The lineup is jam-packed with Broadway's hottest hits
PlayhouseSquare has just announced its 2014-2015 KeyBank Broadway Series, and the lineup is jam-packed with Broadway's hottest hits.
Senior Vice President of Theater Operations Gina Vernaci made the announcement this evening on the Palace Theatre stage to a crowd of more than 2,000. The series includes multiple Tony Award-winning productions, including 2013's winner for best musical, "Kinky Boots," 2013's winner for best revival, "Pippin," and 2012's winner for best choreography and best original score, Disney's "Newsies"
"The 2014-2015 KeyBank Broadway Series is the ultimate in live entertainment," Vernaci said. "With more sequins than a Lady Gaga concert and red velvet seats plush enough for a palace, this season has it all -- great music, dazzling costumes and spectacular dancing that will have your heart pounding. We are once again indebted to KeyBank and to all our generous donors for making this incredible series possible. The demand for live theater in Cleveland is great, and PlayhouseSquare is proud to deliver the best that Broadway has to offer."
Those in attendance at this evening's KeyBank Broadway Series launch were treated to a sample of what the series will have to offer, with a surprise appearance by the cast of "Motown the Musical," who performed several hits from the catalogue of Motown founder Berry Gordy. Music will play a big role in this year's series, with classic scores from Irving Berlin and Rodgers and Hammerstein, to the creative and innovative music of recent Tony Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper.
