Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre is celebrating their 30th Anniversary Season and has entertained an impressive 4,300,000 people to date—with incredible customer service, great shows, and delicious food and drink.
Kicking off 2023, the Theatre proudly presents the magnificent Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, playing January 6 through February 11, 2023.
“The age-old Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to life on stage in this fun-filled, colorful musical that has entertained audiences for over 40 years," explains General Manager Melissa Vogt.
English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber teamed up with collaborator, author, and lyricist Tim Rice, to tell this compelling story from the Old Testament about how Joseph is given a coat of many colors by his father, Jacob. The coat creates jealousy among his eleven brothers, who turn on him, but Joseph ultimately rises above to become a Pharaoh’s advisor.
“The story is told through a kaleidoscope of song and dance; the musical is set in the desert of the Middle East many centuries ago,” adds Vogt.
The score includes favorites like Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door, and Go, Go, Go Joseph. The regional theatre premier of Jersey Boys plays from February 17 through April 9, 2023. “This show— the Winner of Best Musical at both the Tony Awards® and Olivier Awards®—goes behind the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons,” adds Vogt. The story is based on the secret of a 40-year friendship as four blue-collar kids work their way from the streets of New Jersey to become one of pop-music history’s greatest triumphs. Some of the chart-topping hits include Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Dawn, My Eyes Adored You, and many more!
“In addition to the spectacular shows, Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre features a great cocktail bar where customers can meet and socialize before dinner, we have a gift shop with many unique items, and an art gallery featuring local artists that guests can peruse throughout the evening.,” adds Vogt.
In addition to the Main Theatre, Broadway Palm also offers Children’s Theatre, Off Broadway Palm, Concerts, and Live Streaming. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday evenings with selected matinees. Main Theatre tickets are $65 to $95, with children and group prices available. Tickets are now on sale and can be reserved by calling 239-278-4422, visiting BroadwayPalm.com, or by stopping by the box office at 1380 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.
