UnsungMusicalsCo. launches its Unsung Cabaret Series with Unsung Jimmy Van Heusen, an intimate evening that celebrates the centennial of four-time Academy Award-winning and three-time Tony Award-nominated composer Jimmy Van Heusen (Skyscraper, Walking Happy, Thoroughly Modern Millie), June 17 at The Cutting Room.
Interspersed with such Van Heusen standards as “The Tender Trap," “Call Me Irresponsible” and “Moonlight Becomes You," the evening showcases the little-known gems from his five Broadway musicals and his fabled Johnny Burke & Bing Crosby song series, "The Flop Parade."
UMC artistic director Ben West directs the concert with musical direction and arrangements by Benet Braun and lighting design by Joe Hodge.
Tickets ($30 general admission, with limited premium seating available for $60) are available by visiting www.ticketfly.com. The Cutting Room is located at 44 East 32nd Street in New York City. For more information, visit UnsungMusicals.org.
