08 Nov 2012
Ryan Silverman will join "Smash" star Megan Hilty for the New York Pops' March 8, 2013, concert Come Fly With Me: The Songs of Sammy Cahn at Carnegie Hall.
Silverman (Phantom of the Opera, Cry-Baby) replaces previously announced "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, who had to withdraw from the concert due to a scheduling conflict. Hilty has been seen on Broadway in Wicked and the Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Steven Reineke will conduct the Pops for the special 8 PM evening. Here's how it's billed: "Academy Award-winning songwriter Sammy Cahn helped shape the careers of legends such as Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, and Dean Martin."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
