Side Story. Candide. On the Town. Leonard Bernstein composed
some of the most memorable scores of his generation — but who was the man
behind the music? Join us for a thought-provoking evening of Bernstein
songs and stories in this edition of Conversations
in Concert, hosted by theater insider Ted Chapin.
Lenny’s daughter, Jamie Bernstein, will pull back the curtain of her
father’s complex persona, sharing intimate moments and childhood memories
from her book, Famous
Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein.
Jazz pianist Bill Charlap & the Bill Charlap Trio will be on hand to
perform your favorite Bernstein classics, including “Tonight,” “Maria,”
“Wrong Note Rag” and “Never Land.”
Don’t miss this joyful tribute to America’s most iconic composer-conductor.
