West Side Story. Candide. On the Town. Leonard Bernstein composed some of the most memorable theater scores of his generation—but who was the man behind the music? Join us for a thought-provoking evening of Bernstein songs and stories in this edition of Conversations in Concert, hosted by theater insider Ted Chapin.

Jamie Bernstein will pull back the curtain of her father’s complex persona, sharing intimate moments and childhood memories from her book, Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein.

Jazz pianist Bill Charlap & the Bill Charlap Trio will perform Bernstein classics, including “America,” “Lucky To Be Me,” “Some Other Time,” “Glitter and be Gay,” “Somewhere,” and “Cool.”

Don’t miss this joyful tribute to America’s most iconic composer-conductor.
