WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A musical journey from jazz pianist and leader of a much-in-demand jazz trio to legendary Broadway composer, more than anyone else Cy Coleman brought the sound of big, brassy jazz to the Great White Way. One only need think of Sweet Charity's "Hey, Big Spender," and its bright blare of horns, to recognize Coleman's signature sound, a musical style that dominated Broadway for more than a generation. Shows like City of Angels, The Life, and many others were permeated by Coleman's propensity for jazz. Michael Feinstein (May 15 only) and James Naughton (May 16 only) lead a cast that illustrates Coleman's profound jazz influence on contemporary Broadway. Featuring Chuck Cooper (Finian's Rainbow, The Life), Michele Lee (Knots Landing, Seesaw), award-winning vocalist Johnny Rodgers, and Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU, Julius Caesar).
