TIMELESS AWARD-WINNING BROADWAY MUSICAL
LOVE STORY “AIDA” BACK AT BROWARD CENTER
Presented by Slow Burn Theatre Company, the Tony-Award-winning Broadway musical version of Aida will burst into the Amaturo Theatre, at the Broward Center, for a limited time.
Adapted from the original opera epic by Elton John with lyrics by Tim Rice, the show won four Tony Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Performance by a Leading Actress for Heather Headley. This musical was the pair’s first collaboration following the phenomenal success of their musical contribution to Disney’s animated movie The Lion King.
Based on Verdi’s original opera, this contemporary musical reboots the story of the timeless bond between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier. As forbidden love blossoms between them, the young lovers are forced to face death or part forever.
Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
With a pop-rock score that features stirring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida is a modern crowd-pleaser that embraces multi-cultural casting and exuberant dancing, staging and singing.
Now on stage, through May 7, 2017. Performances are evenings at 7:30 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $ 22 to $60 at the box office located at 201 S.W. 5th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Purchase by phone at 954-462-0222 or call Ticketmaster.
