Ordway Cabaret: A Brand New Day Part One – Breaking Barriers
Approximate Run-time: 90 minutes with no intermission
From “Some Enchanted Evening” to “Seasons of Love,” join us for Breaking Barriers, an entertaining and enlightening evening of Broadway songs about star-crossed lovers and others from groundbreaking musicals like In the Heights, South Pacific, Showboat, West Side Story, Rent, and La Cage aux Folles.
Ordway Cabaret features local performers in a cabaret format. This all-new series presents the music of Broadway in a thoroughly modern way: critiquing musicals that reinforce stereotypes and celebrating those that succeed in breaking barriers. The finale and signature song, “A Brand New Day” from The Wiz, reminds us that, at least in some Broadway musicals, love can set you free.
