Yep, that's how long ago it's been since Applause opened. Now we're working on the next 40th get together. Seriously, it's a joy to celebrate my friend and his music. Every song is a gem." Karen Mason joked that her upcoming show is "like the Rat Pack...but kinder, gentler, and less inebriated!" Mason's co-star, Gregg Edelman, added, "There are few things I love in life more than being on stage with Karen Mason. I can't wait for the 29th."

Performances begin at 8 PM with the exception of the April 25 show, which begins at 7 PM.
