West End and Broadway favourites can be heard on stage in Hertfordshire this May Ban Holiday weekend.
Back to Broadway comes to the Gordon Craig Theatre, in Stevenage, tonight (Sunday).
The show is a celebration of all that is best about musical theatre, from the heartbreaking beauty and power of Memory, Music of the Night and Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, to the feel-good energy of Summer Nights and Footloose.

In Back to Broadway, 30 of the best-loved tunes from Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, Les Miserables, Grease, The Lion King, West Side Story and many more are performed live on stage.
Each song is interwoven by a narrator who gives the audience just a little of the history and plotline of each musical, allowing you to step straight into the story.
Proclaimed as “one of the top touring musical theatre productions to see” by Musical Theatre News, Back to Broadway combines captivating performances with dazzling costumes, stunning lighting effects and an amazing New York setting, as it brings the best of Broadway and London’s West End together on stage.
