Jerry Orbach’s Broadway, feat. William Michals, Jay Aubrey Jones, & more!
July 24, 2023
Join us at 54 as we celebrate Jerry Orbach, the beloved performer who started out Off-Broadway in The Threepenny Opera and The Fantasticks, then went on to become a leading man in such Broadway shows as Carnival, Promises, Promises, Chicago, and 42nd Street before beginning a brilliant final chapter in his career that included work in films and, of course, his iconic television role of Lt. Lennie Briscoe in “Law & Order.”
Our cast is headed by Broadway veterans William Michals (Parade, South Pacific, etc.) and Jay Aubrey Jones (Cats, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), along with rising star Nikita Burshteyn(Romeo & Bernadette, Bernstein on Broadway at 54 Below). Special guests for the evening will be Steven Brinberg, aka “Simply Barbra”; Lee Roy Reams, who co-starred with Jerry Orbach on Broadway in 42nd Street; and Jerry’s sons, Chris Orbach and Tony Orbach. Our show is conceived and directed by Michael Portantiere, with Matthew Martin Ward as musical director/pianist.
