Broadway Stars Launch Exclusive Web Concert Specials

Friday Dec 13, 2013

When Sutton Foster (2-time Tony Winner for "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and "Anything Goes" and star of TV's "Bunheads"), Patti LuPone (2-time Tony Winner for "Evita" and "Gypsy" and star of TV's "American Horror Story") and Megan Mullally (2-time Emmy-winning star of TV's "Will & Grace" and star of Broadway's "Young Frankenstein" and "Grease") each agreed to do a rare, new 90 minute concert / interview / comedy specials -- to be aired exclusively online -- they did so at the request of one special man.

Each of the leading ladies had also recently performed equally rare, intimate, sold-out concerts with him for the acclaimed "Broadway @ The Art House" series in Provincetown, MA over the past year. Series host and pianist Seth Rudetsky, the multi-hyphenate Sirius/XM Radio Star-musician-comedian-author, whom the New York Times dubbed "The Mayor of Broadway," convinced each of the superstars to present these special performances as filmed concerts, exclusively through SethTV, his own, new web-television network. All three concerts are now available to purchase on the site, with Foster's having just launched over this Thanksgiving weekend.

What perhaps differentiates these TV specials from others is the seamless mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from three of TV and Broadway's brightest stars -- prompted by the encyclopedic-minded Rudetsky's probing, funny, revealing questions -- and their stellar singing of unique repertoire. If there are stories from Sutton Foster, Patti LuPone and Megan Mullally's TV, film & Broadway careers that you've always wanted to hear them tell, and songs that you've always wanted to hear them sing... chances are, that you'll see and hear them here (and possibly only here) on SethTV's "An Evening With..." series of concert specials. Coming soon in the web series are reportedly concert specials from Audra McDonald, Christine Ebersole, and Chita Rivera, among others yet to be announced.

Sutton Foster starred on Broadway in "The Will Rogers Follies," "Grease," "The Scarlet Pimpernel," "Annie," and "Les Misérables" before her big break and Tony Award-winning performance in "Thoroughly Modern Millie." She has since then originated roles in the Broadway productions of "Little Women," "The Drowsy Chaperone," "Young Frankenstein," and "Shrek the Musical."

Patti LuPone won her second Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, as well Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, for her performance as Rose in the most recent Broadway production of "Gypsy," and created the title role in "Evita" on Broadway with her now legendary performance, for which she won her first Tony and Drama Desk Awards.

Megan Mullally is best known for playing the iconic role of Karen Walker on "Will & Grace", for which she won two Emmy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and four consecutive Golden Globe Award nominations. She made her Broadway debut as Marty in the 1994 revival of "Grease" with Rosie O'Donnell, and next appeared as Rosemary in the hit 1995 revival of "How to Succeed..." opposite Matthew Broderick.

Broadway favorite Seth Rudetsky has taken another entertainment leap. The SiriusXM radio host, novelist, Broadway actor/pianist, Playbill columnist, Grammy nominee, award-winning comic, and Emmy-nominated writer recently added "television mogul" to that long list, with the launch of www.SethTV.com, his new, web-based entertainment network. Go behind-the-scenes of the Broadway ringmaster's a-MAH-zing life with original shows, celebrity concerts and more. You never know what the stars will say or do...or sing on Seth TV.
