Seth Rudetsky hosts this event, taking audiences on an insider journey beyond the fourth wall! Chita Rivera is a Broadway legend unlike any other. With a career that includes creating the roles of Anita in West Side Story, Rosie in Bye Bye Birdie, and Velma Kelly in Chicago, few other performers exemplify the tradition of American musical theater as Rivera does. A singer and dancer with few peers, she starred both on Broadway and across America on tour in Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life, dramatizing her storied career as a performer. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including two Tonys, a Kennedy Center Honor, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Vanessa Williams, the Grammy Award-, Emmy Award-, and Tony Award-nominated superstar, makes her Broadway Up Close concert series debut. SiriusXM radio personality Seth Rudetsky costars as pianist and host. Other stars appearing in the series this season will be Tony Award winners Alice Ripley (Next to Normal) and Chita Rivera.
What differentiates Broadway Up Close from other concert series is its mix of intimate behind-the-scenes stories from Broadway's biggest stars — prompted by Rudetsky's probing, funny, revealing questions — and their stellar singing of musical theater repertoire.
Come and participate in two hours of continuous dance/movement improvisation with live music. Leaders Manfred Fischbeck and Brigitta Herrmann guide the group through a series of movement meditations, improvisational structures and games to inspire spontaneous self-expression and collective creation. All of these allow for new and spontaneous explorations of the mind and body in relation to oneself, space, others, and sound.
A Midsummer Night's Dream is perhaps the most performed comedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between the years 1590 and 1597. The play centers around the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, and what happens when fairies decide to mix in the affairs of mortals. The plays comedy hinges on mistaken identities, love affairs that are not reciprocated and the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
