Best all-acoustic show-music concert (2008)

Broadway Unplugged

Those overworked amps in Broadway shows giving your ears a pain? Even if you're not part of the over-60 set that grumbles about the old days when actors could project, you'll find surcease, along with a lot of listening pleasure, at entrepreneur-columnist Scott Siegel's Broadway Unplugged concert, which annually summons a parade of A-list musical-theater dazzlers eager to prove that they can do it without help from their electronic pal Mike Rophone. Last year's showstoppers included Hairspray's Mary Bond Davis, Drowsy Chaperone's Eddie Kor­bich, and Obie winners Alice Playten and Mary Testa.
