Carnegie Hall Presents

The Originals

It takes something special to be deemed an original, a quality that is truly fresh and inventive. This season, this popular series raises the curtain on several original icons of the Great White Way and the Great American Songbook, with performances by Broadway luminaries Patti LuPone and Kristin Chenoweth, as well as famed cabaret crooner Michael Feinstein.
