All aboard! The saucy and splendid production of “Anything Goes” is a winner of three 2011 Tony awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography, and is making its way to Broken Arrow on January 25. This musical is about crazy antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. Peppering this Cole Porter first-class comedy are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick out of You,” “You’re the Top,” and of course, “Anything Goes.” The AP exclaims it as, “So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!”
For the first time in Spotlight Series history, the BAPAC Foundation is welcoming a play to its lineup. The grownup’s prequel to Peter Pan called “Peter and the Starcatcher” flies through Broken Arrow on February 24. Hailed by The New York Times as “the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades,” this comedy takes a hilarious romp through Neverland. Winner of five Tony awards, this is the innovative and imaginative play based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. A company of a dozen actors play more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?
On April 17, The Midtown Men close out the sixth annual BAPAC Foundation Spotlight Series. This sensational production reunites four stars from the original cast of Broadway’s “Jersey Boys.” Tony award winner Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard and Tony award nominee J. Robert Spencer star in this one-of-a-kind concert experience celebrating the music that defined the ‘60s. These talented entertainers shared the Broadway stage for more than a 1,000 performances in the mega-hit “Jersey Boys.” Now as The Midtown Men, they have thrilled crowds on concert stages and symphony halls across the continent and have delighted television audiences with performances on “Good Morning America,” “Access Hollywood,” “Katie” and “The Chew.” Additionally, the Men collaborated with rock ‘n’ roll icon Stevie Van Zandt on their first radio single, “All Alone On Christmas,” featuring Van Zandt and members of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. The group also had the distinct honor of opening the National Tree Lighting Ceremony at the White House.
