Elizabeth Stanley in Broadway at Birdland NYC: "Carried Away" with the songs of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 6, 2015
Posted April 3, 2015
In celebration of On The Town's librettists and original stars, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Elizabeth Stanley, current star of Broadway's On The Town, will pay her homage with a night of song in her cabaret "Carried Away."
In her current On The Town role as the prim--yet man-crazed--anthropologist "Claire de Loone," Stanley personifies "a paradigm of refined comic exaggeration," as The New York Times' Ben Brantley described it.
With two musicals (On The Town and On The Twentieth Century) currently playing on Broadway--right next door to each other!--New York has been "Carried Away" by Comden and Green fever. Stanley will be exploring the rich and varied--and very funny--songbook of Comden and Green, who collaborated with the 20th Century's most iconic Broadway composers, Leonard Bernstein included.
As part of Birdland NYC's "Broadway at Birdland" concert series, Stanley will be joined by special guest star Andrew Rannells (THE BOOK OF MORMON, HEDWIG, and television's GIRLS).
In "Carried Away," Stanley will recount some of the legendary duo's greatest hits, including "Just In Time" and "Make Someone Happy."
