Diane J. Findlay, Steve Ross, Jane White, and Julie Wilson will be among the performers at Hey, Look Me Over: The Lyrics of Carolyn Leigh, a free program to take place at 6pm on Monday, December 11 at the Bruno Walter Auditorium of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (111 Amsterdam Avenue).

Leigh's family donated her papers to the Library's famed Billy Rose Theatre Collection, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

Leigh, who died in 1983, wrote the lyrics for such shows as Peter Pan, Little Me, Wildcat, and How Now Dow Jones. She also wrote such popular songs as "The Best Is Yet to Come," "How Little We Know," and "Witchcraft." She also contributed to the film scores of The Cardinal and Father Goose.

Other participating artists will be Margery Beddow, George Costacos, Michelle Nicklas, and Sarah Zahn. Ross will also act as the event's musical director.

Tickets will be given out at 4pm on the day of the program; one ticket will be given per person. For more information, call 212-642-0142.
