After a stunning World Premiere Season last year, audiences will again have the opportunity to be treated to a fantastic, fascinating,fun filled musical journey of song dance and comedy in Genesis to Broadway.
From the heartfelt melodies of the Middle East, sizzling flamenco rhythms of Spain, romantic expressions of Italy, exciting beats of Africa and across the seas to Manhattan we see how mankind has sought to express itself through popular music, dance, laughter and song.
Be prepared to be entertained with some of the best showstoppers of all time, including music by Llyod Webber, Rogers and Hammerstein, Soundheim, Lerner and Loewe, Gershwin and a myriad of others.
Written and Directed by Frank Howson, with musical direction by Warren Wills and choreography by Stephen Agisilaou, Genesis to Broadway features Green Room Award nominee Fem Belling (Cats, The Boy from Oz, Fame, Hairspray) and Tod Strike (South Pacific, Cats, Ten Tenors).
“All involved with the show are overjoyed at the reaction Melbourne audiences gave this show late last year,” says director, Frank Howson.
“Every performance received a standing ovation. So here we are, coming back with an even better version of the show. We have honed it, added some new songs, deleted a few things, and included some more tributes and stories about the great songwriters.”
“This is one show that gives the audience more bang for their buck. Be prepared to be entertained with some of the best showstoppers of all time. It is also the last chance to see this Australian-born production before it heads to Broadway for a season early next year.”
