Transcendence Theatre Company's BROADWAY UNDER THE STARS Kicks Off 6/19; Lineup Set!

Transcendence Theatre Company, producer of the Broadway Under the Stars in Jack London State Historic Park concert series, announced the company of artists who will appear during the 2015 series of shows running June 19 through September 13. From June through September on select weekends, visitors to Sonoma County can conclude a day of wine tasting by attending Broadway Under the Stars, the main stage musical concert series presented by Transcendence Theatre Company in the open-air Winery Ruins of Jack London State Historic Park.

Transcendence's Broadway Under the Stars is an award-winning series of Broadway-inspired concerts featuring performers from Hollywood and New York - artists who come to the Sonoma stage directly from recent Broadway appearances. More than a standard musical revue, each concert weaves popular Broadway songs into a spectacular themed performance.

The company's featured performers have appeared on Broadway in shows such as The Book of Mormon, Mamma Mia, Les Miserables, Chicago, La Cage Aux Follies, Gypsy, Hairspray, Follies, 42nd Street, White Christmas, Million-Dollar Quartet, Mary Poppins among others.

All of the artists appearing in the Broadway Under the Stars shows have significant professional theater credits. A few members of the company stand out with particular recognition including Lexy Fridell, a hometown favorite having grown up in Sonoma and the daughter of Squire Fridell; Nicolas Dromard who returns for his fourth season with Transcendence Theatre Company and is well known to Bay Area audiences for his portrayal of Fiyero in the San Francisco production of Wicked; David Gordon who performs this season's theme song; Evan Ruggierio, the one-legged tap dancer seen at last year's Gala and who moved millions of people with his knockout performance and inspiring story when he appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' TV show.
