Twelve songs will be performed tonight from Finn's new project Songs of Innocence and Experience. There will also be selections from The Royal Family of Broadway, A New Brain, In Trousers, March of the Falsettos, Falsettoland, Elegies, and Romance in Hard Times.
The Oct 31 event begins at 8pm. Single tickets are $35. The Kaufman Center is located at 129 W. 67th St, between Broadway and Amsterdam. For tickets call (212) 501-3330.
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!
