Lyrics by Lee

Steve Ross and Max St. James return to the Bruno Walter Auditorium with yet another in-depth excursion into the world of classic Broadway musicals. This time Steve and Max along with their illustrious guest stars proudly celebrate the achievements of legendary lyricist Lee Adams. Supported by some of the freshest young talent around, this distinguished group will perform songs from the canon of Lee and his life-long partner Charles Strouse including (but not limited to)  numbers  from “Bye, Bye, Birdie,’ “Applause,” “Golden Boy,” “It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane…It’s Superman,” “All American” as well as his latest show “Marty.” As always the evening will be sprinkled with fascinating, behind-the-scenes stories illuminating the creative process. So put on a happy face and enjoy this special tribute.
