Created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel, the evening features the talents of Christiane Noll (Tony nominee for Ragtime), Jeffry Denman (Drama Desk nominee for Yank!), Meredith Patterson (White Christmas), William Michals (South Pacific), Kendrick Jones (Scottsboro Boys), Jason Graae (Nightlife Award winner), Scott Coulter (Nightlife Award winner), Bill Daugherty (multi-award winning vocalist) and Carole J. Bufford (11 O'clock Numbers at 11'O Clock at Feinstein's).
Coulter directs the concert with choreography by Denman. Audiences can expect to hear songs from shows that debuted on Broadway in 1932. Among the titles will be "April in Paris," "Night and Day," "Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee," "It's Only a Paper Moon," "Brother Can You Spare a Dime," "Soft Lights and Sweet Music" and "I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues."
Ross Patterson is the musical director.
"I especially love doing the Broadway by the Year concerts that single out a year in the 1930s," stated Siegel, "because the music is always so specific to the era. And we had some of Broadway's greatest composers working in 1932. I always say that audiences come in to shows from these early years thinking they won't know any of the music because they don't know the shows. Instead, they come out all aglow from hearing so many famous songs. Broadway, after all, was the hit-maker of the nation's popular music."
