Andrea Martin Hosts Celebration of Jewish Composers

Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Andrea Martin will host One Night Only - The Sequel, a staged celebration of Jewish composers.

"Last year's One Night Only fundraiser was a huge success for the company both artistically and financially. Hearing great songs by Jewish composers sung by some of Toronto's best performers was a fantastic night in the theatre and our audience demanded a sequel," said Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company co-Artistic Director Avery Saltzman, in a statement. "We sold out last year and this year, with Andrea Martin hosting and the cream of the musical theatre again appearing, we anticipate selling out again."

The show features a number of performers, including Adam Brazier (The Women in White on Broadway, The Rocky Horror Show), Lisa Horner (My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, Love, Loss, and What I Wore), Thom Allison (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Shawn Wright (Jersey Boys), Bruce Dow (Stratford Festival's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), Sara Farb (The Sisters Rosensweig), Stephanie Roth (Stratford Festival, The Who's Tommy, Rent), Lily Librach from YTV's The Next Star, Tyler Murree (Disney's The Lion King, Lord of the Rings), and more.

The show will be staged at the Jane Mallett Theatre in the St. Lawrence Centre For The Arts on Monday, Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are priced between $118 and $154.
