By Michael Gioia
UnsungMusicalsCo. launches its Unsung Cabaret Series with Unsung Jimmy Van Heusen, an 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), June 17 at The Cutting Room.
Hosted by Tony Award nominee Tom Wopat, the evening begins at 8 PM and features the talents of Rachel de Benedet (Catch Me If You Can), Drama Desk nominee Christine Pedi (Talk Radio), 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).
Interspersed with such Van Heusen standards as “The Tender Trap," “Call Me Irresponsible” and “Moonlight Becomes You," the evening showcases 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 directs the concert with musical direction and arrangements by Benet Braun and lighting design by Joe Hodge.
Tickets ($30 general admission, with limited premium seating available for $60) are available by visiting www.ticketfly.com. The Cutting Room is located at 44 East 32nd Street in New York City. For more information, visit UnsungMusicals.org.
