Schneider and Feinstein’s/54 Below Programming Director, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, will co-host the evening, introducing performances and anecdotes from some of the show’s original cast and creators.
The works of such artists as Cy Coleman, Marvin Hamlisch, Carolyn Leigh, Richard Maltby Jr, Barry Manilow, Bob Merrill, Harold Rome, David Shire, Charles Strouse, and more, will be featured.
