Ahrens & Flaherty
These songwriters wrote the great end-of-20th-century musical. It’s Ragtime, if your memory’s cloudy. Their track record since is less impressive, and includes the current Rocky, but they’ve still turned out some heavyweight ditties as they’ve toiled over the keyboard and the rhyming dictionary. Singing and celebrating selections from a 30-year collaboration that has produced favorites such as Lucky Stiff, Once on This Island, My Favorite Year and the later Seussical will be, among others, Mary Testa, Bobby Steggart, Andy Karl (Broadway’s Rocky Balboa), Liz Callaway and Julie Halston.
