News   Brooklyn Celebrates 200th Performance; TV Appearances, Too
The new musical at Broadway's Plymouth Theatre, Brooklyn, will celebrate its 200th performance Friday, April 15.

The cast of Brooklyn will also perform at Variety's 20th Anniversary Children's Charity Telethon April 17. Ramona Keller will perform her show-stopping "Raven," and Horace V. Rogers and Shelley Thomas will offer the musical's finale, "Streetsinger." PAX-TV will broadcast the annual fundraiser live; tune in from 1-1:45 PM ET.

And, Brooklyn title player Eden Espinosa will perform the show's best-known tune, "Once Upon a Time," on "Good Morning America — Weekend" on Sunday, April 24. "Good Morning America" airs on ABC-TV; check local listings.

Directed and choreographed by Big River's Jeff Calhoun, Brooklyn began previews Sept. 23, 2004, and officially opened Oct. 21 at the Plymouth Theatre. The musical, 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."

The Plymouth Theatre is located at 236 West 45th Street. Brooklyn plays Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesday-Saturday nights at 8 PM, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM.
