The national tour of Woody Allen’s musical comedy, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY will make its Philadelphia premiere, kicking off the new Broadway Philadelphia season from Oct 27 – Nov 1 at the Academy of Music. Broadway Philadelphia is presented collaboratively by the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and the Shubert Organization. BULLETS OVER BROADWAY premiered last season on Broadway and received six Tony-Award nominations, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Choreography. The tour is under the direction of Jeff Whiting who worked on the Broadway production. Original choreography will be replicated.
The production, set in the 1920’s, tells the tale of a playwright who needs someone to back his next show and a mobster who is looking for some way to please his less than talented showgirl girlfriend.
