The biggest hits of the Great White Way are coming to Ogdensburg Free Academy Monday.
Broadway Rox, a musical features six Broadway stars, recording artists and a five-piece band, will perform 20 songs from shows such as Hair, Wicked, Jersey Boys, Movin Out, and Mamma Mia.
Cast member Daniel Luis Domenech said the show is something that fans of Glee and Smash will enjoy.
There is not a dull moment from the minute the music starts to curtain call, Mr. Domenech said Wednesday. I havent had this much fun doing a show in a while.
But Mr. Domenech says the show is for everyone – young and old and unfamiliar with Broadway.
Theres something for everyone from Billy Joel songs, Dont Stop Believing, and Time Warp, he said. Many of the songs people will be familiar with even if they havent seen the musicals. Its great to see people singing along.
His favorite song to sing is Bohemian Rhapsody.
I hope I make Freddie Mercury proud, Mr. Domenech said.
The show is sponsored by Ogdensburg Command Performances and made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Mr. Domenech, who has been a fan of musicals from an early age, said he sees the value of programs like Ogdensburg Command Performances that bring Broadway shows to smaller stages.
That is the joy of going to regional theaters around the world – you get to see the impact on a particular community, he said. I never thought when I was younger that I could turn my love of singing into a career. Its really important for kids who have a hard time fitting in somewhere to see where they belong of if musical theater is something they want to take seriously.
The curtain goes up at 7:45 p.m.
Tickets range from $15 to $37.
