Todd Ellison’s Broadway Moves to the Bronx
One of “Broadway’s electric conductors,” according to the New York Times, Todd Ellison has travelled up and down the Great White Way, lending his musical direction to everything from Annie to Spamalot to cabs with novelty horns. In this revue, he wields the baton like Zeus handling a thunderbolt as he highlights musical classics from the Bronx side of the tracks. Yet he doesn’t do it alone. Four singers take the spotlight alongside him: Ashley Blanchett, who’s currently starring in Beautiful: The Carole King Story; Klea Blackhurst, who played the title role in last year’s Hello Dolly; Gavin Lodge of Ellison’s Annie; and Thom Allison from Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Lehman Center for the Performing Arts
Lehman Center for the Performing Arts hosts a lot of firsts. From Jose Feliciano to Russian music institutions, many performing artists have never played in the Bronx before they come to the Center. That reality is part of what prompted its founding in the first place three decades ago, in an effort to prove that borough residents didn’t have to travel to Manhattan or tunnel inside their television sets to experience diverse, live cultural programming. So far, that’s included concerts by luminaries such as Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, and Johnny Mathis in addition to folk dance, ballet, and Latino comedy showcases.
