On November 30, join Broadway legend and famed lyricist Sheldon Harnick with his actress/photographer wife Margery Gray Harnick to present their new book, The Outdoor Museum (not your usual images of NEW YORK) with a special performance by Tony Award nominated actress, Kate Baldwin. The event will take place at the Drama Book Shop (250 W. 40th Street) at 4:30 pm.
The Outdoor Museum salutes little known landmarks, and cultural icons as well as the often overlooked urban scenes--young lovers in front of the Broadhurst Theatre, the magic of reflections on Central Park West, reptiles in the subway mosaics under the Museum of Natural History, etc. Each of Margery’s striking images in duet with Sheldon’s wit, humor and sheer poetry make for an inspiring picture book.
In 2011, Sheldon and Kate Baldwin had previously collaborated on “She Loves Him”, a wonderful CD released by PS Classics, produced by David Frost. The album features many of Sheldon’s most prized works from his extraordinary career, including selections from Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me, and Fiorello! in addition to other unproduced and rarely heard songs. Kate has agreed to lend her voice yet again for the Harnicks latest endeavor, The Outdoor Museum because “She Loves Him”.
There will be a performance, discussion and Q&A of the book, moderated by author & critic David Finkle followed by a book signing.
