When you think of Broadway songs, you usually think of the star’s big solo or the grand production number featuring the whole chorus. But there is another Broadway song that deserves special attention: the duet! Duets allow a show’s stars to interact; to fight, flirt, and fall in love.
Host Sean Hartley and a stellar cast of Broadway performers explore duets in different styles by some of Broadway's greatest writers, including Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cy Coleman, Stephen Schwartz, William Finn, and Alan Menken, plus songs from The Book of Mormon and A Gentlemen's Guide to Love and Murder.

FARAH ALVIN (NINE)
LORA LEE GAYER (FOLLIES)
