I feel like if you love theater, if youre into musicals and you cant get to see Wicked, then you should come see our show.
Daniel C. Levine is the creator of Broadway Backstage, presented by On Stage at Kingsborough as part of its spring 2013 series, for the first time. It will be premiering on March 23, giving the audience a backstage look at some unforgettable Broadway bloopers.
Levine has been on Broadway for 20 years starring in shows like Les Miserables, Chicago, Mamma Mia, Tommy and Little Shop of Horrors. He and a talented cast, composed of five other Broadway stars, will be performing their show-stopping numbers.
Every show is different, Levine said, when speaking of acting in Mamma Mia. Wouldnt it be cool to show the audience what happens when you forget a line, or if your wig falls off?
People just love great singers who sing great Broadway songs!
Between them, the six actors have appeared in 25 Broadway shows. Sarah Litzsinger is a really well known Disney star, who performed in The Beauty and the Beast, said Levine. Matt Farnsworth appeared in Sunset Boulevard. Jenn Conella stars in Chaplin, about film icon Charlie Chaplin. Cheryl Sterns Broadway credits include La Cage Aux Folles, and Laughing Room Only, and lastly Michael Seelback appeared in Footloose and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Video interviews of actual footage will be shown during the two-hour show, including the actors auditions and how they got to be in these incredible Broadway hits.
You dont really think what [weve] gone through to get the part, added Levine, explaining that its interesting to hear about the actors experiences of being a big hit, and signing autographs after the show for a few years and the next day, youre unemployed.
One day youre hot, the other youre not, laughed Levine, saying that a segment of the show is going to be dedicated to this.
Additionally, the actors will be showing a section called costume mishaps, which focuses on the what-went-wrong moments, of the shows, including Levine forgetting to put pants on for a scene in Chicago, where he was playing a woman and was revealed as a man.
Tickets cost $25 and the show starts at 8 p.m.
Join them for a good laugh!
