Broadway Our Way 2019The Uptown Players divas return for another entertaining weekend of Broadway music with plenty of twists, laughs and surprises. The evening features many of your favorite actors from past Uptown Players seasons performing selections from Broadway shows, both past and present, all done with an Uptown Players twist! This year's divas will sing and dance to 30 songs from recent Broadway hits and revivals such as Guys and Dolls, Pippin, The Last Five Years, Frozen, The Color Purple, Hairspray, Next to Normal and End of the Rainbow.
This year's event includes two special guests, Anthony Fortino and Cedric Neal. Anthony starred in Uptown Players production of Catch Me If You Can in 2015 and then went on to do the Fun Home National Tour and to star in productions of Jersey Boys and Altar Boyz at regional theaters around the country. Cedric first appeared on the Uptown Players stage in 2004 as Fleetwood in The Life and appeared in numerous Uptown productions before making the move to appear on Broadway in Porgy and Bess and MoTown The Musical and then starred in MoTown The Musical in London. He recently made it to the semi-finals of The Voice UK. (Cedric will not be appearing at the May 12th performance)
