Saturday Special - At This Performance
In November, we had the opportunity to attend our second At This Performance, a concert of Broadway Standbys, Understudies and Alternates. At this version of At This Performance which was held on November 7, we saw the following performers:
Maddie Shea Baldwin- Bright Star understudy
Stephen Cerf - Jersey Boys understudy
Max Chernin - Bright Star understudy
Jeremiah James - Robber Bridegroom understudy
Freddie Kimmel - Cagney understudy
Claudia Yanez - Spamilton understudy
Remy Zaken - Dear Evan Hansen understudy
All of these performers were very talented. We would be happy to see any of them performing in a show. There actually have been performers who have appeared in one of the At This Performance concerts who later went on to star in a Broadway show including Alex Brightman who recently ended his run as the original Dewey Finn in School of Rock.
If you live in or plan on travelling to the New York area and you want a chance to see some of these talented performers strut their stuff, the Spring 2017 season of At This Performance will run on Sunday March 5, Monday March 20, and Sunday April 2. Who knows, maybe you'll get to see the next breakout star! For more information go to http://www.musicalstonight.org/concerts.html.
Tune in tomorrow for this week's Sunday Scoop.
