10 years ago the internationally acclaimed, award winning hit Off-Broadway musical comedy ALTAR BOYZ ended its 5 year record setting run at New World Stages in NYC. To celebrate this unique show and spread a little virtual ‘boy band’ love during these challenging times, the closing night company (Michael Kadin Craig, Travis Nesbitt, Mauricio Perez, Lee Markham, and Ravi Roth) and composer/lyricist Gary Adler gathered to sing one of the show’s signature songs, “The Calling.” This particular company performed the show together Off-Broadway for almost 2 years.

An accomplished musician, Daniels will perform a slew of songs and stories that create both hilarious and tender moments. The lineup features crowd favorites from his albums “Live at the Purple Rose,” “Grandfather’s Hat,” “Together Again,” “Keep It Right Here,” “Days Like These,” and his most recent album, “Simple Truths.”
7:30: Red Bull Theater LIVE, our series of informal FREE readings designed to continue to serve Red Bull Theater’s mission to revitalize the classics for today’s audience during the coronavirus pandemic, continues with THE WITCH OF EDMONTON that Red Bull Theater produced Off-Broadway in 2011.
In Jesse Berger’s adaptation of the original Jacobean play, this classic rips open the dark underbelly of a small town with humor and pathos. As the lives of its inhabitants–a witch, a fool, a young man, his two wives, an angry mob, and one very devilish dog–intersect in spellbinding ways, the power of a community for both good and evil is revealed.
This unrehearsed reunion reading will feature Craig Baldwin, Justin Blanchard, Carson Elrod, Christopher Innvar, Carman Lacivita, David Manis, Christopher McCann, Amanda Quaid, Everett Quinton, Antoinette Robinson, Miriam Silverman, Derek Smith, Raphael Nash Thompson, Sam Tsoutsouvas and Charlayne Woodard. Each will zoom in from wherever they are practicing social distancing.

8pm: Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore, with its starry rotating cast and compulsively entertaining subject matter, received rave reviews Off Broadway, where it enjoyed a successful three-year run and went on to become an international hit.
This intimate collection of stories is based on the bestseller by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the recollections of the Ephrons’ friends. The amusing and heartwarming play uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell funny and often poignant stories that all women can relate to, creating one of the most enduring theatergoing experiences in New York.
In 2017, cast members Lucy DeVito, Tracee Ellis Ross, Carol Kane, Natasha Lyonne, and Rosie O’Donnell reunited at 92Y for a special one-night-only performance of this touching and funny play, directed by Karen Carpenter, who directed the original New York and Los Angeles productions.
