New Jersey's SOMA Stage will host its 2nd annual Broadway in the Park concert September 4 at 4:30 PM with a star-studded line-up of New Jersey natives performing in Maplewood's Memorial Park Amphitheater. The afternoon will benefit the newly minted not-for-profit theatre, which aims to support and develop new works.
The line-up is scheduled to include Kennedy Caughell (Paradise Square), Dwayne Clark (Shucked), Jennifer Diamond (Ruthless!), Mandy Gonzalez (Hamilton), Laurel Harris (Jagged Little Pill), Jeremy Jordan (Newsies), Kara Lindsay (Wicked), Rob Marnell (Beautiful - The Carole King Musical), Kevin Massey (Wicked), Manu Narayan (Company), Zal Owen (Harmony), Charlie Pollock (Pretty Woman), Libby Servais (Wicked), Ashley Spencer (Rock of Ages), and Stephan Stubbins (Mary Poppins). Louis Danowsky will provide musical direction.
“After last year’s massive turn out, we are so excited to bring back Broadway in the Park, the biggest celebration of Broadway in North Jersey,” says Producing Artistic Director and Founder Dana Spialter. “The Broadway talent in SOMA is like none other, and we can’t wait for you to see this year’s lineup singing their dream roles!”
The concert is presented in partnership with the Maplewood Division of Arts and Culture as a free town event, but a suggested donation of $15 will go directly towards supporting SOMA Stage's future programming. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to The Woodland in Maplewood.
