Since we won’t be able to present shows on the Broadway At Music Circus stage this summer, over the next few months we’ll be looking back at some of your favorite productions from previous seasons in a series of emails we’re calling CENTER STAGE.
Jared Gertner & Sarah Litzsinger
Reflect on Little Shop of Horrors
The final show of the 2018 Broadway At Music Circus season was a critically-acclaimed production of the hit musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors that featured a stellar cast of Broadway veterans. Watch two of those veterans, Jared Gertner (Seymour) and Sarah Litzsinger (Audrey), reminisce about working in-the-round, sharing the stage with a giant person-eating plant, performing their favorite songs from the beloved Alan Menken score, and other experiences during their time with Broadway At Music Circus.
Jessica Grové & James Snyder
Reflect on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
Be Our Guest to enjoy Broadway veterans Jessica Grové (Belle) and James Snyder (The Beast) as they recall some of their experiences at Broadway At Music Circus playing the roles of Belle and The Beast in the 2017 production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The two-week engagement of this beloved show, with an Academy Award®-winning score by Alan Menken and featuring sumptuous costumes from director Glenn Casale’s European tour, kicked off the season.
Zonya Love & Lynne Wintersteller
Reflect on Sister Act
Join stars Zonya Love (Deloris Van Cartier) and Lynne Wintersteller (Mother Superior) as they look back on the 2017 Broadway At Music Circus production of SISTER ACT, the hit musical comedy with a score by award-winning composer Alan Menken. Based on the popular 1992 film, and featuring a cast of Broadway veterans and audience favorites, SISTER ACT was the final show of that season and a Broadway At Music Circus premiere.
Rodolfo Soto, Doreen Montalvo & Didi Romero
Reflect on In The Heights
For our next CENTER STAGE feature, join stars Rodolfo Soto (Usnavi), Doreen Montalvo (Camila) and Didi Romero (Nina) as they look back at their experience in Sacramento for the Broadway At Music Circus premiere of In The Heights, the final show of the 2019 season. Our electrifying production of the multiple Tony Award®-winning Best Musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the smash hit Hamilton, received enthusiastic standing ovations at every performance during its sold out engagement.
Lesli Margherita & John McGinty
Reflect On The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Join stars Lesli Margherita (Esmeralda) and John McGinty (Quasimodo) as they share some of their experiences from working here in 2016 on the season’s final show, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which became a Broadway At Music Circus audience favorite. Directed by Glenn Casale, it was the Northern California premiere of this daring new musical. In addition to a cast of Broadway veterans, our production featured a 19-member choir consisting of faculty, students and alumni from the Sacramento State University Opera Theatre program, along with members of Sacramento area choral groups.
