LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER: “ONE SINGULAR SENSATION: CELEBRATING MARVIN HAMLISCH”
December 31, 2012  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Dick Clark isn’t the only celebrity who died in 2012 who is getting a prime-time salute on the last day of the year. Also being honored, in a new Live from Lincoln Center concert tribute, is composer Marvin Hamlisch, who, among other impressive artistic achievements, wrote the music for Broadway’s A Chorus Line, cinema’s The Way We Were, and rekindled Scott Joplin’s legacy by using his ragtime music to score The Sting. And check out the lineup of performers gathering to honor him and sing his music tonight, all under the baton of Paul Gemignani: Audra McDonald (who also hosts, and is pictured here), Michael Feinstein, Kelli O’Hara, Megan Hilty from Smash, Joshua Bell, Raul Esparza and others. Check local listings.
