The Broadway revue with a sexy rock & roll twist!
A uniquely modern musical celebration of Broadway, rock n’ roll, radio pop and 60’s girl groups, THE BROADWAY DOLLS offers a diverse evening of song and dance with performers pulled directly from nearly every Broadway musical in New York. Originally performed as a mainstage musical production called Tour de Fierce at the 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF), this truly unique theatrical experience has played throughout North America and beyond, most recently returning from a two-week touring engagement in China.
True triple threats, these dynamic starlets of the stage bring a diverse and imaginative catalog of Broadway and popular music to life in this one-of-a-kind musical event. Audiences can expect to hear nearly 50 classic Broadway showtunes, many of which were performed by the cast in roles they played on Broadway. In addition to Broadway, the Dolls reinvent the mashup genre by blending Broadway standards with current pop songs by Lady Gaga & Carly Rae Jepsen, and re-invented arrangements of Britney Spears’ Toxic, U2’s I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, and Prince’s Baby, I’m a Star. Students of history, they also dedicate a portion of the show paying homage to 1960’s girl group favorites, such as Heatwave, One Fine Day, and Leader of the Pack. The show includes a selection of American country/western music and an homage to classic musical theater cinema such as Singin' In The Rain.
