"Late Night with Leonard Bernstein"
A well-known insomniac for whom night was a time for creativity and friendship, deep introspection and revelry, the iconic Leonard Bernstein loved to work and entertain at all hours. Celebrating the Maestro’s centennial, Late Night with Leonard Bernstein – hosted by his daughter Jamie and featuring acclaimed soprano Amy Burton and noted pianists John Musto and Michael Boriskin – is an affectionate multi-media portrait of the personal side of this charismatic, singularly public figure. This vibrant evening has captivated sold-out audiences across the United States since it premiered at Lincoln Center and Copland House. It features Bernstein's most intimate (and favorite) music, including works by Aaron Copland, Zez Confrey, Noel Coward, Franz Schubert and Edvard Grieg, along with personal stories and audio and film clips of the Maestro himself.
