Tony nominees Rebecca Luker and Marin Mazzie perform in The Bridge to Broadway concert July 2 in Rockefeller Park as part of the annual River to River Festival, which runs through July 15 in downtown New York.



Luker (The Music Man, Show Boat) and Mazzie (Carrie, Ragtime) are joined by Gretchen Parlato, Sachal Vasandani and Tia Fuller at the 7 PM concert. 

Here's how the event is described: "Broadway repertoire crosses with jazz and pop in this original concert production exclusive to the River To River Festival. Jazz greats, vocalists Gretchen Parlato, Sachal Vasandani, with saxophonist Tia Fuller, take on classic Broadway show tunes, along with multiple Tony nominees Rebecca Luker and Marin Mazzie, performing songs from outside of the Broadway canon."

The River to River Festival, Manhattan's free summer arts festival, began June 17. William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, presented by the New York Classical Theatre at the Castle Clinton, is also offered at the festival. Performances continue through July 22.
