Ah Men! The Boys of Broadway Sitnik Theater of the Lackland
Sept. 21, 2013 / 8pm
Betty Buckley Opens the
2013-14 Centenary Stage Company Season
in the Sitnik Theater
of the David and Carol Lackland Center
Broadway’s legendary leading lady BETTY BUCKLEY will kick off Centenary Stage Company’s new season with a memorable performance to highlight a grand theatrical celebration. From Cats to Sunset Boulevard, she has dominated the stage like no other, and CSC brings the “Voice of Broadway” to the Lackland Center on Saturday, September 21st at 8 PM for the 2013-2014 Season Opening Gala.
In her new Broadway revue Ah Men! The Boys of Broadway, Buckley sings some of her favorite songs sung by male characters from Broadway shows, including numbers from Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Pippin, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles.
“Ms. Buckley’s show is a witty, powerfully sung female occupation of male territory, waged with good humor and gusto.”
- The New York Times
Buckley won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella, the Glamour Cat, in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, and also starred in Triumph of Love, Sunset Boulevard, 1776, Pippin and many more Broadway hits. She's recorded a dozen albums, including the Grammy-nominated concert recording Stars and the Moon: Betty Buckley Live at The Donmar, and starred in such TV series as Eight is Enough, HBO's Oz and the 2010 miniseries The Pacific.
The Season Opening Gala with Betty Buckley will begin with a pre-show reception at 6:30 PM in the Kutz Black Box Theater of the Lackland Center. This year’s reception will include some surprise entertainment to accompany specialty custom brews provided by Hackettstown’s own Homebrew University and a selection of New York style hors d’oeuvres. A silent auction will take place throughout the evening lead by the Old Souk Trading Company and a cash bar will be available in the lobby.
The performance by Betty Buckley will begin at 8 PM in the Sitnik Theater of the Lackland Center, and a limited VIP “Meet and Greet” with the artist will happen during the on-stage post show reception. CSC representatives will also be selling 50/50 tickets throughout the evening to benefit CSC’s Arts Education Programs and the Young Audience Series that tours to schools throughout the state.
Tickets for the performance of Betty Buckley are $40 in the Orchestra and $35 in the Balcony. Tickets for the pre-show reception with Orchestra seating are $60. Special VIP tickets, which include the pre-show reception, the performance with orchestra seating, and the post-show “Meet and Greet” will be offered at $100.
