Broadway Backwards, A Musical Revue and Fundraiser

Our 2020 Summer Season is big, momentous, timely, and ... expensive! So we're doing a fundraiser, as only we can do. It’s an original spring musical revue, "Broadway Backwards," produced by Jeff Sand, with vocal direction by Emma Gingold and music direction by Rex Meyer.

"Broadway Backwards" will be a celebration of all your favorite Broadway tunes, turned on their heads! A female Judas belts the title song of Jesus Christ Superstar, backed up by a trio of manly angels. A stage full of male dancers invite a “Big Spender” to stay awhile. A disappointed queen sings to her “loyal, royal subjects" to remind them of her love. A baritone sings a lullaby to “young lovers, wherever you are,” while two sopranos sing of the girl who has Lily’s eyes. From Hammerstein to Hamilton, from Kander and Ebb to Pasek and Paul, we’ll present decades of Broadway tunes as you’ve never heard them before!

"Broadway Backwards" will be performed 3 times:

  • Friday, March 13 at 7:30pm
  • Saturday, March 14 at 2:00
  • and again at 7:30pm

At Wesley United Methodist Church in downtown Naperville.

If the premise sounds fun, just wait until you hear our phenomenal cast bring it to life!
