The Public Sings
One Nite Only! January 30, 2006 Concert Celebrates 50 Years of The Public Theater...
I got an e-mail invitation for this and it sounds so cool. From the invitation:
In honor of its 50th Anniversary Celebration, The Public is holding a one-night only event dedicated to the rich history of musicals produced by The Public Theater including Hair, A Chorus Line, Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, Caroline, or Change, and many others. The evening of Janaury 30 will contain an original musical interpretation of shows with a non-traditional juxtaposition of voices and images. This once-in-a-lifetime event will be fresh, innovative and unprecedented.
Featuring performances by Meryl Streep, Zach Braff, Idina Menzel, Jerffrey Wright, Betty Buckley, Elaine Stritch, Donna McKechnie, Lillias White, Natalie Portman, Donna Murphy, Phylicia Rashad, Eartha Kitt, Savion Glover, Tonya Pinkins, Billy Porter, Cynthia Nixon, Rosie Perez, Mary Testa, Lea Delaria, National Dance Institute, and More! Directed by James Lapine.
