South Florida – The hilarious and heartwarming holiday show It’s A Fabulous Life celebrates its 10 year anniversary with a homecoming from November 28, 2012 through December 2, 2012 in the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Please note: This show contains mature language and content.
“Broward Center 2012-13 Pride Series is a Broadway Global top pick, because Pride Series honors the GLBT and friends of GLBT community. Offering It’s A Wonderful Life to Florida theatre audiences should be praised and shared as Broward Center once again leads in artistic choices.” Theatre Chat.
Broadway Global’s top pick Music Director Eric Alsford brings the music to life, with fabulous music sung by some of Florida’s favorite performers.
Opening night is hosted by David Leddick, author, bon vivant and the inspiration for the character of Arthur the Angel. David Sexton originally wrote the gay musical take on It’s A Wonderful Life as a holiday show for the Miami Gay Men’s Chorus. That production, was directed by Broadway director Richard Jay-Alexander to sold-out run. Richard Jay-Alexander is also known for directing Barbra Streisand concerts.
Sexton decided to make the show a full-fledged musical, so Sexton reworked the book and wrote original songs with composers Albert Evans (Pageant), Andrew Sargent (Rent Boys) and Carbonell Award winning musical director Eric Alsford, a Theatre Chat favorite.
It’s A Wonderful Life was an instant smash in its first production at the Broward Center. It’s A Wonderful Life has been produced around the country. In something of a holiday tradition, it returns to the Broward Center as part of the Broward Center 2012-13 Pride Series presented by Broward Center for the Performing Arts and Pride South Florida.
The musical follows Joe as he is having a very rough holiday season. His parents don’t want him to bring his new boyfriend home and he is trying to work on a chaotic holiday show for a local gay theater company. In a moment of desperation he wishes he had never been born gay. An angel comes down and shows him how life would have been different and the the results are not at all what Joe expected.
This year’s delightful cast includes drag legend, Daisy Deadpetals and OBIE Award Winner for When Pigs Fly Jay Rogers. This show contains mature language and content. Performances are Wednesday, November 28, 2012 to Friday, November 30, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 3 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $35 and are available through the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office at 954-462-0222 or online at www.BrowardCenter.org.
