Now Playing


I'm Sitting on Top of the World

Loaded with big laughs colorful characters and the songs that made the '20s roar, Bullets Over Broadway, The Musical is bringing musical comedy back with a bang.  Based on the screenplay o the acclaimed 1994 film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, this six-time Tony-nominated musical features existing hits from the 1920s, including "Let's Misbehave," "Up a Lazy River," "Tain't Nobody's Bizness If I  Do" and "Hold that Tiger."

David Shayne is a straight-arrow playwright who plans to stand firm against compromising his work but quickly abandons that stance when his producer finds a backer to mount his show on Broadway.  There's just one catch, however: the backer is a mobster who sees Shayne's play as a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend.  Throw in an aging diva, a savant hit-man and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and this is one Broadway show that is sure to knock ém dead.

Bullets Over Broadway is a love letter to the Golden Age of Broadway, filled with unforgettable vintage songs that audiences will remember and love.  With a handful of over-the-top character roles, and a high-stepping ensemble, this is a perfect choice for audiences looking for a big, splashy and wildly entertaining production.
