Standby, Me

When Julie Benko first took the stage as the standby for Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, she could not have anticipated that she would take her bow as Broadway’s newest breakout star. Joined by her husband Jason Yeager on piano, Julie reflects on the journey leading to her meteoric rise, sharing songs and behind-the-scenes stories of her days understudying in Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof, Spring Awakening, and more. From Broadway classics (“People,” “Matchmaker”) to jazz standards (“Twisted”) to contemporary favorites (“What’s Gonna Happen,” “i Dreamed a Dream”), 'Standby, Me' offers an evening of spectacular vocals, theatrical lore, and inspiration for all the greatest stars-to-be. 

Julie Sings Jule (Styne)

Monday, July 24th, 7PM


New York, NY


Amidst one of Broadway’s most inspiring stories of the past decade, Jule Styne’s music transformed Julie Benko into “the greatest star.” Now, she bids goodbye to the Broadway production of Funny Girl with a celebration of the legendary composer’s remarkable repertoire. Alongside her jazz-pianist husband Jason Yeager, Julie brings her trademark charm, comedic timing, and sterling vocals to her namesake’s songbook, performing such well-loved classics as “Just In Time,” “The Party’s Over,” “Make Someone Happy,” "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend," "Time After Time," “People,” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” as well as lesser-known gems from forgotten works. With fascinating stories of Styne’s life and reminiscences of how he has unknowingly shaped hers, Julie Sings Jule Styne is a love letter to the bygone days of Broadway from its newest breakout star.
