Broadway Close Up:
Hidden Gems

Thursday, November 01, 2018  |  7:30pm


With host SEAN HARTLEY.  Featuring NIKKI RENÉE DANIELS (The Book of Mormon, Porgy and Bess), CLIFTON DUNCAN (The Play That Goes Wrong), DAVID GARRISON (Wicked), SALLY WILFERT (Assassins) and GABRIELLE STRAVELLI.

Broadway Close Up teams up with One Day University for an evening showcasing brilliant songs from musicals you probably don’t know. Host SEAN HARTLEY and a cast of Broadway stars will tell the fascinating stories of musicals by great Broadway writers that never made it big, and the remarkable songs that have endured – or that deserve to be better known. You’ll get a new perspective on songs you know and love, and discover overlooked gems you haven’t heard before. Find out why Frank Loesser wrote the now-obscure Green Willow after his hugely successful How To Succeed…, and get the inside story on Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer’s “Come Rain or Come Shine” from St. Louis Woman as well as lesser-known musicals by Comden & Green and Jason Robert Brown.

This concert will also take place on Mon, Oct 29 at 7:30 pm. Please note that the Nov 1 performance is not part of the Broadway Close Up subscription package.

Cast list is based on artist availability and may change.
