News Story

SDACA’s Broadway Series is back. Now showing: "Les Misérables," "The Audience," "Finding Neverland," "Fish in the Dark," and "An American in Paris."

The Center for Student Development and Campus Activities (SDACA) is proud to present Broadway Series 2015, featuring five Broadway shows. Though most of the shows are brand new or haven’t yet opened, the series will begin with a beloved favorite and the longest running musical in the world, Les Misérables. You can read below for a list of the plays being offered.

Les Misérables
Friday, February 20 | 8:00 p.m. | $45
Imperial Theater | 249 West 45th Street, New York, NY 10036
Heartbreak, passion, and resilience. Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. The magnificent score of Les Misérables includes the classic songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” “Master of the House,” and many more.

The Audience
Wednesday, March 4 | 8:00 p.m. | $60
Schoenfeld Theatre | 236 West 45th St, New York, NY 10036
Sixty years. Twelve prime ministers. One queen. And three words that will make you click to buy these tickets faster than we can say who rides the R train like a boss: Dame. Helen. Mirren. For 60 years Elizabeth II has met each of her 12 prime ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace—a meeting like no other in British public life. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen (Helen Mirren). From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional—sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive. In turn, the Queen can't help but reveal her own self as she advises, consoles, and, on occasion, teases.

Finding Neverland
Saturday, March 28 | 2:00 p.m. | $38
Lunt-Fontanne Theatre | 205 West 46th, New York, NY 10036
The story of how Peter became Pan, Finding Neverland follows playwright J.M. Barrie (played by Glee’s Matthew Morrison) who needs a big hit to save his career. He finds it when he meets widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Laura Michelle Kelly) and her four young songs, who eventually became Barrie's inspiration to write Peter Pan. The musical explores the power of imagination to open up new worlds, and the pressures put upon those worlds by the inevitability of growing up. This story is proof that you never really have to grow up. You hear that, dad?

Fish in the Dark
Friday, April 17 | 8:00 p.m. | $60
Cort Theatre | 138 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036
No need to curb your enthusiasm. Seinfeld co-creator Larry David returns to the stage for the first time since eighth grade with this comedy that focuses on 15 characters (with heavy hitters like Rita Wilson, Rosie Perez, and Ben Shenkman) as they deal with a death in the family.

An American in Paris
Saturday, April 25 | 8:00 p.m. | $45
Palace Theatre | 1564 Broadway, New York, NY 10036
An American in Paris is the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. See the show right after it opens on April 12. C’est magnifique!
