Final Opportunity to Stream Celebrating Broadway's Best Concert for Free

Great Performances, the acclaimed performing arts series on PBS, celebrated its 50th anniversary season this year with a star-studded musical revue titled "Celebrating 50 Years of Broadway's Best", which premiered May 12 on the channel.

The program featured a range of songs by legendary Broadway composers such as Stephen Schwartz, Kander & Ebb, Fats Waller, Stephen Sondheim, Duke Ellington, and Andrew Lloyd Webber. 

Broadway fans have just a couple more days to stream the concert for free before it leaves the Great Performance streaming platform.



Hosted by Sutton Foster, a two-time Tony winner, the revue is directed and choreographed by Tony winner Warren Carlyle, with Patrick Vaccariallo serving as music director.

The show highlights milestone Broadway productions from 1973 to 2023, offering a glimpse into the evolution of contemporary Broadway.

The show was filmed live in March at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater, with the full recording still available to stream free through the Great Performances website until June 9, 2023.



The program features a range of performances, including a tap number from Jelly’s Last Jam performed by Corbin Bleu, a tribute to “A Chorus Line” featuring Tony-winning original cast member Donna McKechnie joined by Robyn Hurder, and the original “Wiz” André De Shields performing “So You Wanted To See The Wizard.” Sara Bareilles will perform "She Used to Be Mine," while Chita Rivera will sing her signature song "All That Jazz" from Chicago.

In addition to the performances mentioned above, the program also features appearances by a range of Broadway stars, including Shoshana Bean, Raúl Esparza, James Monroe Iglehart, Ledisi, Norm Lewis, Rob McClure, Patina Miller, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Jessie Mueller, Mamie Parris, Solea Pfeiffer, Britton Smith, Jessica Vosk, and Vanessa Williams.
