Conceived by Peter Gethers, Jack Viertel and Doyle, the musical event features Sondheim's music arranged and performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Marsalis.
A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, presented by the combined forces of City Center’s Encores! program and Jazz at Lincoln Center, "celebrates love in New York and love of New York. Native Manhattanite Sondheim and adopted citizen Marsalis (originally from New Orleans) will compare musical notes on their shared passion for our city," according to press notes.
The program will feature more than two-dozen Sondheim compositions, each piece newly re-imagined by Marsalis.

City Center’s annual Gala Benefit will take place on Nov. 14 and will include a post-performance dinner at the Plaza Hotel.
