A note from Andy Señor, Jr.:
“Viva Broadway isn’t only a celebration of Broadway, but a celebration of our community as Hispanic theatre artists. Being able to be here in Miami, onstage with some of my childhood friends and long time collaborators is a dream come true. And performing with this top notch group of high school students brings it all full circle.”
“Viva Broadway is the kick off event for District Stage Company. It has a … 17 piece orchestra, a couple of Tony Award winners, 14 exceptional high school students and LOTS of heart!
This event, unlike the cabarets, is on the MainStage which holds 900 people.We are going to bring the house down Latin style!”
Come out to see this great event featuring our FIU Alumni and Grammy Award winner Secada! Tickets for Broadway Viva are $35-$55, $100 for VIP (which includes a post-show cocktail with the cast) and can be purchased by visiting smdcac.org or calling the Box Office at 786-573-5300.
