Neil Berg’s “100 Years of Broadway”
Neil Berg’s widely acclaimed “100 Years of Broadway,” a musical revue of Broadway’s most celebrated shows features a dazzling cast of five Broadway stars accompanied by an all-star New York Band is coming to Lakeside’s Hoover Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 8.
According to San Francisco’s KABV 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.”
“100 Years of Broadway” recreates the greatest moments from the finest shows of the century featuring the actual stars of the shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Jekyll & Hyde.
“Broadway tunes leave the audience with an enchanted evening,” says the Buffalo News. “Neil Berg is a powerful, kinetic pianist with a load of chops. He also writes music for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. What (makes) Berg’s production was the quality of the performers and the arrangements. The singers were excellent. Berg creates a well-balanced blend of the sublime and the lighthearted.”
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. He is currently writing the music for the Broadway bound musical Grumpy Old Men, based on the hit film.
