The New York Pops 31st Birthday Gala

April 30, 2014 • Category: Gallery, General News, Public Appearances 2

On Monday, April 28th, Aaron Tveit made his Carnegie Hall debut! As part of the New York Pops 31st birthday gala, he joined other Broadway veterans – including Patti LuPone and Jane Krakowski – to help celebrate Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, writers of musicals such as Hairspray and Catch Me If You Can.

As the originator of the role Frank Abignale Jr. in Catch Me, Aaron was on hand to perform the show-stopping number, “Goodbye.” His co-stars from that production, Linda Hart and Kerry Butler, were also in attendance. Both women were involved with Hairspray as well, of which the original cast was reunited to perform at the gala. At the end of the evening, everyone joined together to dance and sing along to the infectious “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”


Photos from the gala have been added to the gallery, including Aaron’s red carpet arrival and performance. There are also after party pictures available featuring him mingling with the likes of Matthew Morrison, Christian Borle, Nathan Lane, and Kerry Butler herself.

  1. I have a few pics from the concert and the “stage door” afterwards. Let me know how to get them to you if you would like them.

  2. Judging from the photos (thank you!) looks like Aaron thoroughly enjoyed himself at his Carnegie Hall debut. So happy for him! Am hoping that maybe there will be something on you tube, possibly from the NY Pops in the future???? In any event, so glad he was able to get on stage and sing again … hope he finds more opportunities to sing in public in the near future.
