Directed by Elly Lichenstein & Nathan Cummings
The third annual Broadway Bash, Cinnabar Theater’s signature gala fundraiser, showcased the very best of Cinnabar: professional actors and singers together with the best and brightest from our Young Repertory.
Artistic Director Elly Lichenstein and Education Director Nathan Cummings staged the musical revue, featuring never-before-seen performances of old classics and new favorite Broadway tunes by popular professionals and promising up-and-comers.
Hosted by veteran Broadway and Bay Area actor Clark Sterling, the Broadway Bash featured favorite Cinnabar actors including Dani Beem, Mary Gannon-Graham, Michael Van Why and more. They were joined onstage by many of Cinnabar’s talented Young Repertory kids, performing featured duets and group numbers. Michael McGurk (Emcee, Cabaret) visited from New York to offer one-week workshop with select Young Rep kids to create and polish a special number for the show.
The evening was accentuated by Broadway-themed silent and live auctions, culminating in a sneak preview of the upcoming season of shows at Cinnabar. It was an evening to support and celebrate all of Cinnabar Theater!
