The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that Broadway and concert stage star Daniel Reichard is bringing his popular annual New York City holiday show back to the historic music room. Reichard, who created the role of Bob Gaudio in the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys and currently tours with the vocal group, "The Midtown Men," will play the iconic jazz club for three consecutive nights.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.

After acclaimed performances together across the U.S. and in London, the pair's unscripted evening will include stories LuPone hasn't talked about anywhere else and would share only at the prompting of Rudetsky. Proceeds from the event will benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.

Visual artist and activist Ai Weiwei and Pritzker Prize-winning architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron collaborate on a new site-specific commission that leverages both the vast scale of the Park Avenue Armory's drill hall and its history as a public meeting space. Exploring the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world, the installation references the story of Hansel and Gretel, in which children lose their way and feel a sense of menace in a space they know and trust. The artists take advantage of the architecture of the drill hall — its openness and 80-foot height — to create a disconcerting environment with an unexpected entrance wherein every movement is tracked and surveyed by drones and communicated to an unknown public. Accompanying this installation will be talks and programs by artists, philosophers, and activists.
Hansel & Gretel builds on a legacy of over 15 years of collaboration among Weiwei, Herzog, and de Meuron, who have worked together on such design projects as the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion and the National Stadium in Beijing, created for the 2008 Summer Olympics and nicknamed the "Bird's Nest" for its façade of interwoven steel.
