Best Theater Fundraiser Dallas 2010 - Broadway Our WayUptown Players
Dallas' top musical comedy stars come together every year for this gender-flipping revue that raises funds for Uptown Players. Men sing Broadway anthems written for female characters; women sing the men's songs. So you get a much darker jailhouse scene from Chicago and a sidesplitting version of "The Game" from Damn Yankees. Among the talented actors who perform in this annual extravaganza (scheduled next for May 2011) are B.J. Cleveland, Coy Covington, Sara Shelby-Martin, Denise Lee, Natalie King and Linda Leonard, all veteran pros on the DFW musical theater scene. What began as a one-night-only show many years ago is now a two-weekend event that plays to sold-out crowds and standing O's.
