Indiana University’s Broadway Cabaret is coming to Broadway.
On April 28, Indiana University Northwest will host the acclaimed musical theatre group, IU Broadway Cabaret, in a free, one-night-only performance at the Savannah Center Auditorium. The show begins at 5 p.m.
Someday, the talented members of the IU Broadway Cabaret will command top dollar for their work as performance professionals, just as their predecessors have gone on to enjoy successful careers on stages in New York, London and around the world. On April 28, however, Northwest Indiana residents will have an opportunity to see these skilled performers before fame’s spotlight claims them, as the group brings the sound and spectacle of musical theatre to IU Northwest.
Directed and choreographed by IU Professor of Stage Movement and Musical Theatre George Pinney, who won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography for his work on the PBS broadcast “Blast,” IU Broadway Cabaret offers audiences an energetic, Broadway-style revue show that covers a wide range of musical styles and influences. IU Broadway Cabaret was created as a performance outlet for exceptionally talented musical theatre students. Fans of this joyous theatrical genre won’t want to miss this chance to see one of IU Bloomington’s premier performance groups live at IU Northwest.
Pinney, who is head of the B.F.A. in Musical Theatre program at IU Bloomington, has directed and/or choreographed more than 150 musical theatre productions for national and international tours and for national and regional universities. He has been recognized multiple times for teaching excellence with a variety of prestigious awards, including the Friedrich Herman Lieber Award for Distinguished Teaching.
IU Northwest is pleased to host IU Broadway Cabaret as part of the IU Moveable Feast of the Arts, an initiative that brings IU Bloomington’s arts-and-culture programs and events to communities across Indiana.
IU Broadway Cabaret will perform at the IU Northwest Savannah Center Auditorium, located at 3400 Broadway in Gary, Ind., beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 28. There is no admission charge for this event, but audience members are encouraged to arrive early, as seating is limited.
