Broadway Series Presented by Curtis Bashaw and Cape Resorts, Inc.
CAPE MAY – Legendary entertainer Marilyn Maye kicks off Cape May Stage’s Broadway Series on June 20, the first of three Broadway veterans to headline the series in 2016. This year’s series, now in its eighth year, is being produced in concert with Curtis Bashaw and Cape Resorts, Inc.
“Our series allows patrons and our community here in Cape May to experience Broadway entertainers without paying premium prices,” said Roy Steinberg, the producing artistic director of Cape May Stage.
Marilyn Maye, whose 78 appearances on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show is a record, has been entertaining audiences and critics for 60 years with works drawn from the Great American Songbook.
Next in the series is Adam Pascal, an actor, singer and musician best known for his performance as Roger Davis in the original cast of Rent on Broadway in 1996. Pascal also starred in the 2005 movie version of the musical and the national tour of Rent in 2009. Pascal will be bringing his theatrical rock-n-roll style to Cape May Stage on July 18.
Finishing the Broadway Series will be Jarrod Spector on August 15. Spector, a Tony Award nominee in the role of Frankie Valli in Broadway’s Jersey Boys, will present a night of time-honored music woven together with intimate stories drawn from his career.
In addition to the Broadway Series, Cape May Stage is pleased to present its family-friendly Monday Night Series. The series began on June 6 with an evening of Indian devotional music that performers Emily and Michael Graham call “medicine for the soul.” The Monday Night Series continues on June 13 with Rock & Hark, An American Duo. Sean Harkness combines his versatile and exciting guitar skills with Abigail Rockwell, a singer/songwriter and granddaughter of artist Norman Rockwell. “Audiences should expect the unpredictable, including new twist on old classics and their own originals,” said Steinberg.
All shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for the Monday Night Series are $20 each and can be purchased online or by calling the box office. Tickets for the Broadway Series are $53 each and include an after party at The Washington Inn. Subscriptions to the three-show series are also available at a discounted rate.
