Popular Broadway Sings concert returns

The folks at the Con­greg­a­tions of Ner Zedek are pre­par­ing to again wel­come the Broad­way Sings con­cert pro­duc­tion.

The con­cert is set for 1:30 p.m. on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2, at Ner Zedek, at 7520 Bustleton Ave. in Rhawn­hurst.

The per­formers, who are cur­rent and former stars of Broad­way hit shows, will be at the syn­agogue for the eighth time.

“It’s amaz­ing. They’re all Broad­way stars,” said Con­cert Com­mit­tee chair­man Jack Be­l­it­sky. “It’s like get­ting six Broad­way shows in one. They stay for en­core after en­core after en­core.”

Pub­li­city chair­man Don Ag­riss ex­plained that com­mit­tee mem­bers meet year round, and that tick­et sales be­gin in Janu­ary.

Com­mit­tee mem­bers see many of the same faces at the con­cert each Labor Day. Syn­agogue mem­bers are big sup­port­ers of the con­cert.

“People have en­joyed it for so many years,” he said.

At the same time, Be­l­it­sky and Ag­riss said every­one is wel­come. A year ago, the con­cert at­trac­ted a crowd of 550.

“Many people out­side the syn­agogue come to at­tend,” Ag­riss said.

A fli­er pro­mot­ing the con­cert de­clares that Broad­way Sings is “back by pop­u­lar de­mand.”

Firstrust Bank re­turns as the con­cert’s prime spon­sor. There will be a post-con­cert re­cep­tion for pat­rons and be­ne­fact­ors. Pro­ceeds be­ne­fit Ner Zedek.

The songs will come from pop­u­lar shows such as Cats, The Phantom of the Op­era, Mamma Mia!, Les Miser­ables and Wicked.

“It’s al­ways a great show,” Be­l­it­sky said. “It’s a great event for people. They love the mu­sic. It’s an af­ter­noon out. They can go out to din­ner, and it’s not dark when they get home.”

Tick­ets cost $36 apiece. The cost is $100 for two tick­ets and a post-con­cert re­cep­tion or $200 for four tick­ets and the re­cep­tion. Group pri­cing is avail­able. ••
