(DEAL PARK, NJ) -- Celebrate the greatest songs of Broadway and Hollywood with two-time Tony Award nominee Kate Baldwin and Broadway and television star Aaron Lazar as they return to the Axelrod Performing Arts Center on Saturday, October 14, 2023 in a special concert with the American Pops Orchestra, conducted by Luke Frazier. Showtime is 8:00pm.

Kate Baldwin (Hello, Dolly!, Big Fish, Finian's Rainbow) and Aaron Lazar (The Light in the Piazza, Fox's Filthy Rich) starred together in the Axelrod’s highly acclaimed 2022 production of The Bridges of Madison County, directed by Hunter Foster. They received national recognition for that production and subsequently went on to two successful concert runs at New York’s famous 54 Below, where critics praised them as "electric," "charming" and one of the "Top 5 shows ever at 54 Below."

Baldwin and Lazar will display their blazing chemistry and close friendship as they reprise their roles as Francesca and Robert with passionate love songs from The Bridges of Madison County, as well as favorites from The Light in the PiazzaFinian’s RainbowCarouselThe Pajama Game and some favorite songs by Stephen Sondheim.

In 2017, Baldwin starred as Irene Molloy opposite Bette Midler, David Hyde Pierce and Gavin Creel in the hit Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, for which she was nominated for the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards. She originated the role of Sandra Bloom in Big Fish on Broadway, and her starring role in the 2009 revival of Finian's Rainbow earned her Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations. She has performed in concert with the New York Pops, Boston Pops, National Symphony, at the Kennedy Center and with the American Songbook series at Lincoln Center.

A native of Cherry Hill, N.J., Lazar made his Broadway debut in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. He starred in Sting and John Logan's The Last ShipLes MisérablesA Tale of Two Cities, Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night MusicThe Light in the Piazza at Lincoln Center and the first national tour of Dear Evan Hansen. On film, he has been seen in Everything Everywhere All at OnceThe Wolf of Wall Street and Avengers: Endgame, along with the television shows YellowstoneThe Good Fight and Quantico.

Inspiring documentary Along the Rail premieres at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival!

Art can portray many things and occupy many mediums. Some artists utilize subjects such as cities, animals, and people. For Craig Wallace Dale, this choice of subject has ranged over the years and currently rests with railroad track graffiti. Jonathan Harkel’s Along the Rail displays and honors this longer-than-three-decade journey.
