Broadway in the park //
In cooperation with the weimar GmbH
When Frank Sinatra crooned »If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,« he created the hymn for New York City’s longest north-south boulevard – Broadway! What Hollywood is to the movie world, Broadway is to the theatre scene. It has been the birthplace of world-famous, blockbuster musicals of every kind.
The genre of musicals has undergone radical development since it was first established. Though musicals range from purely commercial to socially critical, they have always reflected on the contemporary trends of their times while maintaining a connection to tradition. The overwhelming success of the genre is proof that it has become a permanent fixture of the international cultural and theatre scene. Reason enough to dedicate this year’s open-air concert night to musicals. So get ready to put on the Ritz as we musically dazzle you in the Weimarhallenpark until it shines like New York’s Times Square.
