Blending the intimacy of a cabaret with Broadway's razzle dazzle, each episode will feature one of these performers illuminating their musical journey to stardom, revisiting favorite songs, and offering glimpses of future projects. The performances, which will include appearances from additional guest stars, will be filmed in front of audiences at The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center in December 2017, and air on PBS nationwide in 2018.
"It's thrilling to collaborate with PBS on showcasing four of the most exciting stars currently working on Broadway, and members of the Live From Lincoln Center family, through this project," said Andrew C. Wilk, executive producer of Live From Lincoln Center. "I know how extraordinary Stephanie, Sutton, Leslie, and Andrew are as performers and people, and we are looking forward to shining the spotlight on both of these aspects and the magic of their performances up-close through this series."
Andrew Rannells (Girls, Tony nomination for The Book of Mormon) and Stephanie J. Block (Wicked, Tony nomination for The Mystery of Edwin Drood) both starred in this fall's upcoming broadcast of Falsettos, earning Tony Award nominations for their performances. Sutton Foster (Tony Award-winner for Anything Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie) was a featured performer in Live From Lincoln Center's "SINATRA: Voice for a Century," which aired on PBS in December 2015. Leslie Odom Jr. won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Aaron Burr in Hamilton.
