An Intimate Evening of Song & Spirit
Broadway stars bare their souls, literally, in these 90 minute interviews featuring revealing talk about their formative influences, their life trajectories, and how their careers have been shaped by their spiritual and social/political worldview. Guests will also be invited to perform two or three songs of their choice as part of the evening. The interviews will be conducted by Edward L. Beck, priest, author, playwright and CNN Faith and Religion commentator.
