On Monday, February 26, back by popular demand, Broadway At The Pierre teams up again with award-winning Broadway Sings For Pride creative director Neal Bennington for a special evening with some of Broadway’s brightest stars.
The exclusive one-hour show will feature a lively set list of musical theater and pop songs from three distinguished performers: Nasia Thomas (Beautiful The Carole King Musical), Arbender Robinson (Broadway’s The Lion King and Book of Mormon), Gayle Turner (Broadway’s The Wiz (Original Broadway Production). They will be backed by musical director and pianist Chris Curcio.
Broadway At The Pierre launched in October with a sold-out concert in The Pierre’s Two E Lounge from Wicked alums Hayley Podschun and Jennifer DiNoia. The duo returned for an encore by special demand in November. On December 11th, the series welcomed a performance from longtime Kinky Boots cast members Kevin Smith Kirkwood and Natalie Joy Johnson.
