Aaron Tveit will be making his Carnegie Hall debut at the New York Pops event, to be held April 28th. The evening will celebrate composer, lyricist, and arranger Marc Shaiman and director, lyricist, and writer Scott Wittman — the talents behind Catch Me If You Can, which starred Aaron in its Seattle and Broadway runs. Under the direction of Steven Reineke, singers will perform highlights of Shaiman and Wittman’s career at the prestigious New York venue.
Following the concert, a black tie dinner dance will be held at Mandarin Oriental New York.
The lineup for the event is quite impressive, featuring some powerhouse Broadway stars. Along with Aaron, the following are currently slated to appear: Nikki Blonsky, Christian Borle, Laura Bell Bundy, Megan Hilty, Will Chase, Linda Hart, Capathia Jenkins, Jane Krakowski, Ricki Lake, Jenifer Lewis, Patti LuPone, Andrea Martin, Katharine McPhee, Martin Short, John Pizzarelli, Corey Reynolds, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Catch Me co-star Kerry Butler.
Tickets are still currently available at Carnegie Hall’s website, starting at $31 and ranging up to $158. Dinner dance tickets can still be locked down at the New York Pops’ website; however, expect to pay a bit more. For those who can’t attend the event, consider visiting the NYP website and sending a tax-deductible donation to the organization to show your support.
