If you happen to be in NYC, tomorrow, June 2, 2017 head down to the historic Shubert Alley at 44th street for one of my favorite events of the year Broadway Stars In The Alley. It’s a annual free concert put on by the Broadway Alliance. Featuring performances from over 20 different Broadway shows including Groundhog Day, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Get on Your Feet, School of Rock and more. It’s really just an excuse to have a free public dress rehearsal ahead of next week’s Tony Awards. I’m busing up to NYC to catch this event and will have a bunch of cool interviews. Check out this amazing list of talent that’s going to be on hand.
STARS IN THE ALLEY® is proud to announce that 2017 Tony Award® Nominee for Falsettos Brandon Uranowitz will serve as social media correspondent for the 2017 concert. He will be on hand to cover the event live on Twitter and on Instagram bringing fans both exclusive backstage access and a unique perspective on all that’s happening on stage and in the audience this year.
The end of season celebration will also include scheduled appearances by even more 2017 Tony Award nominated performers including: Jenn Colella (Come From Away), Rachel Bay Jones (Dear Evan Hansen), Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), John Douglas Thompson and Ruben Santiago-Hudson (August Wilson’s Jitney), Richard Thomas (The Little Foxes), Eva Noblezada (Miss Saigon), Corey Hawkins (Six Degrees of Separation), Johanna Day and Michelle Wilson (Sweat) as well as performances from 2017 Tony Award-nominated musicals including: Anastasia, Bandstand, Come From Away, Dear Evan Hansen, Groundhog Day the Musical, Miss Saigon, and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.
STARS IN THE ALLEY will take place on Friday, June 2nd at 1:00pm in Broadway’s legendary Shubert Alley, west of Seventh Avenue between 44th & 45th streets. The free outdoor concert with live music, produced by the Broadway League and sponsored by United Airlines, celebrates the end of the 2016-2017 Broadway season and adds to the festivities leading up to the 2017 Tony Awards.
