Luck Be a Lady: Megan Hilty Sings Sinatra and More
March 8
Carnegie Hall

The New York Pops continues its 30th season with an evening of swinging favorites in “Luck Be a Lady: Megan Hilty Sings Sinatra and More.” Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke – described by The New York Times as “young and vigorous, with a playful attitude” (and who doesn’t love that?) – will lead the orchestra as it tips its hat to the Rat Pack, Ella Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe and other stars from the golden age of entertainment. The performance features Broadway and TV starlet Megan Hilty and Ryan Silverman, one of Broadway’s favorite leading men. The program will include “Luck Be a Lady,” “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” music from “Smash” and more.

Tickets $18.50 – $112

Broadway Backwards

March 18
Palace Theatre

Broadway Backwards is an annual celebration where gays and lesbians see their stories told through the great songs of musical theater, performed by their favorite Broadway performers. The fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and The Center began as a grassroots concert performed at the Center in 2006. In subsequent years, the event grew quickly, performing off-Broadway, then on Broadway for the last four years.

VIP tickets include premium seats and a special post-show party with the cast. A limited number of “Backstage & Beyond” ticket packages also are available, which include the opportunity to see the dress rehearsal, exclusive backstage access, a “meet and greet” with some of the stars of “Broadway Backwards,” premium seats for the show and more.

Creator Robert Bartley will again direct and choreograph. Amy Jones serves as co-choreographer. Last year’s sold-out show featured dazzling performances from an impressive line-up of stars who collectively boasted three individual Tony Awards and 13 Tony nominations.

Tickets are available exclusively at broadwaycares.org or by calling 212.840.0770, ext. 268. Prices start at $75.
