A playwright who needs someone to back his next show. A mobster who needs some way to please his showgirl girlfriend. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship - or a brand new musical comedy! Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters and the songs that made the 20s roar, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY brings musical comedy back with a bang!

Hailed by Time Magazine as, "Musical Theatre Gold!" and described as "A Fun Machine from Start to Finish!" by The New Yorker, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY tells the story of an aspiring young playwright newly arrived on Broadway in 1920's New York who is forced to cast a mobster's talentless girlfriend in his latest drama in order to get it produced.

The original production of BULLETS OVER BROADWAY premiered on Broadway last season at the St. James Theatre with performances beginning on March 11, 2014 and an official opening on April 10, 2014. The production received six Tony-Award nominations, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Choreography.
