Broadsway Returning the Metropolitan Room
Following an impressive New York debut performance at the Metropolitan Room in November, three sold out shows at Toronto's Jazz Bistro, as well as a Christmas Eve appearance at the prestigious Roy Thomson Hall, Broadsway is thrilled to return to New York's Metropolitan Room on Sunday, January 18th at 4:00 pm.
Response from previous Manhattan performances has been wonderful:
" … three talented Toronto ladies who know their way around jazz harmonies,
sing their heads off, and actually entertain the hell out of their audiences!"
- Jim Caruso, Host / Producer, Jim Caruso's Cast Party at Birdland

"What a show and what a great time was had by all … the songs, the harmonies …
These ladies really, really rock! Brava!"
- Susan Winter, Cabaret Artist and Co-host / Co-producer, Open Mic @ The Met)

"Broadsway blew me away!"
- Sandra McFarland, Cabaret / Broadway blogger, This Broad's Way
Broadsway is the combination of three uber-talented "Broads": Dora Mavor Moore Award (Canada's version of the Tony) nominee Diane Leah, National Jazz Award-winner, Heather Bambrick, and international touring Jazz artist Julie Michels. In Broadsway, they bring their respective musical talents together with the repertoire of the Theatre, the improvisational spirit of Jazz, and a large dose of humor to create a show that is immeasurably entertaining.
Since their formation three years ago, they've been featured in festivals (Global Cabaret Festival; Toronto International Jazz Festival), theatres (Roy Thomson Hall; Canadian Opera Company's Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre), in concert series (JAZZ.FM91 Cabaret Series; various others in Southern Ontario), and at some of the finest live music venues in North America (Jazz Bistro - Toronto; The Metropolitan Room - New York).
Their debut CD Old Friends has received critical acclaim and they are currently working on their follow up recording. Broadsway also has plans for a Holiday release in 2015.
Their next Metropolitan Room show will closely follow showcases at APAP New York (Saturday, January 10th, 11:30 pm and Sunday, January 11th, 10:00 pm, NY Hilton Midtown, 4th Floor) as well as a feature at The Salon, hosted by Richard Skipper (Sunday, January 11th, 7:00 pm, Etcetera Etcetera, NY).
As always, the show will feature excellent music, brilliant arrangements, and Broadsway's signature dose of humor – all adding up to a highly entertaining, "get on your feet" kind of show that's not to be missed!!
BROADSWAY @ THE METROPOLITAN ROOM • 34 WEST 22ND STREET • SUNDAY, JANUARY 18 • 4:00 PM
