The Mark Schoenfeld-Barri McPherson musical will play the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts June 13-18, 2006, according to CtNow.com. The musical is part of the Hartford theatre's 2005-2006 Broadway Series, which also includes My Fair Lady (Sept. 13-18, 2005), The Rat Pack: Live From Las Vegas (Oct. 18-23), Dr. Dolittle (Nov. 8-13), Wicked (Dec. 7-18), Golda's Balcony (March 7-12) and The Lion King (April 21-June 4).
Brooklyn, according to production notes, concerns a band of performers, who "tell a wondrous sidewalk fairy tale about a young girl searching for fame and the father she never knew. With just one clue to lead her, she lands in the city that bears her name, Brooklyn." Song titles include "Heart Behind These Hands," "Christmas Makes Me Cry," "Not a Sound," "Brooklyn Grew Up," "Creating Once Upon a Time," "Once Upon a Time," "Superlover," "Brooklyn in the Blood," "Magic Man," "Love Was a Song," "I Never Knew His Name," "The Truth," "Raven," "Sometimes," "Love Me Where I Live," "Love Fell Like Rain" and "Streetsinger."
