On Monday, November 2, nearly two dozen Broadway stars will use one of their few days off to preform in a very special event, Broadway Sings Sara Bareilles at The Highline Ballroom (431 W. 16th Street). Performers will present the Grammy nominated singer-songwriter’s work in unique arrangements and orchestrations while backed by a full jazz band.
