Broadway Smash Ain't To Proud Now On Sale Thru November 2020

Ain't too proudI'll be the first to admit, that when it was announced last year that they were working on a new musical about The Temptations, I was a little weary. Don't get me wrong. I love The Temptations.

In fact, they are my favorite musical group of all time.Which is why I was concerned that they might screw it up. Well as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. What a fantastic night in the theatre. Now going in, I was well aware of their story.

However, the thing that impressed me the most was any time a tragedy occurred to one of them, it was as if I was hearing about it for the very first time. Now that is great storytelling my friends.

Now for those of you who still haven't seen the show, you have come to the right place. We sell it. Not only that, but tickets for this award winning musical are now on sale thru November 29, 2020. Get your tickets to see Ain't Too Proud on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre. You will love it. Until next time theatre fans.

Harry Connick Jr. - A Celebration Of Cole Porter To Begin Performances Next Week On Broadway

Image result for a celebration of cole porter logoExciting news theater fans. Two-time Tony Award nominee Harry Connick Jr. is headed back to the Great White Way in Harry Connick Jr. - A Celebration of Cole Porter.

Now while I knew that he received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in A Musical in 2006 for his role in The Pajama Game, I had to do a little research on the second one.

As it turns out, it was in 2002 for Best Original Score for Thou Shalt Not, which unfortunately opened to scathing reviews, and closed after eighty-five performances and twenty-two previews.Here's hoping his new show fares better than that one did. Fingers crossed.

The show, which had it's world premier at the Durham Performing Arts Center in North Carolina this past September,  is set to begin performances at the Nederlander Theatre on Saturday December 6, and play thru Sunday December 29. It was also recently announced that the show will embark on a national tour following the Broadway engagement.

By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see Harry Connick Jr.- A Celebration of Cole Porter,you have come to the right place. We sell it. In fact, we sell every play and musical both On and Off-Broadway. Get your tickets to see Harry Connick Jr. - A Celebration of Cole Porter on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
