Three-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters stars in A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, a collaboration between Tony-winning composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and jazz musician-composer Wynton Marsalis, which begins its limited engagement at New York City Center Nov. 13.
Directed by Tony winner John Doyle and choreographed by Parker Esse, this Encores! Special Event plays the famed Manhattan venue through Nov. 17.
Conceived by Peter Gethers, Jack Viertel and Doyle, the musical event features Sondheim's music arranged and performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Marsalis. David Loud is the musical supervisor.
A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, presented by the combined forces of City Center’s Encores! program and Jazz at Lincoln Center, "celebrates love in New York and love of New York. Native Manhattanite Sondheim and adopted citizen Marsalis (originally from New Orleans) will compare musical notes on their shared passion for our city," according to press notes.
The program features more than two-dozen Sondheim compositions, each piece newly re-imagined by Marsalis.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
