On October 28th at 8pm, BroadwayUnderstudies.com has once again invited some of Broadway's most talented understudies to the stage of the Laurie Beechman Theatre to share their rare talent-the ability to perform at a second's notice. They'll be thrown into the fire in "Half Hour 2: A Last Minute Concert," a show where even they don't know what they'll be singing before they step up to the microphone. The audience will get to vote on what song each performer will sing.
Performers include: Nikki Bohne (Bring it On), Joanne Borts (Once), Joe Carroll (Once), Ariana DeBose (Bring it On), Brandon Ellis (Once), Kate Fahrner (Wicked), Jenny Florkowski (Wicked), David Hull (Wicked), Jesse JP Johnson (Wicked), Janet Krupin (Bring it On), Eddie Pendergraft (Wicked), Teddy Toye (Bring it On), and J Michael Zygo (Once). F. Michael Haynie (Wicked) will serve as guest host for the evening.
The concert is produced by Shoshana Feinstein with musical direction by Benjamin Rauhala, and will feature Jeremy Yaddaw on drums and Charlie Rosen on bass.
Cover charge is $15 with a $15 food/drink minimum. Call (212) 695-6909 to make reservations.
