Christine Andreas, Daniel Breaker, Britney Coleman, Max Von Essen and Heather Jane Rolff Set for Brush Up Your Shakespeare Concerts
By Andrew Gans
92Y's acclaimed Lyrics & Lyricists series will continue June 1-3 with Brush Up Your Shakespeare: The Bard and the Broadway Musical.
Co-written by artistic director Mark Lamos and Deborah Grace Winer, the concerts will be hosted by Lamos and will feature music director Wayne Barker on piano.
Vocalists will include Christine Andreas, Daniel Breaker, Britney Coleman, Max von Essen and Heather Jane Rolff.
“A rich and surprising body of work has been inspired by the plays of William Shakespeare, not the least of which can be discovered in some of the greatest Broadway musicals of the last 100 years, as well as pop, rock, and classical genres,” said director Lamos in a statement. “Our program celebrates a wide variety of styles in music and lyrics, and our performers will enlighten you with their performances of some of the usual suspects (Kiss Me Kate, West Side Story, The Boys From Syracuse) along with a surprising mix of jazz and pop from the worlds of Hollywood and cabaret.”
Show times are June 1 at 8 PM, June 2 at 2 PM and 7 PM and June 3 at 2 PM and 7:30 PM.
