The 4th Annual Broadway Cabaret Festival concluded on Sunday, October 19th at 3 PM with Broadway Originals! This year, stars from five decades of Broadway history took to the Town Hall stage to perform songs they originated on Broadway or brought back to life in the original cast of a revival. After the concert The Cast took a few short steps next door to Spanky's BBQ for a little post show celebrating, our BroadwayWorld cameras were there to bring you all the fun!

The concert starred Lucie Arnaz (They're Playing Our Song), Kerry Butler (Little Shop of Horrors, Xanadu, Hairspray) Alan Campbell (Sunset Blvd.), Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde), Alice Ripley (Sunset Boulevard, Rocky Horror, The Dead, Side Show, etc.), Alli Mauzey (Cry-Baby), Gary Beach (La Cage aux Folles) Karen Morrow (I Had a Ball), Stephen Mo Hanan (Cats), D'Jamin Bartlett (A Little Night Music), Pam Myers (Company), Chuck Cooper (Caroline or Change), Bobby Steggert (110 in the Shade), Michael Arden (The Times They Are A-Changin'), Rita Gardner (The Fantasticks), Joan Copeland (Pal Joey revival), Jerry Lanning (Mame),Cheryl Freeman (Tommy), Terri White (Barnum) and Liz Callaway (The Look of Love).
