Lincoln Center at Home – Broadway Fridays

 

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel with the New York Philharmonic

Friday, June 5, 2020 at 8 p.m. EDT

Carousel was hailed by Time Magazine as “the best musical of the 20th Century.” The New York Philharmonic presents a stunning staged production of this iconic American work, featuring a star-studded cast including Kelli O'Hara, Nathan Gunn, Stephanie Blythe, Shuler Hensley, Jason Danieley, Jessie Mueller, Kate Burton, John Cullum and New York City Ballet dancers Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck.

Lincoln Center Theater’s production of

The Nance

Friday, June 12, 2020 at 8 p.m. EDT

Tony-Award winner Nathan Lane stars in Douglas Carter Beane’s dark comedy as Chauncey Miles, who faces a changing world and his own self-loathing. The play paints the portrait of a homosexual man, living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of 1930s New York, whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his offstage life. With a touching love story at its core, Lincoln Center Theater’s Tony Award-winning production is also a fond and funny tribute to the golden age of burlesque. In addition to Lane, the cast boasts Tony Award-winner Cady Huffman, Lewis J. Stadlen, Jenni Barber, Andrea Burns, and Jonny Orsini.

Lincoln Center Theater’s production of

Act One

Friday, June 19, 2020 at 8 p.m. EDT

Few have captured the magic of the theater better than Moss Hart, a kid from the Bronx who went on to become a lion of Broadway. Tony-Award winning writer and director James Lapine adapts Hart’s memoir for the stage, and earned a tony award nomination for best play in the process, in this gorgeous Lincoln Center Theater production, creating a world as vivid and transformative as the stage itself. The celebrated cast includes Tony Award winners Tony Shalhoub, Andrea Martin and Santino Fontana.
