American Showstoppers: An Evening of Cy Coleman
Saturday, October 18 | 7:30 p.m. | Schimmel Center

Broadway composer Cy Coleman once summed up his show business philosophy in a conversation with conductor-arranger Fred Barton: “I like to entertain.” And entertain he did, in a prolific series of the most high-octane, brassy Broadway scores ever written, including Sweet Charity, Seesaw, Little Me, Barnum, The Will Rogers Follies, and Broadway’s ultimate big-band swing show, City of Angels.  His shelf was lined with Tony Awards and his songs set millions of toes tapping throughout his over 40-year career.

On Saturday, October 18, stars from Coleman’s musicals including: Dee Hoty and Sam Harris, Terri White, as well as Kevin Earley, Deidre Goodwin, Damon Kirsche, Jesse Luttrell, Karen Murphy, Lindsay Roginski, and Leslie Stevens take the Schimmel stage. Fred Barton, collaborator with Cy Coleman on three of his productions, brings the powerful pulse of Coleman’s Broadway sound back where it belongs, front and center, with a hot swing orchestra and a cast of 20 Broadway singers and dancers.

$5 student balcony tickets are available for advance purchase in person at the box office. Student rush orchestra tickets (subject to availability) are available for purchase at the box office on the day of the performance. Any student with a valid photo ID is eligible.
