Georgia Ensemble Theatre Finishes Season On A Hilarious Note with BULLETS OVER BROADWAY
Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), the professional North Fulton theatre company, will finish its 26th season with the over-the-top, 1920s gangster romp that isBullets Over Broadway The Musical by Woody Allen. Based on the film Bullets Over Broadway by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, the production will be directed by GET Associate Artistic Director James A. Donadio, with musical direction by S. Renee Clark and choreography by Lauren Brooke Tatum. It runs April 11th through April 28th, 2019 at the company's home in the Roswell Cultural Arts Center and is graciously sponsored by The Malon D. Mimms Company.
In the 1920s, struggling playwright David Shayne can't get his play produced on Broadway. When a backer finally comes along, there's a catch. Nick Valenti will put up the money, but he wants his talentless girlfriend Olive to have a starring role - and since he's a mob boss, Valenti gets what he wants.
Bullets Over Broadway is an over-the-top story of the Golden Age of Broadway mixed with the excess of the Roaring 20s, the hit songs of Cole Porter, and the comic genius of Woody Allen, all put together to make a splashy musical delight. (Adult themes and language, not suitable for minors).
The cast of Bullets Over Broadway features Rachel Sorsa, Chase Peacock and Hayden Rowe in lead roles along with LaLa Cochran, Byron Hays, Maggie Birgel, Megan Wheeler, Patrick Coleman, Blake Fountain and Luis R. Hernandez. The ensemble for the production includes Paige McCormick, Kiley Washington, Bonnie Harris, Emily Nedvidek, Dayanari Umana, Alex Renee Hubbard, Nicholas Anthony, Fenner Eaddy, Zac Phelps, Christopher Holton and Chris E. Ciulla.
