I’m just gonna say it…..I love musicals of all kinds!! My favorite will always be Phantom Of The Opera and now my new second fave is Bat Out Of Hell.
But I also gotta say I’m pretty excited about the 2018/2019 line-up for Broadway Across Canada coming the National Arts Centre as they celebrate the 20th Anniversary Ottawa Season.
It kicks off in September of 2018 with School Of Rock, based on the hit film with 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber so you know that is just gonna be good.
The Carole King musical, Beautiful is next up in January 2019 featuring all her amazing hits along the way, I Feel The Earth Move, One Fine Day and You’ve Got A Friend to name a few.
March 2019 brings you the King And I from Rodgers and Hammerstein, with two worlds colliding in the Lincoln Center Theatre production that the New York Times called breathtaking and exquisite.
The season winds down with a musical that Nida has been raving about since her and her husband Chris saw it in New York City. Far And Away, the true story of the small town that welcomed the world comes to town in August of 2019. On 9/11 when the world stopped, 9/12 their stories moved us all and went on to win best musical all across North America.
I know, I have never wished a whole year to come so fast but with this line-up, how can you not, absolutely incredible!!
