As part of their series Live from Lincoln Center, PBS has released the air dates for the Stars in Concert series. The series will include special one-hour concert performances from Broadway stars Sutton Foster, Leslie Odom Jr., Stephanie J. Block, and Andrew Rannells.
It’s shaping up to be a Kristin Chenoweth week on TV and we have no problem with that. The Emmy and Tony Award-winner has released her new album “Coming Home” and promoting it on the “TODAY Show” Wednesday, plus twice on Thursday on “Live! with Kelly and Michael” and “Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda” (all with performances). Yeah!
And it continues after that. Click here to see more TV and radio dates.
If you missed “The Nance,” starring the incomparable Nathan Lane Friday night on PBS Channel 13, you can watch it now on the station’s website by clicking here.
Nominated for three Tony Awards, Douglas Carter Beane’s celebrated play is both a love letter to the grand old days of burlesque and a love story before its time. Nathan Lane gives the performance of a lifetime as Chauncey Miles, a burlesque comedian caught between the tug of his heart, the calling of his art, and the increasingly harsh realities of Depression Era politics and mores.
New TV shows and returning series used to be a big deal every Fall when I was growing up. Not so much any more with cable introducing new shows year-round and Netflix releasing entire series in one day. We can still count on PBS and Lincoln Center to come up with a Fall spectacular and it’s a New York Philharmonic concert version of Stephen Sondheim’s bloody musical “Sweeney Todd” airing 9-11:30 p.m. today (Sept. 26) on Channel 13 in New York.
