Lake Dillon Theatre Company presents one-weekend-only ‘Broadway Now and Then’

The Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) continues its 22nd season with the annual fall cabaret "Broadway Now And Then," an evening celebrating classic and contemporary Broadway. Performances are Sept. 23-24 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 25 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets start at $19 and may be purchased by visiting the Lake Dillon Theatre Company website at http://www.lakedillontheatre.org or by calling (970) 513-9386.

"Broadway Now and Then" will feature the classic Broadway music and also pay tribute to what is hip, new and beautiful about current Broadway.

"Musical theater is a uniquely American art form with its roots dating back more than 100 years," said Chris Alleman, LDTC producing artistic director, in a statement. "We are taking our audiences on a journey through the many successful years of Broadway, celebrating songs and shows from years ago and also presenting the music from the new shows that continue to open each year in New York."

WHY CABARET?

Originating in 19th century Paris, cabarets originally showcased poets and artists performing in tight spaces for audiences reveling in their one-of-a-kind comedy, burlesque and even sociopolitical satire. Today, cabaret is once again finding its footing among crowds seeking a more intimate and meaningful performance experience.

The Lake Dillon Theatre Company Cabaret Series offers exciting concert engagements throughout the year celebrating the music of Broadway and beyond, while introducing Summit County to local and New York-based professional artists. A cabaret is different from a fully produced musical theater performance, or even a musical revue, because the performer herself or himself is part of the presentation.
