Emmy winner Edie Falco will host a free concert May 7 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, which is currently the home of the Tony-winning revival of Anything Goes.

The 8 PM performance will celebrate the release of "Over The Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project," a multi-media charity project that includes a two-CD set of original lullabies composed and sung by top Broadway artists, an illustrated hardcover book of 17 songs from the album, a corresponding e-book encompassing the entire collection, and a documentary film.

The concert will feature the talents of Anastasia Barzee, Walter Charles, Jed Cohen, Janet Dacal, Marva Hicks, Nikki M. James, Marc Kudish, Donna Murphy and Caesar Samayoa.

These artists will perform lullabies composed by Rupert Holmes, Tom Kitt, Michael John LaChiusa, Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz and Maury Yeston. The event will also include excerpts from the documentary film and web series featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the project's creation.

Grammy nominee Matt Pierson, who produced the recording, will serve as the musical director for the evening. Musicians slated to perform at the concert include pianist Kevin Hays, percussionist Bashiri Johnson, guitarist Julian Lage and bassist Harish Raghavan.

The Stephen Sondheim Theater is located at 124 West 43rd Street, between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas.
