Now in its 15th season, Lincoln Center’s acclaimed series American Songbook will expand its scope and offer two series that celebrate the best in American singing and songwriting.

“American Songbook in The Allen Room” will run from January 30 through March 2, 2013 and will present 15 nights of music from Broadway old and new, rhythm & blues, country, pop, gospel, blues, rock, jazz, and folk.  Later in the spring begins a new chapter in the Songbook story – “American Songbook in the Penthouse,” a series of weekend-only performances in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, an intimate venue that brings artists closer to the audience in a cabaret-style setting.   Performers throughout the season include Kristin Chenoweth, Lea Salonga, Marin Mazzie, Jason Danieley, Chita Rivera, Joel Grey, Valerie Simpson, Alice Pipley, Idinia Menzel and more.
