BWW Previews: WASHINGTON AND EISENSTADT PRESENT TAKE ON THE HEROES OF BROADWAY at The Studio, Carrollwood Cultural CenterWant to be part of what producer Keith Eisenstadt has described as "the most unique theatre experience available in Tampa"? Adults, 18 and over, can enjoy the music of the heroes and heroines of Broadway in Broadway Bent: Heroes.

Keith and Aaron Washington, founders of Washington and Eisenstadt present, create productions that are classics, but have a new and original way of showcasing them.

"Everyone, 18+ who loves a fun, rowdy, not too serious night of great music should come see this show," said Eisenstadt.

With no Hurricane Irma to disrupt the run like with its evil counterpart Broadway Bent: Villains in September 2017, guests can expect an interactive musical experience like no other - for two days only. During this limited run, patrons can expect the cast to interact with them, share a drink, or maybe even sit down at their table.

In The Studio, behind Carrollwood Cultural Center, audience members will enjoy a cabaret, party-like atmosphere and full service open bar, while Topher Warren, Jessica LaPollo, Richard Cubi, Stephanie Coatney, Gam Calderon, Melissa Doell, Lance Rumowicz, and PaVonne Scott perform popular pieces from favorite Broadway musicals.

That's the Broadway part. Why is it Bent?

Just like the two productions that preceded it, there is no gender attached to any song. Men sing women's and women sing men's songs.

If you're curious where a line like "I have maggots in my scrotum" fits into hero/ine music, $30 tickets are available for Friday, February 23 and Saturday February 24 at 8pm. Open bar begins at 730pm.

Keith said, "Theatre is a voice, a living, breathing being that feeds on social change. It has always been a place for people to express themselves openly and without judgement." He added, "We need that as much as possible."

He said that the message of Broadway Bent: Heroes is simple. Be a hero of your own story. Enjoy life and don't get too bogged down.

Reservations for Broadway Bent: Heroes are available by calling (813) 922-8167. For more information, visit
