Broadway stars Brian Stokes Mitchell and Megan Hilty will join forces April 21 and 22 for a pair of concerts with California's Pacific Symphony.

Titled Smashing Broadway, the concert will feature the two stars singing standards by Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and George Gershwin, among others.

Mitchell, a Tony winner for Kiss Me, Kate, starred on Broadway in 1997’s Ragtime and last season in Shuffle Along.

He will perform the concert with Hilty, star of TV’s backstage drama Smash; her Broadway credits include 9 to 5, Wicked, and a Tony-nominated turn in the 2016 revival of Noises Off.

The concert will be performed both nights at 8 PM at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, California. Order tickets here.
