Broadway stars will be shaking the rafters at The Town Hall on September 30 at 8pm, and without the aid of amplification, at the latest Broadway Unplugged concert. This will mark the 10th anniversary of the Scott Siegel-produced series, which aims to recreate the early days of Broadway when singers relied on the power of their voice rather than microphones.
The Broadway Unplugged concert will feature the talents of numerous Broadway singers, including Christopher Sieber, Jeff McCarthy, Tonya Pinkins, Liz Callaway, Max von Essen, Noah Racey, Christiane Noll, Bill Daugherty, and Jeffry Denman. They will also be joined by the trio Baritones Unbound, made up of Broadway regular Marc Kudisch, Jeff Mattsey of the Metropolitan Opera, and Tony Award winner Ben Davis (La Boheme on Broadway).
Tickets are available for $27, $52, and $77. The Town Hall is located at 123. W. 43rd Street.
A new edition of “Broadway Unplugged” is scheduled for Monday, December 3 at 8pm, and the event has announced a list of great Broadway performers who will be taking part. Cheyenne Jackson (The Performers), Laura Osnes (soon to be Broadway’s own Cinderella), Andy Karl (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), Julia Murney (Falling), Orfeh (Legally Blonde), Natalie Toro, William Michals, Jeffry Denman, and Bill Daugherty are currently on the roster. More names are expected to be announced soon.
A New York City theater tradition, “Broadway Unplugged” is produced by Scott Siegel. What makes these concerts different than your average concert featuring Broadway talent is that this one harkens back to the early days of Broadway by having the singers perform without the aid of microphones. In addition to allowing the audience to better appreciate Broadway songs in their pure, un-amplified form, “Broadway Unplugged” also gives its stars a chance to show off their chops by filling the 1,500-seat Town Hall theater space with their voices.
