40 Photos of Stars Singing at Festival of New American Musicals Party 


Here is an album of 40 photos from one of this past summer’s exceptional highlights: the Festival of New American Musicals party to celebrate the end of a successful 2011 season with 132 shows and 16 world-premieres.

You’ll find details of the Festival of New American Musicals party in a story written a few weeks ago. The afternoon was so special, however, that it seemed to merit an entire photo album, which you’ll now find below.

John Stamos, Kristen Bell, Rita Wilson, Drew Carey, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Chip Esten were among singers showing up at voice coach Eric Vetro’s home for the Sept. 10 end-of-season celebration for the Los Angeles festival.  More stars of Broadway, TV and film, plus some brilliant new talents were James Carpinello, David Burnham, Brooke Adams, Kelly Levesque, Tyler Hamilton, Eamonn McCrystal, Nolan Gerard Funk, Molly Gordon, Ben Platt, Sophie B. Hawkins, Kim Huber, Penelope Yates, Sue Goodman, Brad Ellis, Gerard Sternbach and Todd Schroeder. Award-winning songwriters included Desmond Child, David Zippel, Amanda McBroom, Michele Brourman and Diane Warren, and from the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts came Alexa Russo and Garrison Hall.

Bob Klein, Marcia Seligson and Linda Shusett are the festival’s co-producers. Readers will also find on this website, stories about other presentations in the summer’s Festival, which included “Rocket Science” and the ASCAP Songwriters Showcase
