Five singer-dancer-actresses and a live band celebrate the rock ‘n’ roll of Broadway, the best of pop radio and 1960’s girl groups. June 29-30 is the perfect “girls nights out” as the Tower Theatre Foundation presents The Broadway Dolls.
It’s a weekend of show stoppers, rock anthems and power ballads from Mamma Mia, Grease, Chorus Line and Chicago—just to name a few. Broadway Dolls is the first installment of the Tower’s 2013 Marquee Series, sponsored by U.S. Bank and BendBroadband.
The Broadway Dolls was created in 2007 by Broadway veteran Hollie Howard while she was in the original company of Hairspray. The quintet debuted at the 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival, and has since played throughout North America and China. Their imaginative and sexy revue showcases nearly 50 classic Broadway show tunes, many of which the Dolls themselves performed in New York productions, including Mamma Mia, Grease, Spiderman, Chicago, Rock of Ages, Chorus Line and Rent. Plus, the Dolls mash up American standards like Singin’ in the Rain with current hits by Lady Gaga and Carly Rae Jepsen. They also pay homage to 1960’s girl group favorites Heatwave, One Fine Day and Leader of the Pack.
