Neil Berg’s 101 Years of Broadway is a wonderful sequel to the popular 100 Years of Broadway that played the Aronoff Center in February 2009. Performed by five of Broadway’s most acclaimed singers – including Cincinnati natives Ron Bohmer and Carter Calvert, plus Sandra Joseph, Chuck Wagner, and Danny Zolli – this acclaimed show is an unforgettable evening of Broadway’s best. It’s a sprawling revue of American musical treasures from Irving Berlin to Andrew Lloyd Webber – including dazzling tributes to Rodgers and Hart, Kander and Ebb, Lerner and Lowe, George Gershwin, Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, and Oscar Hammerstein
“Singing with the Broadway Stars” is an on-line audition opportunity with 101 Years of Broadway that gives local talent in each market of the tour the chance to show off their singing skills with five Broadway stars and an all-star New York band. The winners and runners-up receive tickets for their family and friends to see their Broadway debut on stage at the Aronoff Center!
“It is well known in New York City’s Broadway community that the Greater Cincinnati area has a reputation for wonderful theater talent and great voices. As a matter of fact, two of the Broadway stars featured in our cast – Carter Calvert and Ron Bohmer – are originally from Cincinnati,” said Neil Berg, creator and producer of 101 Years of Broadway. “That reputation was evident in this audition process. We were blown away by large amount of audition submissions, and the incredible wealth of talent. While our panel of Broadway judges knew there was going to be a lot of talent in Cincinnati, this was even better than expected. We could easily have selected five winners – all worthy. We are honored and excited about having these formidable performers join us in our performance at the Aronoff Center!”
