The Union Public Library and Lincoln Center On Screen present a prerecorded screening of Unsung Carolyn Leigh on Thursday, June 1 at 1pm. From popular standards like “Witchcraft” and “Young at Heart” to Broadway’s Little Me and Peter Pan, theater icon Carolyn Leigh has built an enduring legacy of smart, sophisticated, and sexy songwriting. Unsung Carolyn Leigh highlights the Tony-and Grammy-nominated icon’s little-known works, including several jazz-infused items from her acclaimed 1969 Gatsby score, a cut song from How Now Dow Jones, and two numbers written with Marvin Hamlisch for the original, unproduced version of Smile.
Unsung Carolyn Leigh, recorded at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse as part of American Songbook on April 5, 2014.
Lincoln Center On Screen partners with libraries, schools and community service organizations to bring free screenings of world-class performances to neighborhoods across the country.
Programs are free and open to the public and reservations are not required. The library is located at 1980 Morris Ave., Union, NJ 07083
