The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Jeff Harnar sings 'The 1959 Broadway Songbook' is a celebration of the 21 musicals you could have seen in New York that year, some brand new ('The Sound of Music', 'Gypsy', 'Flower Drum Song', 'Fiorello') and some still running from previous seasons ('My Fair Lady', 'West Side Story', 'The Music Man', 'Bells Are Ringing').  The structure of the show is itself an homage to the Golden Age of Broadway with a 'boy meets girl' narrative, an 'Overture', an 'Entr’Acte' and an 'Intermission' that toasts other cultural highlights of 1959.  Music Director Alex Rybeck and Director Sara Louise Lazarus.

“Dear Jeff, Thank you so much for the 1959 Broadway Songbook – it’s wonderful! I’d love to see 1960, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66… coming out of your talented mouth.”
