The Westport Country Playhouse continues to strengthen its hometown roots.
In addition to offering an open house, welcoming area young professionals — even sponsoring a blood drive — this Sunday Westport’s artistic crown jewel presents the Broadway Boys, in a concert of Broadway and holiday favorites.
The Broadway Boys are “the hottest male voices currently working on the New York stage.” And 3 of the Broadway Boys — okay, they’re actually in the band — are Westport natives.
Justin Paul is the musical director and accompanist. Dan Asher is the bassist. Drew McKeon plays drums.
All 3 grew up in Westport — and got their musical chops at Staples.
Justin currently serves as musical director/conductor for the off-Broadway hit “Altar Boyz.” Dan has performed at legendary jazz venues like Birdland and the Blue Note, while Drew tours internationally.
The upcoming concert repertoire includes holiday songs and show tunes.
This is musical entertainment at its best. You can go to Broadway — or you can stay in town and see Westport’s special Broadway Boys, in Westport’s own special theater.
