Broadway Close Up:
Maury Yeston

Monday, October 10, 2016  |  7:30pm


Eye-opening interviews & bring-down-the-house performances

Maury Yeston's songs combine a romantic sweep with the wit and panache of a great Broadway storyteller. He joins Theater@Kaufman Director SEAN HARTLEY to discuss his life and career, including two musicals that swept the Tonys (five each including Best Musical and Best Score): Nine and Titanic. Hear the stories behind his hits as well as shows never produced in New York, including his own musical based on Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera. (Spoiler alert: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical based on the same book made it to Broadway first, but Yeston’s Phantom has been produced more than 1,000 times.) With REBECCA LUKER (Fun Home), JOSH GRISETTI (It Shoulda Been You), SALLY WILFERT (Assassins) and COREY COTT (Newsies). Music directed by GREG JARRETT.
