A host of artists from various genres will head to Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre this year as part of In Residence on Broadway, a new concert series developed by a trio of entertainment companies: Live Nation, The Araca Group, and Entertainment Benefits Group.

The series, running May through July, will highlight multiple performers, each playing a limited engagement of 5–10 shows at the Broadway space. Among the participating artists is former The Smiths frontman Morrissey, who, as previously reported, will take the stage May 2–11. A full roster will be announced in the coming weeks.

A design team, including lighting designer Mike Baldassari and sound designers Peter Hylenski and Garth Helm, will collaborate with each resident artist to create an aesthetic catered to their particular style.

The project marks a producing partnership between three companies, each with a history of involvement in live theatre in their own expertise: events promoter and venue operator Live Nation, merchandising firm Araca, and benefits program developer EBG. “Over the last few years on Broadway, we’ve seen non-traditional Broadway shows take center stage,” says Araca Group CEO Matthew Rego. “In a time when shows other than musicals and plays are being presented, we started dreaming about bringing our favorite entertainers to Broadway.”

The 46th Street space has also recently been home to concert engagements by Kristin Chenoweth and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
