WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From the dynamic rhythms of West Side Story to the brashness of sailors on leave in On the Town and the sweet duets of New York newcomers in Wonderful Town, Leonard Bernstein's Broadway musicals ran the gamut. The New York Philharmonic's New Year's Eve celebration toasts the composer's 100th birthday with musical favorites, led by the engaging conductor and raconteur Bramwell Tovey. New Year's Eve: Bernstein on Broadway features vocalists and Broadway bigwigs Annaleigh Ashford, Christopher Jackson, Laura Osnes, and Aaron Tveit. The concert is to be telecast nationally on Live From Lincoln Center.
