Lansbury (who won a Tony Award for her performance as Mrs. Lovett) and Hearn (who eventually succeeded Len Cariou in the title role of the vengeful barber) will reprise Sweeney's Act I finale, "A Little Priest," for the upcoming celebration, which will be held at 8:30 PM in the Kennedy Center's Concert Hall. The evening will also include three men who played Valjean in the Broadway company of Les Misérables: J. Mark McVey, Craig Schulman and Timothy Shew will all be on hand to sing Boublil and Schönberg's "Bring Him Home."
The evening is set to begin with a reception, followed by the gala dinner and performance in the Concert Hall. Cocktails and dancing will follow the concert. For reservations call (202) 416-8338. Tickets for the concert only are priced $30-$75 and are available by visiting www.kennedy-center.org.
