Broadway By The Year, Created, Written, Hosted, and Directed by Scott Siegel

An extraordinary number of hit Broadway shows fit the description of “Jukebox or Revues Musical.” In our unique concert event at Town Hall, we will unearth the history of this much-maligned genre to reveal its importance in the resurrection of composers, songs, and styles. These musicals have served everything from rock ’n’ roll (The Jersey Boys, Beautiful, All Shook Up) to classical music (Kismet), and from country (Ring of Fire) to Rhythm & Blues (Black & Blue, After Midnight). It has highlighted oftentimes forgotten composers, bringing their names back into the limelight, such as Eubie Blake with Eubie! and Fats Waller with Ain’t Misbehavin’. This concert will chart the history of these shows and give you the chart-topping songs from these shows, as well!
