2012-13 Broadway Season Announcement

On Tuesday, February 7, The Bushnell hosted a free event in Mortensen Hall at which we officially unveiled the 2012-2013 BROADWAY SEASON!

The presentation included a video clips from this year’s remaining Broadway shows (The Addams Family, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof and Come Fly Away), video clips from next year’s shows, and some updates and a few words from our own Scott Galbraith, Vice-President, Programs.

Our Ensign Darling Vocal Fellows performed in the Promenade Gallery as guests arrived and, as a special surprise, we brought in the New York cast of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET to perform. And, in order to include EVERYONE in the event, we tweeted the highlights in real time. If you missed the event, check out The Bushnell Twitter for the play-by-play.
