Broadway Stars to Celebrate the Works of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry This Summerby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
Calling all Little Monster and KatyCats of the thespian variety: Your moment has arrived.
The NYC-based performance series, which will be hosted at 54 Below in Manhattan, will spotlight the singers’ biggest hits and beloved fan favorites sung by Broadway’s finest players.
Broadway Loves Katy Perry, directed by Benjamin Rauhala, will include over 15 actors (with more to be announced!) hailing from celebrated shows like Newsies, Spring Awakening, Wicked, Godspell and The Book Of Mormon who will take on Perry’s biggest hits including “Firework,” “Last Friday Night,” “Roar” and “Waking Up In Vegas.” And, if you’re interested in joining the troupe for the singalong, make sure to pack your polka dot bikini: Left Shark and Kitty Purry might even make a cameo, according to the official site.
As for the night dedicated to noted theater nerd, Gagaloo? The Philip Romano-directed ode to Mother Monster promises a night that will “leave you ‘Speechless’.” (See what they did there?) The show will feature players from Wicked, Hairspray, Matilda The Musical and Heathers and promises to cover all the classics, including “Telephone,” “Poker Face” and “Paparazzi.”
