Broadway history repeats itself in high style at Feinstein’s/54 Below on Friday, July 15th at 7 PM when some of Broadway’s most memorable songs are performed by the Broadway stars who originated them on the Great White Way. Five decades will be represented in this once (okay, twice) in a lifetime experience. Here is the chance to hear the original Tobias from the very first production of Sweeney Todd sing “No One’s Gonna Harm You;” and to once again witness Shelly Burch sing “Unusual Way” from Nine, which she performed in the very first production of that iconic musical. The list goes on: Daniel Reichard who played Bob Gaudio in the opening night cast of Jersey Boys, Beth Fowler who was Mrs. Potts in the opening night cast of Beauty & The Beast, Walter Willison who played Danny Kaye’s son in Two by Two, and the ever-so-charming Tony Danza who gave a critically acclaimed performance in Honeymoon in Vegas.
Scott Siegel, the creator, writer, director, and host of BROADWAY ORIGINALS has put together a cast that is distinguished by the fact that every single performer who will appear has either been nominated for, or won, one or more major awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desk Awards, Theater World Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, etc. Just look at this incredible cast…
