The Ordway Opens BROADWAY SONGBOOK: THE FIRST 100 YEARS Tonight

"Broadway Songbook: The First 100 Years of Broadway" runs tonight, August 7, through the 10th at The Ordway in St. Paul.

Celebrate the history of American musical theater by taking a journey through the first 100 years of Broadway. Hear classics from such popular shows as Annie Get Your Gun, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Fiddler on the Roof, The Music Man, Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Guys and Dolls, Gypsy and more. From the early years to the Golden Age, this show has something for everyone.

The Broadway Songbook series brings fresh insight, energy and joy to the songs you love, making every show a warm, humorous and moving portrait of musical theater legends. Conceived and directed by the Ordway's Vice President of Theatrical Programming and Producing Artistic Director, James A. Rocco, each Broadway Songbook program features a dynamic mix of composer life stories, discussion of what made their work so extraordinary, and performances by an ensemble of renowned artists from the Twin Cities musical theater, jazz and cabaret scenes.

The Ordway will reach beyond the boundaries of the Twin Cities and tour the state of Minnesota with the successful Broadway Songbook series. The premiere offering of this new touring program will begin in October 2014 with stops in Austin, Red Wing, Dawson, Detroit Lakes, St. Cloud and others.
