Way Off Broadway Cabaret

When it comes to Broadway and the musicals that play there, we’re probably most familiar with the big-budget high profile ones like Lion King and Cats. But lesser known musicals play there too.

Jan. 18-19 at Creative City Centre a group of local musical theatre artists, some with experience performing in New York, are presenting a cabaret showcasing songs from works like Spring Awakening (a rock musical set in late 19th century Germany that explores the challenges faced by teenagers when they came of age sexually back then) and Avenue Q (an autobiographical tale about the angst of youth raised in supportive “Sesame Street” type environments confronting the realities of adulthood where suddenly they’re no longer so special).

The shows both nights are at 8 p.m., and tickets are $10. For more information on Way Off Broadway visit here. And to whet your appetite here’s a performance from the Broadway cast of Spring Awakening at the 2007 Tony Awards:
