Max von Essen with Billy Stritch at the Piano!

March 5 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM


Max von Essen, Tony nominee for An American in Paris, takes the Legacy Theatre stage on Sunday, March 5, at 2 p.m. Local audiences will recognize him from his lauded performance as Julian Marsh in 42nd Street at the Goodspeed Opera House last season. Von Essen is joined by Grammy-winning composer and famed musical director Billy Stritch. Their concert, “Call Me Old Fashioned,” embraces a love of the golden age of Broadway and the American Songbook, from the Gershwins to Lerner and Loewe, from An American in Paris to Jersey Boys.
