Event Details

November 19, 2016 | 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | Pollak Theatre

Cost: $40; $50; $60 (Gold Circle)

Newly-married Broadway veterans Jarrod Spector and Kelli Barrett are often asked, “What’s it like to be married to a fellow artist?”

Bringing to life the greatest songs birthed from the greatest marriages, the two attempt to answer the question. From Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil and Alan & Marilyn Bergman to Sonny & Cher to Beyonce & Jay-Z, the themes of love, heartbreak, triumph, and despair infuse not only these incredible songs but also the storied partnerships themselves. In an evening filled with humor, heart, and powerhouse vocals, Barrett & Spector celebrate marriage as the driving force behind this timeless music and tackle the difficult questions behind keeping it all together.

Audiences can expect to hear such classics as Bruce Springsteen/Patti Scialfa’s “Because The Night,” Sonny & Cher’s “The Beat Goes On,” Johnny Cash & June Carter’s “Going To Jackson,” The Bergman’s “How Do You Keep The Music Playing” and many more songs written and/or performed by iconic married couples.

Tony Award nominee Jarrod Spector originated the role of Barry Mann in Beautiful. About his 54 Below debut, The New York Times wrote: “Witty, energetic and infused with a jolt of passion!” Jarrod is also known for his vocal prowess in the role of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, which he played on Broadway.

Kelli Barrett recently originated the leading role of Lara in Broadway’s Doctor Zhivago. She has also appeared on Broadway in Wicked, Baby It’s You!, and The Royal Family.
