Online Concert Series to Star Broadway Leading Ladies
The Seth Concert Series will continue its successful run in the next three weeks with Broadway stars Liz Callaway, Stephanie J. Block, and Rachel Bay Jones.
The Seth Concert Series is a weekly virtual series based on musical director and Sirius XM star Seth Rudetsky’s “Broadway @ the Art House” concerts that began in Provincetown. The original event is entering its tenth anniversary season and is currently housed in more than a dozen major venues worldwide.
The virtual series was launched on May 31 with Tony-winner Kelli O’Hara, followed by performances by Jeremy Jordan, Jessie Mueller, Lea Salonga, Melissa Errico, Audra McDonald, Norm Lewis, Megan Hilty, and Cheyenne Jackson.
Each episode is hosted by Rudetsky himself and features a unique combination of memorable performances as well as insightful, revealing, and hilarious anecdotes from the artist’s illustrious careers. The Seth Concert Series is sponsored by BroadwayWorld and StreamYard.
