We celebrated four decades of Marvin Hamlisch’s magnificent memories on Valentine’s Day 2015. Guest Artists: Tony Award winner Donna McKechnie, Tony Award nominee Jodi Benson, and Phantom of the Opera’s Doug LaBrecque paid tribute to the wonderful talents of one of the greatest contributors to music over the last century. As a composer, Hamlisch won virtually every major award: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony, and three Golden Globes. On Broadway, he wrote the music for the long-running show A Chorus Line, They’re Playing Our Song, Sweet Smell of Success, Smile, The Goodbye Girl, and Imaginary Friends. His more than forty motion picture scores include his Oscar-winning score and song for The Way We Were and his adaptation of Scott Joplin’s music for The Sting. This memorable concert will featured music from his vast array of timeless music.
