Broadway is Coming to Rochester in a Big Way!

RBTL 2018-19 Broadway Season

The Rochester Broadway Theatre League (RBTL) is presenting a huge lineup of hits this year for its Rochester audiences. The 2018-2019 season boasts Broadway box office hits like A Bronx Tale, the revival of Fiddler on the Roof, Chicago, Miss Saigon, Waitress and Hamilton.

The Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus is combining their upcoming Broadway concert on June 16, 2018 with the RBTL shows. How, you may ask.

The RGMC is raffling off two season tickets to the RBTL 2018-19 season (approximate value $900) and will select the winner of those season tickets at the RGMC Broadway show. Raffle tickets are $10 each and available from any RGMC chorus or board member or by purchasing tickets through the link below. Tickets purchased online will receive stubs from the RGMC business manager.

The chorus is only raffling off a total of 500 tickets to limit your chances of winning. The winner will be announced at the RGMC Broadway concert on June 16, 2018 at Hochstein Concert Hall. Winners need not be present to win. Make Broadway a part of your future and join us in this exciting raffle and at the RGMC Broadway concert.

RGMC Members Share the Stage with Patti LuPone

Patti LuPone with members of the RGMC

On Sunday, April 29th, 21 members of the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus, along with Artistic Director, Dr. Robert Strauss, performed onstage with Broadway legend Patti LuPone.

Of the performance, Strauss said, “In our history, we have been so fortunate to work with some extraordinary artists, but singing with Ms. LuPone will be a memory we cherish. The fact that this is happening during our 35th anniversary, is just icing on the cake!”

The chorus sang five numbers with Ms. LuPone, “Ya Got Trouble” (The Music Man), “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” (Guys & Dolls), “Blow, Gabriel, Blow!” (Anything Goes), Sleepy Man (The Robber Bridegroom), and “Some Other Time” (On the Town), each garnering a thunderous ovation for the chorus each time she acknowledged the RGMC. We were so grateful for the opportunity, and thank the organizers of the concert for having asked us to participate!
