BREAKTHROUGH WORKSHOP THEATRE in “THE BREAKTHROUGH REVUE 2019“
Tuesday, July 30, 2019 8pm
THE BREAKTHROUGH REVUE 2019 is a one-night-only performance that shines a spotlight on and celebrates artists of various ages, backgrounds and experience levels as they bravely pursue personal and artistic breakthroughs on the stage. Featuring musical theatre artists singing songs they love to sing, songs brand new in their repertoire, songs from their dream roles, or songs that are completely miscast, this evening will conclude Breakthrough Workshop Theatre’s Season 7 with an evening that also includes exciting announcements of what’s coming next in 2020’s Season 8, and an annual awards presentation to highlight the artists that make BWT possible.
