Broadway stars and musicians of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra will perform a concert reading of a new musical comedy from the author of Broadway’s Sister Act, Cinderella, and Xanadu.
It’s the height of the Cold War when Russian spies take over an ocean liner holding all of NATO. Leave it to the lounge singers on board to save the day by teaching the communists to put down their Kalashnikovs and pick up singing, dancing, and comedy.
The war is cold but the numbers are hot in this show with a ring-a-ding score that might just bring back the Rat Pack!
The Big Time cast features Tony Award-winning Broadway stars Santino Fontana (Tootsie, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Debbie Gravitte (Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, Chicago), as well as Tony Award nominees Laura Osnes (Bandstand, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella) and Will Swenson (Waitress, Hair), Emmy nominee Jackie Hoffman (Fiddler on the Roof, Xanadu, Feud: Bette and Joan), and Michael McCormick (Wicked, Hello Dolly), Bradley Dean (The Phantom of the Opera, Dear Evan Hansen) and Raymond Bokhour (Chicago).
Tickets start at $25.
