Broadway’s greatest hits with the swinging sounds of jazz.
It’s Broadway with a twist!
From the minute the curtain opens, Broadway Goes Jazz offers a fun, toe-tapping time for the whole family. The Jay Boehmer Trio and three fabulous singers will be sure to put a smile on your face!
This cabaret-style revue offers the familiarity of songs many of us grew up with as well as some hidden gems from the Broadway songbook. The performance is fast-paced and includes many songs from shows like Chicago, West Side Story, Oklahoma, Fiddler On The Roof and The Wizard Of Oz. (For a full song list download the Broadway Goes Jazz Song List.)
Broadway Goes Jazz consists of two 60 minute acts plus an intermission. The show can be customized and shortened to one 60 or 90 minute set. The set-up for the show is straight-forward with three singers backed up by a jazz trio. A PA system is all that’s required with a grand piano being a great asset to the show with its rich, full sound. You’ll feel like you’re in an intimate nightclub one minute and visiting the Broadway stage the next.
An experienced cast of singers including Blair Irwin, Cameron MacDuffee and Nathalie Nadon will guarantee a great evening of music and entertainment. These spectacular entertainers are backed up by the Jay Boehmer Trio: Michael Barber at the piano, Michael Herring on bass and Jay Boehmer (BEE-mer) on drums.
The members of this ensemble have entertained audiences in theatres across Canada including the Stratford, Shaw and Charlottetown Festivals. These catchy, new arrangements are inspired by Jay’s performances in over 40 theatre productions across Ontario.
