Senior Happening: Fred Miller Presents: "The Last Lions of Broadway"

The Livingston Public Library invites the public to our Fall Senior Happening series on Friday, November 15th when Fred Miller presents his Lecture-in-Song, “The Last Lions of Broadway”. Mr. Miller returns to the Senior Happening having performed many of his shows here previously. The Golden Age of Broadway [and American Popular Song in general] seemed to be breathing its last in the late 50s/early 60s with the passing of Rodgers & Hammerstein and Lerner & Loewe. However, two careers were just beginning at that time, and it’s fair to say that Cy Coleman and Jerry Herman managed to add several decades of upbeat, melodic Musical Theatre magic for the masses. 

Mr. Miller is the founder of the Copper Penny Players, a singing class for amateurs that has been operating for the past quarter century. He has experience in many different musical fields, including opera, comedy and piano music. There are now more than seventy Lecture-in-Song programs that he performs around New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The Senior Happening is a monthly series that allows attendees (“Seniors” or otherwise) to socialize during the first part of the program (12 until 12:45 pm) by bringing a bag lunch, while enjoying desserts and coffee served by the Friends of the Library volunteers. The program and entertainment then begins at 1 pm.

Registration is required and may be done in person at the library; by telephone at (973) 992-4600; or online at www.livingstonlibrary.org. Livingston residents may register starting October 28th and other Essex County residents may register starting November 8th.

Senior Happening is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
