'If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway.'

About the Concert

Rufus Wainwright teamed up with Grammy and Tony-winning music director Stephen Oremus to redefine dozens of the most beloved gems in the Great American Songbook, all love songs from Broadway musicals. Wainwright's recontextualizations, performed exclusively by men and to men, fortify the songs' universality as expressions of love.

The show featured David Byrne, Brent Carver, Boy George, Josh Groban, Brennan Hall, Ezra Koenig, Steven Page, and Rufus Wainwright.

If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway redefines dozens of the most beloved love duets in the Great American Songbook, performed exclusively by men and to men. Drawing on a century of stage hits and featuring a full Broadway orchestra, this groundbreaking evening will showcase Wainwright and an international spectrum of pop, jazz and musical theatre stars in unexpected, entirely enchanting pairs singing about the universality of love.

If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway was performed on Saturday, June 14 for one night only at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts.

Alan is a third year undergraduate student at York University, in Toronto. He has had a passion for the performing arts ever since he saw the original production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Alan has eleven years of intensive dance training under his belt, and in 2006 was the Canadian National Ballroom Champion in his age category. As a performer, Alan has been seen on stage at the Bathurst Street Theatre (now the Randolph Theatre), The FLATO Markham Theatre, The Leah Posluns Theatre, The Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts, and many more.

Alan first started blogging about theatre in 2011 with his now defunct blog, Broadway Toronto. In March 2013, Alan joined the team at BroadwayWorld Toronto and continued his foray into arts journalism. In February of 2014, Alan became the Senior Editor for the Toronto division of BroadwayWorld.com – and since then has expanded the regional coverage to include much of Southern Ontario, as well as many of the smaller professional theatre companies in the city.

A long term theatre fan, Alan is grateful to be a part of the Toronto arts community in any capacity.

“I’m incredibly fortunate that I’ve found a way to be involved with our arts community in the position that I have. The Toronto theatre community is made up of some of the kindest and friendliest people I know – and I look forward to serving the community by continuing the high standard of coverage expected of BroadwayWorld.”
