Lights! Camera! Playhouse Ready For National Stage

Westporters know our Country Playhouse is special.

Soon, the rest of the nation will see why.

On 3 consecutive nights starting August 31, Broadway stars will perform before a live audience. The concerts will be taped, edited, then broadcast nationally. The show will be called “Stars on Stage From Westport Country Playhouse.”

Gavin Creel

Shoshana Bean (“Wicked,” “Waitress”) kicks things off. She’ll be followed by Gavin Creel (a Tony Winner in “Hello, Dolly!”; “The Book of Mormon”) on September 1. Brandon Victor Dixon (Aaron Burr in “Hamilton,” an Emmy nominee in “Jesus Christ Superstar”) completes the triple play on September 2.

There are 2 shows each night, at 7 and 9 p.m.

Westporter Andrew Wilk is the creator and executive producer of “Stars on Stage!”

This is not his first rodeo (or stage show). He was executive producer of PBS’ “Live from Lincoln Center” from 2012-19, and has won 5 Emmys for his production work.

A limited number of tickets ($75 and $20) are available to the public. Complimentary tickets are reserved for first responders, students, teachers, and groups and organizations.

    What does “broadcast nationally” mean? That’s rather cryptic; what is the network or platform?
