The stars came out for Victor Garber's performance at 54 Below. Bradley Cooper (Williamstown’s The Elephant Man), Sarah Rice (Sweeney Todd) and Amy Irving (We Live Here), plus Tony Award winners Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, David Hyde Pierce, Betty Buckley, John Benjamin Hickey, Ron Rifkin, John Kander, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman were among those who visited with the singing actor backstage.
The venue billed the concert as follows: "Before Eli Stone, there was
Sweeney Todd, before 'Titanic,' there was
Lend Me a Tenor, before 'First Wives Club,' there was
Assassins, before 'Alias,' there was
Arcadia and before 'Legally Blonde,' there was
Damn Yankees. The New York stage is thrilled to welcome back
Victor Garber as he makes his cabaret debut."
