A slew of Broadway stars including Alice Ripley, Chad Kimball and Beth Leavel will take part in Town Hall’s eighth annual Broadway Cabaret Festival. The festival, which takes place over three consecutive weeks, kicks off with Linda Eder: A New Life on October 13, followed by Broadway Originals! on October 21 and The Best of Broadway by the Year on October 26.
Broadway belter Linda Eder stars in Linda Eder: A New Life, a tribute to the “songbirds” who have greatly influenced Eder, as well as her favorite contemporary artists. Eder will be joined by her original Jekyll & Hyde co-stars Robert Cuccioli and Christiane Noll.
Broadway Originals! features an afternoon of songs and memories with Broadway stars reprising songs they introduced either in an original Broadway production or an original Broadway cast revival. The concert will feature Kimball, Ripley, Matt Cavenaugh, Bob Martin, Karen Ziemba, Tovah Feldshuh and Mandy Gonzalez, with additional cast members to be announced.
Created, written and hosted by Scott Siegel, The Best of Broadway by the Year will feature Leavel, Kerry O’Malley, Karen Akers, Lari White, Christine Andreas, William Michals, Christina Bianco, Carole J. Bufford, Jeffry Denman and Noah Racey. The actors will perform the most popular showstoppers from the long-running Town Hall series.
