Two musicals—one that played Broadway and another still in development—will be showcased in early 2018 concert performances at the 92nd Street YM-YWHA in New York City.
Presented as part a two-show series titled A Night at the Theatre with Daryl Roth, the shows include an encore of the 2015 Broadway musical It Shoulda Been You and a glimpse of the in-development musical, Between the Lines. Casts for the two productions will be announced in the coming weeks.
Roth is one of the most active producers on Broadway today. She has co-produced more than five dozen shows since 1991, including Proof; August, Osage County; War Horse; Fish in the Dark; The Humans; Groundhog Day; and the current Kinky Boots and Hello, Dolly!. She also produced the original Broadway run of It Shoulda Been You.
Here are details on the series:
