On Oct. 19 an evening celebrating the music of composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz will be presented at 8 PM. A host of Broadway actors — including Liz Callaway, Judy Kuhn, Lari White and several others associated with his music — are expected to honor the composer of Wicked, Godspell, Pippin, The Magic Show and The Baker's Wife. Oct. 20 will feature An Evening with Betty Buckley. The Tony Award-winning actress, who has graced the Broadway stage in Sunset Boulevard, Triumph of Love, Cats, 1776, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Pippin, will make her solo Town Hall debut at 8 PM. Buckley will celebrate the release of her forthcoming recordings during the concert and will also offer tunes from an eclectic repertoire that spans the worlds of pop, rock, folk, blues, standards and musical theatre.
Broadway Originals! is the title of the 3 PM concert Oct. 21. The afternoon performance, according to the Town Hall website, will feature "a dazzling array of Broadway performers reprising songs they introduced either in original Broadway productions or Broadway revivals." Among those already scheduled to perform are Len Cariou, Alan Campbell, Anita Gillette, George S. Irving and Martin Vidnovic.
