‘Broadway's Hot Tonight’
AOG hosts Hilsabeck and friends Friday night
Arts On Grand will host old friend Evan Hilsabeck while he entertains on piano, joined by several special musical friends, for “Broadway’s Hot Tonight” at 7 p.m. Friday.
America between the wars — when Broadway, Tin Pan Alley and the jazz craze swept American musical life from coast to coast — will feature musical hits like “Show Boat,” “Strike up the Band,” “Porgy and Bess” and “Anything Goes.” Broadway composers were kings of popular music. “Broadway’s Hot Tonight” will feature the show tunes which are still hummed today, some shows that really flopped, and stories of the stars, composers and theaters that created it all.
Hilsabeck will be joined by Sam Aalberts, Blake Carlson, Katie Kardell, Luke Miller, Allison Oyler and Jessica Schable.
