join ESB for an intimate Musical Theater concert featuring Broadway Alums!
Join us on Halloween afternoon for a one-time concert performance of some of the greatest hits in classic and modern musical theatre! The live performance will include numbers from Halloween-worthy productions including Into the Woods, Wicked, and Phantom of the Opera, as well as classic and modern repertoire from Rent, The King and I, The Music Man, and Spring Awakening.
You’ll be welcomed into a spacious outdoor patio at a private residence, with ample room for physical distancing. Adult beverages will be served, and guests will have the opportunity to speak with the artists after the performance.
As ESB Founders Amy and Keith spent over 10 years in NYC in the music industry, and built friendships with incredible artists over that time. With all of Broadway performances, and tours of Orchestral Concerts and Musicals cancelled around the world, we have seen many of our friends’ careers put at a standstill. This performance (as well as “The Zoo Story”), are not only opportunities to see and meet some incredible Broadway talent, but also offers these artists an opportunity to do what they love, which is to perform and entertain, and allows us, as musicphiles and modern-day bohemians to continue to experience incredible musical performances!
We ask that all guests respect the personal space of others and maintain distance during this time! ESB will be following strict guidelines to ensure the safety of all guests and staff.
Profits from this performance goes directly to the artists, who like our colleagues in food and beverage, have lost all employment and performance opportunities during the pandemic.
Thank you for supporting ESB and our artists! Take this opportunity to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve in a new delicious and devilishly entertaining way.
