Washington and Eisenstadt Present are bringing back Tampa’s favorite Broadway musical cabaret. On February 23rd and 24th The Studio at The Carrollwood Cultural Center will once again be taken over by ‘Broadway Bent: Heroes’, a celebration of Broadway musicals with a bend.

Audiences will enjoy the party like atmosphere and featured full service open bar, while some of the best musical theatre performers in the Tampa Bay area sing popular pieces from favorite Broadway musicals while mingling with the audience. This third installment of the Best of the Bay nominated production will celebrate the good guys and gals, giving the Heroes of Broadway their time in the spotlight.

“I have never been to a show where I felt like I and the other patrons were actually part of it. The immersive and playfulness of the show - with the singers going from stage to audience and mingling with the patrons - tussling hair, sitting at our tables, even chugging a beer - gave the feeling of being invited to an uber cool party that just happened to have live singing with voices that, several times, gave me goosebumps.”
-Deborah Bostock-Kelley, Broadway World Tampa

About Washington and Eisenstadt Present

“Infinite Scroll” February 24 – March 17, 2018

QUAID Gallery presents a solo show of new work by Anthony Record, “Infinite Scroll.” With paintings, cut outs, and large scale brush and ink drawings, Record builds upon the traditions of Paleolithic art, Chinese landscape painting, and the bleak infinite scroll of social media. Simultaneously engaging with some of the oldest and newest modes of representation, Record engages with the sublime dread of deep time and big data with darkly humorous, inscrutable, and multistable figures and landscapes.

Washington and Eisenstadt Present are bringing back Tampa’s favorite Broadway musical cabaret. On February 23rd and 24th The Studio at The Carrollwood Cultural Center will once again be taken over by ‘Broadway Bent: Heroes’, a celebration of Broadway musicals with a bend.

Audiences will enjoy the party like atmosphere and featured full service open bar, while some of the best musical theatre performers in the Tampa Bay area sing popular pieces from favorite Broadway musicals while mingling with the audience. This third installment of the Best of the Bay nominated production will celebrate the good guys and gals, giving the Heroes of Broadway their time in the spotlight.

“I have never been to a show where I felt like I and the other patrons were actually part of it. The immersive and playfulness of the show - with the singers going from stage to audience and mingling with the patrons - tussling hair, sitting at our tables, even chugging a beer - gave the feeling of being invited to an uber cool party that just happened to have live singing with voices that, several times, gave me goosebumps.”
-Deborah Bostock-Kelley, Broadway World Tampa
