On Sunday, May 11th, 2014 at 7:00pm, BroadwayWorld.com will continue its 2014 concert series at legendary cabaret venue Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, hosting an all-star tribute concert and benefit celebrating the music of incomparable multi-award-winning composer Jule Styne, while also honoring Mother's Day and raising funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Following the sold-out success of BROADWAYWORLD.COM VISITS OZ, and FLY: A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO DAMON INTRABARTOLO earlier this year, this next event in the ongoing series will be an evening directed by BroadwayWorld's own Pat Cerasaro, creator of the popular InDepth InterView series and a wide range of other innovative content for the site, with music direction by Broadway and cabaret veteran Phil Hall.
Jule Styne is a Tony Award- and Academy Award-winning composer known for writing over 1500 songs over the course of his career, including scores for such notable Broadway musicals as GYPSY, FUNNY GIRL, GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, PETER PAN, BELLS ARE RINGING, DO RE MI, SUGAR and HALLELUJAH, BABY! Teaming with lyricist Sammy Cahn in the 1940s, he also created a string of Hit Parade leaders and chart-topping hits, including the Oscar-winning "Three Coins In The Fountain" besides many hits culled from his film, TV and theatre scores. In addition to Sammy Cahn, Styne's illustrious collaborators include Stephen Sondheim, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Bob Merrill, Leo Robin and E.Y. Harburg, with their combined efforts over the years having produced such unforgettable showstopping standards as "Everything's Coming Up Roses", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Let Me Entertain You", "The Party's Over", "People", "Never Never Land", "Just In Time", and "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", just to name a few - many of which will be performed in this sure-to-be spectacular Mother's Day fundraising event.
