Following spectacular performances at Upstairs at Vitello's, The Catalina Jazz Club and the El Caballero Country Club, Fraser Entertainment Group moves to Rockwell Table & Stage on Monday, March 16 with the critically- acclaimed ongoing series AN EVENING OF CLASSIC BROADWAY. This show welcomes a new cast of singers from Broadway, television and film.

The evening will feature songs from classic Broadway shows, such as BRIGADOON, DAMN YANKEES, A CHORUS LINE, FUNNY GIRL, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, GUYS AND DOLLS and KISS ME, KATE, along with classic songs from lesser-known shows (THE WILD PARTY, ST. LOUIS WOMAN and more).

Musical director Brad Ellis is regarded as one of the most respected and sought after composers, arrangers, and musical directors in the musical theatre community. He has enjoyed a newfound fame as the on-camera pianist on the hit television series GLEE. Lately, he has been traveling the world as Musical Director for Matthew Morrison's solo show.

In addition to his continuing role on Glee, Mr. Ellis can be seen coaching in the "Special Features" of the DVD release of Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast.

He has arranged and orchestrated for the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Philadelphia Symphony and the CD "Unexpected Dreams - Songs from The
Stars" featuring members of the LA Phil to benefit Music Cares which supports music programs in the LA schools. In concert, and on CD, Mr. Ellis has worked with Billy Joel, Angela Lansbury, Kristin Chenoweth, Scarlett Johansson, Patti LuPone, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Ariana Grande, and Jeremy Irons to name a few.
