“Abud is really delightful… with a winning playfulness.” – Michael Giltz, Huffington Post

“George Abud’s version of ‘Children and Art’ moved me to tears” – Stephen Sondheim

Come back with George Abud as he delves into the rich rarities and forgotten triumphs of America’s musical, theatrical, and comedic treasure chest. Told all too often that he was born in the wrong era, this Broadway Baby shows you why he is right where (and when) he ought to be. Fresh from his main stem debut in The Visit, George is ready to bring his old soul and fresh outlook to the cabaret stage. Celebrating a dazzling mélange of tunes and talents from days past, this show dives into the lesser known gems of Loesser, Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Comden & Green, Kander & Ebb, and many more interspersed with the snappy, sharp wit of the likes of Jack Benny, George Burns, and the Marx Brothers. George will further explore his own unique Lebanese heritage with original arrangements on the Oud, including his now celebrated version of “Children and Art” about which Sondheim said, “I was moved to tears.” Joining him on a swinging song or two will be his dear friends and co-stars from The Visit and Allegro, Tony nominees Mary Beth Peil and Elizabeth A. Davis.
