On Saturday, February 11, SCC students are invited to attend the Carolina Philharmonic production of “A Walk on Broadway.” Ticket prices will be only $11 for current students with ID.
Broadway Stars Edward Watts (LES MISERABLES, FANTASTICS, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST) and Marissa McGowan (LES MISERABLES, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, BONNIE & CLYDE ), join Maestro David Michael Wolff and The Philharmonic for a walk through some of Broadway’s most beloved melodies, mixed in with unexpected treasures.
Tickets can be ordered online at: http://www.carolinaphil.org/
From Maestro David Michael Wolff:
“Marissa McGowan is one of my all-time favorite Eponine’s. Her vocal and expressive range to quite something, from a rich lower register to an effortless soprano high C, all with a strikingly natural dramatic depth.
Ed Watts is equally versatile and astounding, cast across the gamut from Javert in Les Mis, to Superman, to Robert Semple in Scandalous… The two of them will make a stunning couple onstage.”
The program we’ve put together takes the audience on an emotional journey across nearly 100 years of Broadway showstoppers, from Music Man and Annie Get Your Gun to The Sound of Music, and then through modern classics like A Little Night Music, Phantom of the Opera and Les Mis.
The Philharmonic is three or four times the size of Broadway pit orchestras, so the sounds backing them up will be lusher and fuller than audiences are used to. It’s a real treat to stand on the podium and bathe in it all!”
