Tony Award nominee Liz Larsen (The Most Happy Fella), Drama Desk Award nominee Garrett Long (South Pacific, The Spitfire Grill), Bruce Vilanch (Hairspray, “Hollywood Squares”) and KT Sullivan (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes) are among the artists featured in UnsungMusicalsCo.’s one-night-only benefit concert of the 1935 musical revue At Home Abroad Oct. 15.
At Home Abroad, which kicks off the company’s season at the Peter Norton Symphony Space, is directed by UMC artistic director Ben West. Written by Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz, the work has been newly restored and adapted from the original manuscripts. Show time is 7:30 PM.
Also in the cast are Chris Hoch (La Cage aux Folles, Shrek The Musical), Michael Mastro (Twelve Angry Men), Pilin Anice (Junie B. Jones), Cicily Daniels (The Little Mermaid), Tim Falter (Some Like It Hot), Nadine Isenegger (42nd Street), Matthew LaBanca (Young Frankenstein), Kristin Maloney (The Talk of the Town), Brent McBeth (White Christmas), Jim Middleton (Goodspeed’s 1776), Kevin Vortmann (A Little Night Music), Tiffany Westlie (The Truth About Jane), Julie Halston (Anything Goes, The Divine Sister), Christine Pedi (Forbidden Broadway), Noah Racey (Curtains, Never Gonna Dance), Margaret Colin (The Columnist, Defiance, Arcadia), Fred Berman (The Lion King), Rachel de Benedet (Catch Me If You Can), Amy Hohn (November), Catherine LeFrere (The Judy Holliday Story), Greg Roderick (South Pacific), Tony Award nominee Dick Scanlan (Thoroughly Modern Millie), Natalie Venetia Belcon (Avenue Q, Once on This Island, Rent) and Laura Woyasz (Wicked).
Here’s how the concert is billed: “Captained by a terrifically tactless American tourist, At Home Abroad is a wonderfully satirical musical cruise assaulting every port from the French Riviera to the islands of Japan. This stylish entertainment sets sail for hilarity with such standards as ‘What a Wonderful World,’ ‘Love is a Dancing Thing’ and ‘Got a Bran’ New Suit.’ UMC’s concert event is conceived and staged as a live broadcast of a 1930s radio special, complete with a live jazz trio and a series of tap dance specialties. The UMC production is the first time the revue will be seen in over 70 years.”
Other members of the creative team include choreographer Rommy Sandhu and lighting designer Joe Hodge. Musical direction and arrangements are by Fran Minarik.
UnsungMusicalsCo. Inc., under the artistic direction of West, is a not-for-profit production company dedicated to the “preservation of musical theatre through the restoration and presentation of obscure but artistically sound works.”
The Peter Norton Symphony Space is located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street.

PROVINCETOWN â€” It was a long, fun-filled night for Whoopi Goldberg and Bruce Vilanch, who received more standing ovations than anyone could count as they repeatedly brought down the house. After two back-to-back, 90-minute comedy concerts that sold out Town Hall Sunday, Vilanch and Goldberg practically propped each other up as Goldberg received the 2012 Provincetown Care Award in honor of her commitment to raising awareness for and improving womenâ€™s health.
Shawn Nightingale Productions and Provincetown Cares worked together to put on the event, which raised money for the organization that promotes research, education, screening and treatment for breast cancer and other health issues for women.
Stars Are Out Tonight series
Â byÂ The StaffÂ onÂ July 12, 2012Â
If thereâ€™s a writer for the stars more famous than Bruce Vilanch, we havenâ€™t heard of him. Bette Midler, Robin Williams, Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal . . . and most hosts on more Oscar telecasts than we have time to list. He also wrote the legendaryStar Wars Holiday Special.
This week, Vilanch is bringing his stand-up act (which he insists is â€œnot an actâ€) to the Mansion of Saratoga Springs, as the first performer in the Stars Are Out Tonight series.
As one Denver-based critic descibed his act, â€œnothing stings or feels mean. His humor is all about being an insider and sharing anecdotes about the foibles of working in show business.â€
Bruce Vilanch will perform July 18 (Wednesday) and July 19 at 8 PM as part of the Stars Are Out Tonight series at the Mansion of Saratoga Springs (801 Route 29, Rock City Falls). For more info, call 885-1607 or visit themansionsaratoga.com.
