The performances at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills also feature Tony nominee Liz Callaway. A VIP reception with Schwartz follows both shows.
Guest conductor Dr. Timothy Seelig (San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus) leads the 200-plus-member L.A. chorus in songs and medleys from Wicked, The Baker’s Wife, Children of Eden, Godspell, The Magic Show and Pippin, along with screen favorites from "Enchanted," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," "Pocahontas" and "The Prince of Egypt."
Schwartz, who is currently represented on Broadway with the Tony-winning revival of Pippin, is scheduled to perform several songs and accompany the GMCLA in their debut of “Testimony,” his new choral work about gay teens coming to terms with their sexuality and struggling with thoughts of suicide.
