Bryan Perri and ACT of CT Present Broadway Unplugged
Come Hang Out with Broadway Star Elizabeth Stanley on August 24 at 8PM!
Ridgefield, Conn. (August 15, 2018) – Bryan Perri, ACT of Connecticut’s resident Music Supervisor and Broadway Music Director, is bringing his favorite Broadway singers, songs, and stories to his hometown of Ridgefield!
Mr. Perri, the music director and conductor of Wicked at the Gershwin Theater, has invited his Broadway friends to help him present an ongoing series of one-of-a-kind evenings of great conversation, behind-the-scenes stories, and—of course—extraordinary music. Perri has chosen, in his own words, “people of incredible talent, who are incredibly human, and whom I’m incredibly excited to share with Ridgefield.”
The inaugural Broadway Unplugged will feature the charming Elizabeth Stanley, who most recently worked with Mr. Perri as the lead in the world premiere of Alanis Morrisette’s Broadway-bound Jagged Little Pill at the American Repertory Theatre. Her previous Broadway and National Tour credits include On the Town, Cry-Baby, Million Dollar Quartet, The Bridges of Madison County, and Xanadu. Ms. Stanley is also a concert soloist and sings with symphonies across the country.
Of the upcoming gig, Ms. Stanley says, “I am really looking forward to hanging out with Bryan Perri again! His musicianship is so sexy and he always makes me laugh—what a combo! I know that we’ll be sharing our ‘hang’ with an audience, but what I love about this intimate series is that it allows for a very spontaneous, living room/summer cocktail party kind of vibe. Audiences can expect to hear everything from Sondheim to rock ’n’ roll, as well as a few crazy stories about my life onstage and off!”
