Broadway in Love: A Spring Concert
Originally scheduled for February 13, 2022, but postponed due to COVID. NEW DATE: Sunday, April 17, 2022.
Bring your sweetheart to this one-night-only
Valentine’s Eve Easter Sunday celebration of Broadway love songs from such legends as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Lorenz Hart, Alan Jay Lerner, and Cole Porter.
Up until the 1960s, most of the great love songs that singers performed—and that couples danced to and fell in love to—came from Golden Age Broadway musicals. Brad Handshy, who created our consistently sold-out “Broadway by the Decade” series, showcases some highly romantic gems from these musicals (and others!) to bring you a specially curated concert of Broadway’s greatest love songs—old and new, serious and comic—featuring many of your favorite SBMT singers. The show will present love songs from such well-known shows as Phantom of the Opera; The Boyfriend; They’re Playing Our Song; Carousel; Big River; The Fantasticks; I Do! I Do!; West Side Story; Annie Get Your Gun; Fiddler on the Roof; Show Boat; Kiss Me, Kate; and Oklahoma! In addition, you will be surprised to discover more than a dozen tunes from lesser-known musicals like Cyrano, Very Warm For May; Dames at Sea; Romance, Romance; Passion; Irma La Douce; Bells Are Ringing; Music Box Revue of 1923; Louisiana Purchase; City of Angels; Babes in Arms; High Button Shoes; Kismet; Carmelina; New Faces of 1968; and Carnival.
