NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group) announced a new partnership that will bring a variety of artists to perform at Broadway venues.
In Residence on Broadway will run May through July 2019 at the historic, 1,500-capacity Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, located at 205 West 46th Street.
Performers for the 2019 edition of the program not been announced as of yet, but the program will see artists taking the stage for a limited residency of 5-10 shows over the course of 1 to 2 weeks.
The Residence on Broadway follows Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Springsteen on Broadway’ residence at the Walter Key Theatre in 2017 and 2018. The shows drew rave reviews and saw the boss perform a total of 236 shows, grossing over $113 million.
“Over the last few years on Broadway, we’ve seen non-traditional Broadway shows take center stage. In a time when shows other than musicals and plays are being presented, we started dreaming about bringing our favorite entertainers to Broadway,” said Matthew Rego of The Araca Group.
The production team will include award-winning lighting designer Mike Baldassari, who has worked on Broadway shows such as Cabaret and major motion pictures including Ghostbusters and Sex and The City 2, and five-time Tony-nominated sound designer Peter Hylenski who is currently represented on Broadway with King Kong and Frozen, and Tony-nominated sound designer Garth Helm.
Production company PRG has been tapped to provide lighting and sound equipment for the residencies.
