A century of show tunes
After the smashing success of last year's musical revue 100 Years of Broadway, Neil Berg decided an encore was necessary. A composer and lyricist, Berg comes to the Harris Center for the Arts with a new repertoire of songs from the past 101 years of Broadway greatness. He is joined by Dustin Brayley, Lawrence Clayton, Roger Cohen, Rob Evan, Rita Harvey and Natalie Toro—no strangers to the stages of the Great White Way—for a performance of a wide array of Broadway hits. Including the classic lyricism of Rodgers and Hart, Andrew Lloyd Webber's haunting melodies and the psychological torment of Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz's soaring songs, Berg brings music from the ever-evolving Broadway stage to one dynamic show. Neil Berg's 101 Years of Broadway, $12-$45, 7 p.m. on Monday, May 5, at the Harris Center for the Arts, 10 College Parkway in Folsom; (916) 608-6888; www.harriscenter.net.
