5th Avenue Theatre Adds GIGI Concert, Lily Tomlin & BALLROOM WITH A TWIST to 2013-14 Season
The 5th Avenue Theatre has announced the addition of three special events to its 2013/14 season: a romantic musical concert, a comedic (and show business) legend, and the kind of sensational ballroom dance you only see on TV.
Lerner and Loewe's Tony Award-winning musical, Gigi, will be presented in concert May 16-18, 2014. The musical, which has been announced for a Broadway opening in 2015, will be performed in a glamorous concert setting, complete with a revised book.
"We are so thrilled to present this musical confection on our stage," said 5th Avenue's Executive Producer and Artistic Director David Armstrong. "Based on the magnificent 1958 Academy Award-winning film, this rarely-produced musical boasts some of the most heavenly melodies in the musical theater cannon, and in a concert setting, these treasured songs will truly shine."
Next, Lily Tomlin will return to The 5th Avenue stage for two performances only, presenting an array of her greatest hits June 6-7, 2014. The show business legend played to packed houses in a limited engagement at The 5th in 2011. The 5th is delighted to have her back.
Finally, dance enthusiasts and reality television fans can celebrate the arrival of Ballroom with a Twist, coming to The 5th July 25-27, 2014. Inspired by and featuring stars from hit TV shows Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and So You Think You Can Dance, Ballroom with a Twist will have audiences dancing in the aisles.
Tickets for these three special events will go on sale to the general public January 31, 2014. Tickets may be purchased online at www.5thavenue.org, by phone at 206-625-1900, or at the Box Office at 1308 5th Avenue in downtown Seattle.
