The Broadway at Birdland series continued Aug. 1 with A Salute To Dre.Dance. Hosted by Scott Coulter, the evening featured performances by Julia Murney, Tony Yazbeck, Telly Leung and more.

In addition to Coulter, Murney, Yazbeck and Leung, the concert also featuerd perforances by Jad Abumrad (NPR's "Radiolab"), Katy Pfaffl (War Horse), Sharon McNight (Starmites), Jessica Hendy (Aida) and Michael John LaChiusa (composer-lyricist of The Wild Party; Hello, Again).
