Broadway Sings Billy Joel
On Monday, February 22, nearly two dozen Broadway stars will use one of their few days off to preform in a very special event, Broadway Sings Billy Joel at The Highline Ballroom (431 W. 16th Street). Performers will present the iconic New Yorker’s work in unique arrangements and orchestrations while backed by a full jazz band.

The Broadway Sings series launched in 2011 by Wicked and Godspell actor Corey Mach. The first edition featured over a dozen Broadway stars singing Adele‘s songs with arrangements by Joshua Stephen Kartes. Mach and Kartes have continued to run the series several times a year, with music from artists ranging from Michael Jackson to P!NK. The most recent edition, Broadway Sings Sara Bareilles was on November 2, 2015, and sold out The Highline Ballroom. Considering Joel’s popularity in New York City (he has performed once a month at Madison Square Garden for two years and counting), this one will likely sell out quickly.

The performers scheduled for Broadway Sings Billy Joel are:

Erich Bergen (Jersey Boys), Corey Cott (Newsies, Gigi), Lilla Crawford (Annie), Kimiko Glenn (Waitress, Orange is the New Black), Betsy Wolfe (Bullets Over Broadway), Gerard Canonico (American Idiot, Spring Awakening), Alysha Deslorieux (Hamilton), Christine Dwyer (Wicked), Mark Evans (Book of Mormon), Sean Grandillo (Spring Awakening), Arielle Jacobs (In the Heights), Grasan Kingsberry (The Color Purple), Brennyn Lark (Les Misérables), Corey Mach (Godspell), Ginna Claire Mason (Wicked), Sydney Morton (Evita), Jake Odmark (Kinky Boots), Ciara Renée (Pippin), Jed Resnick (Avenue Q), Zak Resnick (Mamma Mia), Adam Roberts (Spider-Man), Brandon Rubendall (Anything Goes), Natalie Weiss (Everyday Rapture)
