BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A summer cabaret at Everyman Theatre features two of Broadway’s biggest stars singing showtune classics from more than a dozen productions.

Broadway’s Judy McLane from “Mamma Mia!” and Philip Hernandez from “Les Miserables” reunite for a second time at Everyman Theatre in Baltimore.

“This is more of a journey of my past, Philip’s past, kind of our careers in the theatre, our Broadway shows, some shows we want to do, dream roles we haven’t done, so it’s a chance to show a little bit of our personalities,” McLane said.

Showgoers are encouraged to sing along during the “Mamma Mia!” medley.

Broadway music director Daniel Green will join the duo on stage as they sing songs from favorites including “Evita” and “Wicked”.

“It’s a little more freewheeling. It’s a lot looser, there’s a lot more connection with the actor and the audience on a conversational level,” Hernandez said. “It’s fun, it’s Broadway classics, so there’s much more music and there’s more variety.”

The Broadway stars are excited to perform in a different venue that provides an up-close and personal setting.

“This way we are bringing the audience into our world, we’re all one here and it becomes more of a flow of energy in a different way,” McLane said.

There will only be six performances at Everyman Theatre, running through July 22. Tickets cost $40.
