By Michael Gioia
Drama Desk nominee Nancy Anderson (Far From Heaven), Jannie Jones (The Full Monty), Tony Award nominee Isabel Keating (The Boy From Oz), Drama Desk nominee Garrett Long (South Pacific) and Jonathan Rayson (The Fig Leaves Are Falling) have joined the lineup for UnsungMusicalsCo.'s Unsung Jimmy Van Heusen June 17 at 8 PM at The Cutting Room.
The company will launch its Unsung Cabaret Series with the intimate evening that celebrates the centennial of four-time Academy Award-winning and three-time Tony Award-nominated composer Jimmy Van Heusen (Skyscraper, Walking Happy, Thoroughly Modern Millie).
Hosted by Tony Award nominee Tom Wopat, the evening will also feature the talents of Rachel de Benedet and Christine Pedi.
Interspersed with such Van Heusen standards as “The Tender Trap," “Call Me Irresponsible” and “Moonlight Becomes You," the evening will showcase the little-known gems from his five Broadway musicals and his fabled Johnny Burke & Bing Crosby song series, "The Flop Parade."
UMC artistic director Ben West will direct the concert with musical direction and arrangements by Benet Braun and lighting design by Joe Hodge.
