Cast members from the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin, Scandalous Tony nominee Carolee Carmello and Giant co-stars Brian D'Arcy James and Kate Baldwin will appear at New York City Barnes and Noble locations in the coming weeks.

The cast of the Tony Award-winning revival of Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson's Pippin will celebrate the release of their cast album with a performance and signing July 9 at 4 PM at the 150 East 86th Street location. Tony Award winner Diane Paulus staged the circus-inspired production.

On July 16 at 6 PM, the 86th Street location will welcome Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson writers Kathie Lee Gifford and David Friedman, as well as the musical's Tony-nominated star, Carmello, for a performance and cast album singing.

Tony Award nominees James and Baldwin will join Tony-nominated writer Michael John LaChiusa for a performance from his acclaimed musical Giant, which played the Public Theater last winter. The artists will sign the two-disc cast album during the 7 PM event at the 86th Street location. Giant has a book by Tony nominee Sybille Pearson and is based on the Edna Ferber novel.
