Mar 1: American Showstoppers: AN EVENING OF JERRY HERMAN, featuring the Fred Barton Orchestra
On Saturday evening, March 1st at 7:30pm Pace University will present American Showstoppers, with the 13 piece Fred Barton Orchestra, AN EVENING OF JERRY HERMAN. The evening is directed and choreographed by Scott Thompson and produced, orchestrated and hosted by Fred Barton. Herman’s epic contributions to Broadway and Hollywood will be celebrated in an evening exploring his career from his early revue days to his heyday of mega-musicals such as HELLO DOLLY!, MAME, DEAR WORLD, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, MACK AND MABEL, and many more.
Fred Barton's orchestrations are played regularly at Carnegie Hall and by symphony orchestras around the country and Canada. He's conducted Broadway and national tour productions of City of Angels, Hal Prince's Cabaret, Zorba with Anthony Quinn, and Camelot with Robert Goulet. He was co-creator of the original Forbidden Broadway, and for television co-composed "The Magic Schoolbus," orchestrated and conducted "Wonder Pets!," and music-supervised "HBO's Cathouse: The Musical" and the children's show "Olivia."
