Transcendence Theatre looks to wrap its 2013 season of Broadway Under The Stars in Jack London State Park with a two-day gala featuring some of Broadway's biggest shows.
Set for Aug. 30-31, the Gala Celebration is a two-night Broadway concert celebrating the 2013 season of Broadway Under The Stars concerts and featuring established Broadway and Hollywood performers doing songs and dances from Broadway’s biggest shows, including Wicked, Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Carousel, Gypsy, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Anything Goes, Phantom Of The Opera and many more.
Some Broadway performers scheduled to perform include:
