Broadway’s Biggest Stars Return to Stars in the Alley on May 10th

With the Tony Awards just around the corner, Broadway is currently in the middle of a bustling awards season. The events leading up to the night of the awards – June 9th – are almost as exciting as the ceremony itself, with star-studded happenings that feature a parade of Broadway’s glitterati and the theater’s most dynamic talents. One of these beloved traditions is Stars in the Alley, which takes place annually in that iconic passageway between 44th and 45th Streets known as Shubert Alley.

The Broadway League has announced that this year’s Stars in the Alley will be held on May 10, 2019 at 1 p.m. One of the best thing about the concert is that it is entirely free for the public to attend. As is always the case, the event will be packed with performances from a long list of Broadway shows. Stars in the Alley is produced by the Broadway League and it is sponsored by United Airlines.

This year’s concert will be hosted by Beetlejuice star and Tony nominee Alex Brightman, with Aladdin’s current “Genie of the Lamp” Michael James Scott serving as the backstage host.

Musicals that are scheduled to participate include:

Ain’t Too Proud
Aladdin
Beautiful: The Carol King Musical
Beetlejuice
Be More Chill

Come From Away

Waitress
Wicked

Broadway plays will also be represented at the event, with cast members from The Ferryman, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 &2, Ink and What the Constitution Means to Me on hand.

Also on tap for the festivities will be Stephanie Torns (Waitress), Jenn Colella (Come from Away), Ben Crawford (The Phantom of the Opera), Andrew Barth Feldman (Dear Evan Hansen), Jeremy Jordan (Waitress), Caitlin Kinnunen (The Prom), Sarah Stiles (Tootsie), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom), Orfeh (Pretty Woman), Christiani Pitts (King Kong), George Salazar (Be More Chill), as well as an array of other Tony-nominated performers.

The line-up of performers, plays and musicals is subject to change, and the event will be held rain or shine.
