Broadway Philadelphia Season Kicks Off With a Woody Allen Show
The production, which was originally directed and choreographed on Broadway by Delaware native Susan Stroman, will play the Academy of Music for a limited engagement of October 27 through November 1. The show ran on the Great White Way in 2014 and was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Choreography.
Bullets Over Broadway will play over 40 cities during its national tour, and features the original costumes by the award-winning designer William Ivey Long. The show is essentially a juke box musical, featuring tunes that were made popular in the 20’s, including “Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I do,” “Let’s Misbehave,” and “I’m Sitting On Top Of The World.” It tells the story of a young playwright who is essentially “forced” to cast a mobster’s talentless girlfriend in a new show in order for it to make it to the stage.
Tickets for the Philly run range from $20 to $110 and can be purchase by visiting the Kimmel Center’s website.
