The Best of Broadway comes to the Mayo Performing Arts Center This weekend!
Take an unforgettable journey through the music of one of the world’s most successful and prolific musical theater composers, performed by Broadway vets who starred in the shows. Enjoy songs from the powerful rock musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, the thrilling strains of Evita, the playfulness of Cats, the soaring passion of Phantom of the Opera and many other Andrew Lloyd Webber gems.
What makes this Webber show so special is that three of these performers actually starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber shows on Broadway as well as on national and world tours. Raymond Saar (Raoul in Phantom of the Opera in San Francisco and Marius in Les Miserables on Broadway), Diane Ketchie (Carlotta in Phantom of the Opera, Broadway and San Francisco) and Valerie Perri (Eva Peron in the First National Tour and Second World Tour of Evita) have combined credits from Broadway and Off-Broadway, have made guest artist appearances with major symphony orchestras, and have appeared in concert everywhere from Carnegie Hall to a command performance at the White House. The musical genius of Andrew Lloyd Webber and the extraordinary talent of these performers create a memorable and exciting evening of entertainment.
Andrew Lloyd Webber is the winner of six Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, three Grammy awards, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. Mr. Webber at one time had five shows running in London and three on Broadway simultaneously. This evening of blockbuster hits will present some of the extraordinary work of this musical giant.
