New York, NY (rushprnews) 03/16/2007–Broadway stars rock out to the music of pop sensation Ben Folds at THE UNAUTHORIZED MUSICOLOGY OF BEN FOLDS, Monday March 26 at 7pm at the Zipper Theatre.

A co-production of BroadwayWorld.com, The New York Musical Theatre Festival and amNewYork, the concert is back by popular demand after selling out its initial engagement last September. And we’re offering Broadway World readers $10 off – details below!

Ben Folds is the widely-acclaimed singer-songwriter, pianist and founder of Ben Folds Five which created albums of nerd-populated, joyously frustrated pop/rock including such hits as “Philosophy” and “Brick” he himself christened “punk rock for sissies.” Folds’ music continued to grow through his solo efforts – he’s an Elton John, Billy Joel-style piano man, with a distinct way of rocking out on catchy pop hooks. He’s funny and bitter and sorrowful as hell, and he reclaimed rock for every nerd you ever were, knew or dumped back in high school.With a cast of Broadway stars, we’re celebrating Ben Folds’ music because we feel he’s been writing ‘showtunes’ since 1996. Sharp lyrics – smart, simple and always character-driven — and a natural predilection for storytelling make him a secret Sondheim. Musical theatre fans will find themselves tapping their toes and wanting to learn more about “Alice Childress,” “Eddie Walker,” and “Uncle Walter.” They are much more than pop songs with memorable lyrics and tunes — every last one is a defined dramatic moment, a story. And that’s theatre.
