“This is a natural fit for Neve Shalom’s 13, 2010 performance of ‘They Changed Broadway’,” says Forum Producing Artistic Director Peter Loewy.
Mr. Loewy adds, “The Forum Theatre has been the Cultural Arts Center of Central New Jersey since 1928, when it was built as a theatre and vaudeville tryout house. At the height of its success, The Forum Theatre was a thriving regional theater, presenting hundreds of American and World Premieres with an emphasis on musical theatre. There is no better place to bring Broadway performers for THEY CHANGED BROADWAY.”
“We’re thrilled to have the show at the Forum Theatre,” says Hope Serratelli, Neve Shalom board of director, and fundraising manager, “and very excited to be able to offer a venue that has been the stage for Theodore Bikel, Robert Klein, and recently Jackie Mason for the Broadway talent involved in this benefit production.”
The broad appeal of musical film and theater is something that Hollywood and Broadway agree upon. And, the Jewish Contribution to the musical goes well beyond Jewish themes. “They Changed Broadway” will feature hand-picked songs from Broadway’s iconic musicals woven into a two-hour, one-night program featuring well-known performers. The appeal of such a fundraiser is that it gives local residents a valuable and unique Broadway experience without travelling into Manhattan.
THEY CHANGED BROADWAY is scheduled for 4PM, June 13th, 2010 at the Forum Theatre in Metuchen, New Jersey.
