Broadway Unplugged

Carolee Carmello was a no show. So was Marc Kudisch. But this year's "Broadway Unplugged" concert - where performers must sing without the aid of electronic amplification - was offered a generous amount of Broadway talent.

The real highlight was Patrick Page (no longer in the ugly Green Goblin suit) hamming it up as Oscar Jaffe in "The Legacy" from "On the 20th Century" and doing an imitation Noel Coward in "Mrs. Worthington." Some much appreciated rarities included Chuck Cooper doing "Stand Up and Fight" from "Carmen Jones" and Bill Daugherty portraying Ed Koch's idea of a New Yorker in "You Can Be a New Yorker Too!" from the Charles Strouse flop "Mayor." And in a most unusual touch, host Scott Siegel chanted a Hebrew prayer at the very start to bless the evening.

Here is a full songlist:
