Broadway by the Year, in its record-breaking 16th season at The Town Hall, once again re-invents itself to bring a fresh and exciting new perspective to The Great White Way’s classic show tunes. This season, series creator/writer/director/host Scott Siegel will use each of our four concerts to explore the ever-popular music that was born on Broadway in four different decades.

This is the decade in which Stephen Sondheim truly came of age, changing the Broadway musical in new and exciting ways. The Public Theater became a force on Broadway with A Chorus Line, Kander & Ebb emerged as a brand new writing team with guts and style.

Drama Desk Awards Nominees Rachel Bay Jones (Pippin, Hair, Broadway’s upcoming Dear Evan Hanson), Robert Creighton (Cagney, Chicago) and Farah Alvin (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Grease, Saturday Night Fever), in addition to Noah Racey (Never Gonna Dance, Curtains, Thoroughly Modern Millie), Morgan Weed (American Psycho, Rent) and Maxine Linehan, are set to star.
