Galloway, N.J. - Neil Berg’s widely acclaimed “103 Years of Broadway,” a musical revue of Broadway’s most celebrated shows featuring a dazzling cast of five Broadway stars accompanied by an all-star New York band, is coming to the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Nov. 19.
Show time is 4 p.m. Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online stockton.edu/pac or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 90 minutes before the performance. For group sales, call (609) 652-4786.
In “103 Years of Broadway,” the greatest moments from the finest shows of the century are recreated, featuring the actual stars of shows such as “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables,” “Cats,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” and “Jekyll & Hyde.” These amazing performers light up the stage with songs from the hit shows in which they starred.
Berg presents brilliantly revived arrangements of Broadway classics as well as thrilling numbers from Broadway’s newest hit shows. Past productions of this popular show have featured Betty Buckley, Liz Callaway, Ben Vereen and Alex Santoriello, among others.
According to San Francisco’s KABC radio theater critic, Jerry Friedman, “This revue features some of the best songs from the best Broadway shows, all sung by some of the most talented performers working today singing many of the hit songs that they have sung on Broadway.”
Berg is the composer/lyricist of the hit off-Broadway musical “The Prince and the Pauper,” which ran for two years at the Lamb’s Theater in New York City. The New York Times described it as “...soaring on the wings of theatrical fun.”
Berg is currently writing the music for the Broadway bound musical, “Grumpy Old Men,” based on the hit film. Two of Berg’s new musicals have been selected for the prestigious New York Musical Theater Festival: “The Man Who Would Be King,” a musical realization of Rudyard Kipling’s novella, and “Tim and Scrooge,” the sequel to “A Christmas Carol.”
“‘103 Years of Broadway’ is two and a half hours of fun! Whenever Neil Berg is putting on his ‘103 years of Broadway’ within a two-hour radius – I’m there! Neil puts on these hit-filled concerts featuring a bevy of Broadway performers singing some of the theater’s most well- known tunes. It brought down the house, and it doesn’t get much better than that.” – Robert Diamond, Broadwayworld.com
