Legends of Broadway

Ron Raines (Tony Award and three-time Emmy Award Nominee), known to millions of Americans as the beguiling, villainous Alan Spaulding on CBS’ Guiding Light comes to Peoria Civic Center Theater in LEGENDS OF BROADWAY. Raines, who’s recent vibrant Broadway performances include the iconic Daddy Warbucks in Annie (2013), Joseph Pulitzer in the hit Disney musical Newsies (2012), and Ben Stone in Follies (2012 Tony Award Nomination), joins forces with legendary Broadway Musical Director, Don Pippin (Tony Award, Emmy Award, Drama Desk Award, Gold Record) for a delightful program showcasing some of Broadway’s most beloved music. Featuring Broadway talents as legendary as the songs they perform, LEGENDS OF BROADWAY is a uniquely intimate and amusing walk through the lives and experiences of Broadway luminaries as they bring the great American Musical Theater Songbook to life. A truly special evening for audiences of all ages! LEGENDS OF BROADWAY will be presented at the Peoria Civic Center Theater on March 27th, 2015 at 7:30 pm. Ticket prices start at $25, and are available online at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations, or at the Peoria Civic Center Box Office, by calling: (309) 673-3200.
