Casting has been announced for The Broadway Musicals of 1961, part of the acclaimed Broadway by the Year series, which will be presented March 11 at The Town Hall.



The 8 PM concert will feature the talents of Tony nominee Christine Andreas, Tony nominee Emily Skinner, Drama Desk nominee Kerry O'Malley, Drama Desk nominee Jeffry Denman and two-time Nightlife Award winner Scott Coulter as well as the Broadway by the Year Chorus.

Attendees can expect to hear songs from Carnival, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Subways Are For Sleeping, Sail Away, Milk and Honey and more.

The concert will be directed and choreographed by Jeffry Denman. The Broadway by the Year Chorus is under the direction of Scott Coulter; musical direction will be by Ross Patterson. The show will be written and hosted by series creator Scott Siegel.

In a statement Siegel said, "Our sensational stars and the great songs of 1961 from shows like Carnival and How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, makes for a truly exciting concert. And I'm thrilled we will have the Broadway by the Year Chorus back because having them gives our show a unique, dynamic quality. Between the terrific Broadway dance we've come to expect from Jeffry Denman's exquisite choreography and the ever-building, expanding cast, I expect this will be a big, bold show. Personally, I can't wait to see the musical theater fireworks that will explode on the Town Hall stage come March 11th."
