Join us for an unforgettable one-night-only gala performance celebrating the life and music of Alan Jay Lerner on the centennial anniversary of his birth.
Featuring performances by Jeremy Irons, Melissa Errico, James Barbour, Stephen Bogardus, John Cudia, John Cullum, Donna Kane, Maryann Plunkett, David Staller, and more!
Tony, Emmy, and Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons will join a host of Broadway stars, a live orchestra, and a full chorus in unearthing rarely-heard gems and revisiting long-time favorites from Alan Jay Lerner’s most celebrated musicals, including Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, Gigi, Camelot, and My Fair Lady, all written with Frederick Loewe. Two-time Tony winner John Cullum, an original cast member for Lerner musicals Camelot and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (originating the role of Dr. Mark Bruckner), will join the celebration to perform and to share stories about the creation of some of Lerner’s most renowned musicals.
Finally, enjoy a special preview of Irish Rep’s upcoming revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, by Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane, as Tony-nominated actors Melissa Errico and Stephen Bogardus take the stage to perform selections from this highly anticipated show!
