In a rehearsal room near Times Square this week, some two dozen men with Broadway-honed voices huddled to strategize.They were practicing choral work ahead of a landmark concert Monday at the mighty Carnegie Hall, and creator-producer Chapman Roberts knew what those voices will be facing.The idea of the concert began with Norm Lewis, who, even before becoming Broadway's first black Phantom in "The Phantom of the Opera," had heard young men to call him an inspiration for roles in "Les Miserables" and "The Little Mermaid".As the show's go-to guy, Roberts certainly has his work cut out. He anticipates a nonstop lineup of songs that culminates in all the performers -- over 100, including seven Tony winners -- sharing the stage for three songs.
