Balboa Theater, San Diego, CA - February 23, 2012

We were completely enchanted & engrossed not only with the vocal performances, but the exceptional musicians providing the accompaniment. What a pleasure to hear a man with such passion bring his talents to San Diego. Please thank [Neil] for coming to San Diego, and beg him to keep returning.

Marin Center, San Rafael, CA - February 19, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, I saw Neil Berg's 102 Years of Broadway concert again - twice within 6 days, but different enough shows! This time it was in San Rafael, and I liked it even better - I don't know how the wonderful performers manage to top themselves! Chuck Wagner sang the heck out of his songs and charmed the audience. In addition to the highlights from last week, memorable moments: Andrea Rivette singing EVITA's "Don't Cry For Me," Andrea and Sandra Joseph singing the scene at the end of Act I in WICKED (this was the song that made me cry this time), and Ron Bohmer and Sandra singing the 1st PHANTOM's Lair scene. And I need to mention Dustin Brayley, the "new kid" who sang an amazing "Unchained Melody" that earned him a curtain call he didn't even come out for! Dustin has a wonderful voice, and I'll be looking for him on Broadway! Also need to mention Neil's astounding piano-playing prowess - he ripped through Billy Joel's "Italian Restaurant" so impressively that *I* felt tired for him, even though *he* seemed energized! Throughout the concert, it's amazing how Neil manages to make you forget that there isn't an orchestra behind him.

San Jose Rep, San Jose, CA - February 14-18, 2012

The current show at San Jose Rep, "101 Years of Broadway" is outstanding. Only 4 more nights to see this very professional show including a live band, amazing. This show exceeded our expectations. The actual stars from Broadway have fantastic voices and sing from some of the finest Broadway shows of the century. Highly recommend, don't miss it!

From Louisa
Camden Opera House, Rockport, ME - February 10, 2012

Friday night held a special treat for us, besides dinner with good friends: Neil Berg's "100 Years of Broadway," a Bay Chamber winter concert.

WOW!

Neil Berg is a very successful composer/lyricist – "The Prince and the Pauper," "The Twelve," "The Man Who Would Be King," "Time and Scrooge," "Heidi," and on and on... He oozes music and knowledge about the history of Broadway. He puts together this show where he asks major Broadway stars to join him in singing and dancing many of the songs/dances that they, themselves, have sung "on broadway." Along the way, we all learned a little Broadway history and some "insider" tales.

Berg played the piano, and there was a drummer and an electric guitar player. And boy could Berg play the piano!

This show started with Natalie Toro singing some of the major songs from "Evita," in which she starred. She also had major roles in "A Tale of Two Cities," "Les Miserables," "Cats," and "A Christmas Carol." Her gorgeous voice is laced with passion.

Rita Harvey is a major Broadway star, probably best known for five years as Christine in "The Phantom of the Opera." She's married to Berg, and she has an astonishing soprano – clear and true.

Danny Zolli is probably best known for "Jesus Christ Superstar," and he blew us out of the Camden Opera House with some of that music–but not before singing "Sherry," from "Jersey Boys," which made us all want to sing along and get up and dance.

Ted Louis Levy is a master tap dancer with a mellow voice and a soft-shoe pleasing manner onstage. He made his Broadway debut in "Black & Blue."

David Elder danced and sang "Singing in the Rain," a la Fred Astaire style. He's been in "42nd Street, "Kiss Me Kate," "Once Upon A Mattress," "Damn Yankees," "Guys and Dolls," "Titanic," "Beauty and the Beast," and "Curtains."

Were we ever spoiled or what???

One of the joys of living in a small town with a huge cultural component is that we get to see traveling shows like this one. The Camden Opera House was sold out.

It's Sunday now, and we're still walking around humming bits of songs we heard Friday night. And, we've checked our stash of Broadway CDs to see what's there.

The show ended – after three hours with an intermission – with "Seasons of Love" from "Rent." We think we'll order some of the Broadway DVDs and have some fun on these cold winter nights. If this show comes to a place near you, GO!
