The 92Y's 2014 Lyrics & Lyricists concert series comes to a close May 31 with Panning for Gold: Great Songs from Flop Shows, featuring Lorna Luft, Tony Yazbeck, Tony winner Lillias White and more.

Curated by Tony Award-winning lyricist and director David Zippel, the May 31-June 1 concerts include songs from Very Warm for May, How Now Dow Jones, Everybody’s Welcome and Drat The Cat!, as well as some of Zippel's own short-lived works.

"This show, I hope, will be filled with surprises," Zippel said in a statement. "Songs that you walked in humming but had no idea were given birth in stillborn musicals, and songs that even the most dedicated Broadway buff has never heard."

Luft, Yazbeck and White are joined by Brent Barrett, Christiane Noll and Jessica Lea Patty.



Audiences can expect songs including "All the Things You Are," "They Don't Make 'Em Like That Anymore," "As Time Goes By" and "He Touched Me."
