This Week on Broadway for July 8, 2012: Epiphany — We Love William Michals

William goes to Houston on September 2 to resume rehearsals for the My Fair Lady tour (LCT version).

Last night, William performed at 54 Below (54 SINGS BROADWAY’S GREATEST HIT SONGS!–JULY 10 AT 9:45 PM), and also on July 4, with Scott Siegel‘s various programs

Previous volumes of this Scott Siegel Concert Event hit Feinstein’s/54 Below like lightning! This was the show that every musical theater-lover had been waiting for… And now we’re going to do it again, with a brand-new line-up of Broadway’s Greatest Hit Songs!

If you skip through cast albums just to hear the very best songs in each show, this is the nightclub concert event for you. If you love the classics of the Great White Way, come and hear the songs that made Broadway great, that made your heart soar, that you used to sing (maybe still do) in the shower! But at Feinstein’s/54 Below, you will hear the greatest Broadway songs of all time performed by today’s greatest stars, singing them straight up, the way you want to hear them!

And who better to produce/direct/host this show than the creator of Town Hall’s critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year series, Scott Siegel, creator of more than 200 major concert events centered on Broadway music! 54 Sings Broadway’s Greatest Hit Songs will be a thrilling night that you won’t forget…

Featuring Lianne Marie Dobbs, John Easterlin, Ali Ewoldt, William Michals, Albert Nelthropp, and Meaghan Sands

He is performing in concert “William Michals Broadway in Concert“ in August in New Jersey.
