City Pulse

By PK Greenfield

Passport to Broadway is a program that brings some of the most talented children from all parts of the world, country by country, to New York City for 18+ days of workshops, training and professional instruction — it culminates in a jaw-dropping performance at the end of their work and training.
This August, forty eight kids between the ages of 8 and 14 arrive from South Korea, with little or no knowledge of English, and they’ll learn about American culture, history, theater and music with some of the most talented professionals from Broadway. At the end of their intensive studies, they perform a compilation of the classics from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Soundheim and Hamlisch to Robert Lopez, Tom Kitt, Duncan Sheik and more in “Journey to America”.

At the helm of this intensive program is Creative Director and President of StudentsLive, Amy Shapiro. For over a decade she has steered the Passport to Broadway and StudentsLive programs to great heights. With the dedication and collaboration of many Broadway performers and some of the most talented creative teams in the business, Passport to Broadway is a life changing experience for students and audience members alike.

I was fortunate to catch their last show. Now is your chance to witness the awesomeness of American theater and the powerful influence of one of our greatest exports — Broadway.

Mark your calendars for August 20th and check out the website for tickets and more information:
