A host of theatre artists are scheduled to take part in Broadway Sings Gaga May 8 at Highline Ballroom in Manhattan.
Scheduled to reinterpret the work of the Grammy-winning pop star are Lesli Margherita (Matilda), Liz Larsen (Beautiful), Claybourne Elder (Sunday in the Park With George), A.J. Shively (Bright Star), Nick Adams (La Cage aux Folles), Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening), Nathan Lee Graham (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Corey Mach (Godspell), Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), LaVon Fisher-Wilson (Chicago), Taylor Frey (How to Succed in Business Without Really Trying), Jeremy Pope (The View Up-Stairs), Shayna Steele (Hairspray). and Julia Mattison (Godspell).
Mach will also direct the concert, which will feature Joshua Stephen Kartes’ new arrangements of Gaga hits including “Born This Way,” “Poker Face,” “Bad Romance,” and “Paparazzi.”
Though Gaga has never appeared on Broadway, there has been a fair amount of crossover. Gaga performed a medley from Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music at the 87th annual Academy Awards in 2015. A previous Broadway salute to her music was held at Feinstein’s/54 Below in July 2015. In 2012, Gaga also tweeted a photo of herself as Miss Adelaide in her high school production of Guys and Dolls.
Order tickets to the Highline Ballroom concert, priced at $65 and $30, here. The club is located at 431 West 16th Street in Manhattan.
