Broadway is coming to Manhattan Beach.
On Dec. 7, Kingsborough College will host “Sing For Your Supper,” a revue of Broadway numbers from a century of musicals.
The production, which originated at the Kaufman Music Center in Manhattan as part of its “Broadway Close Up” series, features seven Broadway regulars singing numbers by such beloved composers and lyricists as Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, and Rogers and Hart.
Two-by-two and three-by-three, the performers will emerge to sing until the whole gang is on stage, in a show that highlights duets, trios, and ensembles from musicals such as “A Little Night Music,” “West Side Story,” “City of Angels,” “Grease,” and “The Scottsborro Boys.” Broadway buffs may recognize the show’s title as a quartet ditty from the 1938 musical “The Boys from Syracuse.”
“They’re the best duets, quartets, and ensemble numbers from the last 100 years,” said Anna Becker, executive director of On Stage at Kingsborough. “You really get a sense of how each type of song is wonderful.”
The performers themselves are veterans of such shows as “Wicked,” “The Book of Mormon,” and “The Addams Family,” and include Heidi Blickenstaff, Lewis Cleale, Erin Mackey, Mary Michael Patterson, and Matthew Scott.
Scott, who was in the original cast of “Jersey Boys,” is returning to the Kingsborough stage after last appearing in “Noel & Cole In Love,” in 2011. Audiences loved him in that show, said Becker, and Scott said he plans on winning the crowd over once again.
“There’s nothing that I do other than these concerts that is more crowd-pleasing,” said Scott. “These are, without fail, bringing-the-house-down kind of nights.”
“Sing For Your Supper” at Kingsborough College [2001 Oriental Blvd. at Oxford Street in Manhattan Beach, (718) 368–5596, www.onstageatkingsborough.org], Dec. 7 at 8 pm, $30-$35.
