Live Music Will Come to the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre This Spring for IN RESIDENCE ON BROADWAY
Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group) have just announced a new partnership that will bring a variety of artists to Broadway venues multiple times each year. In Residence on Broadway will run May through July 2019 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street).
Artists will take the Broadway stage for a limited residency of 5-10 shows over the course of 1 to 2 weeks. Performers for the 2019 spring/summer engagement will be announced in the coming weeks and tickets will be available at www.ticketmaster.com.
Last summer three unique and influential entertainment companies discovered that they all had committed to the same idea at the same time. "Over the last few years on Broadway, we've seen non-traditional Broadway shows take center stage. In a time when shows other than musicals and plays are being presented, we started dreaming about bringing our favorite entertainers to Broadway," said Matthew Rego CEO of The Araca Group.
"Live Nation is excited to partner with The Araca Group & EBG to become part of the Broadway community and bring this unique concert experience to fans in New York," said Anthony Makes, President of Live Nation in New York. "In Residence on Broadway will bring a wide range of artists to an intimate Broadway setting for an up close and personal performance."
"We established In Residence on Broadway as an opportunity for artists to bring their talents to a true Broadway stage in New York, which will be a special experience for fans," said Scott Zeiger of EBG. "The amazing team of designers will create customized stage experiences to reflect each artist's signature style."
The production team will include Tony® and Emmy® nominated lighting designer Mike Baldassari, who has worked on Broadway shows such asCabaret and major motion pictures including Ghostbusters and Sex and The City 2, five-time Tony nominated sound designer Peter Hylenski who is currently represented on Broadway with King Kong and Frozen, and Tony nominated sound designer Garth Helm. PRG will provide Lighting and Sound Equipment.
Tickets will be available through www.Ticketmaster.com online or by phone at 877-250-2929. The Lunt-Fontanne Box Office will open on Thursday, April 4, 2019.
