The Phantom will haunt Town Hall this spring! The Broadway casts of The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago, as well as the off-Broadway hit Avenue Q, will perform as part of a concert celebrating the famed New York City venue on March 28. Spotlight on Town Hall will commemorate Town Hall’s new designation as a National Historic Landmark Site. Tickets for the free event will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
In addition to Phantom, Chicago and Avenue Q, the concert will include performances by The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Town Hall Broadway’s Rising Stars Chorus. Additional performers will be announced shortly.
Town Hall first opened to the public on January 12, 1921, and has hosted a variety of artistic and political figures, including Eleanor Roosevelt, German composer Richard Strauss, Marian Anderson, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, President Barack Obama, Woody Allen, John Grisham, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Billy Joel, Liza Minnelli, Bruce Springsteen and Whitney Houston, who performed at the venue for the first time at age 14.
