CityMash.com - Calling all theatre lovers! Broadway Across Canada has just released their line up for the 2017/2018 season. Four musicals will be heading to Vancouver later this year and into 2018. Check out the awesome shows coming our way:
The Phantom of The Opera
Playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from July 11-23, 2017 is The Phantom of The Opera. This Andrew Lloyd Webber musical has been a hit on Broadway since its debut in 1986. The Broadway Across Canada version will feature one of the largest casts in the show’s history, costumes by Tony award winner Maria Björson and lighting design by another Tony award winner, Paule Constable, who won for her work on War Horse. The Phantom of The Opera is sure to be a smashing good time (chandelier pun intended).
The Sound of Music
From September 12-17, 2017 The Sound of Music will be keeping the hills alive at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical will delight fans of the The Sound of Music movie with the same catchy tunes you know and love plus some new ones that didn’t make it into the film. Just try not to sing along when the familiar chorus for Do-Re-Mi starts up.
Not just your grandparents’ musical, Jersey Boys, playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from November 14-19, tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Even if The Four Seasons are before your time, Jersey Boys will still have you dancing in the aisle and singing along to songs you didn’t know you knew. Oh What A Night!
Motown the Musical
The 2018 theatre scene in Vancouver begins with a blast from the past, Motown the Musical, playing at Queen Elizabeth Theatre from February 6-11, 2018. Motown the Musical follows the story of Berry Gordy as he goes from an amateur boxer to the founder of the Motown label that brought us Michael Jacskon, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye. So suffice to say, you’ll know the music and you’ll have a hard time staying in your seat when your favourite song comes on.
