‘The Best Is Yet to Come: the Music of Cy Coleman’


During his fabulous career, the late, wildly versatile songwriter worked with lyricists Joseph McCarthy, Caroline Leigh, Dorothy Fields, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Michael Stewart, Ira Gasman, and David Zippel to great effect. In gratitude, Zippel has organized a revue featuring the great talents of Sally Mayes, Billy Stritch, Howard McGillin, Rachel York, and David Burnham. With songs and singers like these in Don Sebesky’s arrangements, there’ll be no stopping the hotsy-totsy enterprise.
