Broadway fans will get their money’s worth and more when Neil Berg’s “101 Years of Broadway,” a medley of Broadway’s most memorable musical moments, comes to the Frostburg State University Performing Arts Center Pealer Recital Hall during two showings at 3 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22.
Created by award-winning composer Neil Berg, “101 Years of Broadway” recreates some of the biggest moments from the best-known Broadway musical shows of the century, including “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Les Miserables.” The show features revivals of Broadway classics as well as numbers from Broadway’s newest hit shows performed by the stars straight from Broadway and supported by an all-star New York band.
Five spectacular performers bring their talents to “101 Years of Broadway”: Danny Zolli is best known for his monumental number of performances as Jesus, Judas and Annas in more than 18 productions of "Jesus Christ Superstar" throughout the world. Raymond Jaramillo McLeod, Broadway veteran, appeared as Wreck in the Tony Award winning production of “Wonderful Town.” Erick Buckley was the first person in the world to perform both the roles of Marius and Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables“ and also appeared as Piangi in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera.” Rita Harvey recently took over the role of Hodel in the Broadway revival of “Fiddler on the Roof.” She made her Broadway debut performing the lead role of Christine in “Phantom of the Opera.” Carter Calvert was seen in the World Premiere of “Forbidden Vegas” in a role she originated. She has appeared as Grizabella in the national tour of “Cats,” and as the title role in “Always, Patsy Cline.” The cast and program are subject to change based upon possible Broadway and touring developments.
