Tony nominee Jenn Colella (Come From Away, High Fidelity), Jarrod Spector (The Cher Show, Jersey Boys), Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen), and David Larsen (Hands on a Hardbody) will join Tony-nominated librettist Amanda Green for her June 17 installment of Amanda Green AF* at Birdland.
Amanda Green AF*, otherwise known as *And Friends (Wait, what did you think it was?), launched a monthly engagement at Birdland last fall and features a rotating lineup of guest stars. Musical direction is by James Sampliner with Damien Bassman on drums.
Show time is 7:30 PM.
The concerts promise an evening of “funny and moving songs, including special previews of her up and coming shows.” Green is currently writing lyrics for Billy Crystal's stage adaptation of Mr. Saturday Night, featuring music by Jason Robert Brown. Her credits also include Hands on a Hardbody, Bring It On, High Fidelity, and the current revival of Kiss Me, Kate.
