Broadway World: A Little Education from James Rocco on BROADWAY SONGBOOK: COMDEN & GREEN
Kristen Montag, Broadway World Minneapolis 6/13/14
James Rocco’s BROADWAY SONGBOOK series at The Ordway Center for Performing Arts in Saint Paul, Minn., is a treasure for anyone who has an iPod full of showtunes and should earn continuing education credits for audience members who gain a wealth of knowledge in theatre history over the course of the show. Bonus: the performers are locals who are Twin Cities stars but could be starring on the stage in NYC.
The series returns June 13-15, 2014, with a tribute to Betty Comden and Adolph Green, who co-wrote some of the most beloved and successful Hollywood musicals and Broadway shows in the mid-20th century. I had a chance to find out a little more behind-the-scenes information about the show from Rocco himself. Start your education here, and then get your tickets before time runs out.
