Scott Siegel's Broadway by the Season concert series returns to Merkin Hall for three concerts beginning March 25 at 7:30 PM.

The first concert features Lisa Howard, Jenny Lee Stern, Danny Gardner, Douglas Ladnier, Sophie Rapeijko, Willie Demyan, and The Broadway by the Season Dance Troupe celebrating two different Broadway seasons.

The first half of the evening will spotlight the 1931-1932 season with songs from The Zeigfeld Follies of 1931, Of Thee I Sing, The Band Wagon, and Face the Music. The second half will honor songs born on Broadway during the 1942-1943 season, including tunes from Oklahoma!, Something for the Boys, This Is the Army, and Lady in the Dark.

The April 29 and June 17 concerts will continue the journey through Broadway history with concerts highlighting seasons from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Performers will include Christine Andreas, Tom Wopat, Kenita Miller, Lisa Brescia, Maxine Linehan, William Michals, and more.

Producer Siegel said in an earlier statement, "After 21 years of putting on Broadway by the Year at New York's legendary The Town Hall, it has been great fun to pivot with this new series at Merkin Hall. Broadway's talented stars—singers and dancers—have made this joyful transition with me. Each of last year's shows ended with standing ovations, and we are poised to establish Broadway by the Season as a valuable addition to concert events like City Center's Encores! and the 92nd Street Y's Lyrics & Lyricists. The great legacy of Broadway music will be on full display in our shows this spring at Merkin Hall!"

Merkin Hall is located within the Kaufman Music Center at 129 West 67th Street. To purchase tickets call (212) 501-3330. For series subscriptions email [email protected] or call (212) 365-4345.
