Step into the big, bold musical world of composer Scott Frankel and lyricist Michael Korie, the celebrated team behind the Broadway musicals Grey Gardens and War Paint and two of today’s top contributors of new standards to the American musical theater repertoire. For this intimate evening of song and story, Frankel and Korie are joined by some of Broadway and the West End’s brightest stars. Featured performers include one of American theater’s favorite leading ladies, Kelli O’Hara, who starred in Frankel and Korie’s Playwrights Horizons production of Far From Heaven, and the celebrated English stage, television, and film star Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey). They’ll share the stage with special guests Brandon Victor Dixon (Hamilton, The Color Purple), Melissa Errico (My Fair Lady), Leslie Kritzer (Something Rotten!), Scarlett Strallen (The New Yorkers), and Tony Yazbeck (On the Town, Gypsy). Much like how the New York Times described the Broadway production of Grey Gardens, this is “an experience no passionate theatergoer should miss.”

“The songs…sustain a level of refined language and psychological detail as elevated as Stephen Sondheim’s.”
– New York Times
“A rare ability to move and provoke an audience on matters personal and existential.”
– Chicago Tribune
