The Mesquite Arts Theatre presents Neil Berg’s widely acclaimed 100 Years of Broadway, a musical revue of Broadway’s most celebrated shows! 100 Years of Broadway recreates the greatest moments from the finest productions of the century, such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Jekyll & Hyde; and stars some of the best singing talents in the DFW metroplex: Mesquite Arts Theatre veterans Tom Briscoe, Emily Reyna Croy and Dennis H. Gullion; Mesquite Arts Theatre newcomers Doris Villarreal and Ursula Villarreal; Rockwall Summer Musicals stars Molly Pope and Robert Richardson; Repertory Company Theatre member Jimmy-Lee Beard; Oh Look Performing Arts Center star Jennifer Sowle; Amber Does Dallas member Hazel Gray; and The Vagabond Players of Terrell member Keith Craker.
NEIL BERG is the composer/lyricist of the hit off-Broadway musical The Prince and the Pauper, which ran for two years at the Lamb’s Theater in New York City. The New York Times described it as “…soaring on the wings of theatrical fun.” Berg is currently writing the music for the Broadway bound musical Grumpy Old Men, based on the hit film. Two of Berg’s new musicals have been selected for the prestigious New York Musical Theater Festival: The Man Who Would Be King, a musical realization of Rudyard Kipling’s novella, and Tim and Scrooge, the sequel to A Christmas Carol.
