SU Broadway Series Continues with "Dear Evan Hansen"
February 8, 2017
SU alumni can’t get enough of the Syracuse Broadway Series.
The Syracuse Broadway Series remains popular with our NYC alumni. Perhaps it’s because we had some of the hottest tickets in town this season. In December, nearly 70 alumni and friends went to see Les Liaisons Dangereuses at Booth Theatre. Last seen on Broadway in 1985, Les Liaisons Dangereuses follows La Marquise de Merteuil and Le Vicomte de Valmont as they participate in a cat-and-mouse game of seduction and revenge and it was as devilishly delicious as ever. Producer and SU alumna Arielle Tepper participated in a talkback with Ralph Zito, chair of the Department of Drama in SU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts.
Nearly 200 people came out to see Dear Evan Hansen in January. This show is generating a lot of buzz on Broadway and beyond this season, for good reason. The contemporary musical shows the promise and perils of the digital age, where what you say, a photo you post, or a blooper can go viral at any moment. Hansen presents an instantly relatable and emotional tale and leaves its audience with no easy answers and a lot to discuss, which is why our group was lucky to have producer and SU alumna Stacey Mindich on hand to lead a talkback with the cast after the show. Check out our photo album from the evening.
The Syracuse Broadway Series celebrates the University’s tradition of excellence in the theater. Whether as actors, musicians or working behind the scenes, SU alumni represent some of the most talented and successful members of the theater community in NYC and beyond. We are looking forward to our next theater outing and hope you join us.
