It was 100 years ago when the American Theater opened for business on 42nd Street in the heart of Manhattan. It was to be the first of many theaters to open on what would become Broadway—the Great White Way. Beginning with the early years of Tin Pan Alley, this delightful revue takes us through some of the most memorable music the Broadway stage had to offer over the last century.
It’s Broadway, Baby! is staged by Joni Sauer-Folger and produced by Val Braun, with musical direction by Diane Nelson and choreography by Sarah Absher. The cast features: Sarah Absher, Roberta Bettis, Robert Bishop, Julie Bucknam, Michael Simpson, John Davy, Gerry Cortimilia, Bill Farnum, Peggy Kellow, Kelli McMellon, Wally Nelson, Jennifer Purcell, Joni Sauer-Folger, Becki Wilhelm, and David Wiser. The show also highlights dancers from Dance Zone.
