Theater Review: “Broadway Moves to the Bronx”

April 26, 2015
bwayTodd Ellison’s “Broadway Moves to the Bronx” performed yesterday at Herbert H. Lehman College, was a big hit featuring Mr. Ellison’s piano playing and dialogue/great theater “nuggets” of information with the four talented performers.
Those performers were Christopher Sanders, Erin Mackey, Jose Llana and Klea Blackhurst.Mr. Sanders who joked about his continual performances in the classic show “South Pacific,” all over this country, opened the show with a great rendition of “Some Enchanted Evening” from that show.

Erin Mackey performed next and also dazzled the audience with a song (I’m in Love With a Wonderful Guy) from “South Pacific.”

Jose Llana, who performed in “The King and I” on Broadway at age 19, sang two songs, “You are Beautiful” and “Like a God” from the show “Flower Drum Song.”

Klea Blackhurst, who grew up in Salt Lake City and was called “Ethel Mormon,” did a great job singing Merman’s classic “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and also showed great knowledge of Broadway history in general and the great Ethel Merman in particular.
