BROADWAY @ the Bushnell. Pick up the Broadway Preview on the Travel Wall…2019 is a wonderful line up:
CATS (February 3, 2019). Based on The Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, Cats is sung through British music composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The musical tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicoes and the night they make what is known as “the Jellicoe choice” a new life. Cats introduced the song standard “Memory.”
RENT (March 17, 2019). Rent is a rock musical with music, lyrics and book by Jonathon Larson, loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Boehme. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York City’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Share the “Seasons of Love” once again.
BEAUTIFUL (March 31, 2019). Its back!!! The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Geffen, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts.
COME FROM AWAY (May 5, 2019). The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran tight, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. ON 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.
WAITRESS (June 23, 2019). Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker. Jenna dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town's new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the courage to rebuild her own life.
