Broadway at the Capitol Returns Dec. 9 With Mannheim Steamroller
The Ohio Valley once again will get a taste of Broadway at Wheeling’s Capitol Theatre.
The Broadway at the Capitol series has been renewed, the Bordas & Bordas law firm announced Monday. The firm has renewed its title sponsorship of the series, which brings several Broadway shows to the Friendly City.
“Bordas & Bordas is honored to continue our sponsorship of Broadway at the Capitol for the next three seasons,” said managing partner Jamie Bordas. “We believe that live theater productions are an important part of having a vibrant community. It is a great feeling knowing that our law firm has a hand in bringing these experiences to Wheeling and beyond. Children and adults alike will enjoy the magic and art involved in each unique show.”
The 2022-23 season will begin Dec. 9 with Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, in which the neo-classical new age group’s music celebrates the holiday season. The next show comes Feb. 7, with the musical Anastasia. The show, based on the animated movie of the same name, tells the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia.
The all-female Irish musical ensemble Celtic Woman comes to Wheeling on Feb. 18, and then “The Simon & Garfunkel Story” — which tells the tale of the birth and growth of one of music’s iconic duos – comes to town March 1.
The season concludes April 26 with “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” The show, based on the popular movie starring Reese Witherspoon, was nominated for seven Tony Awards in its original Broadway run.
“We are thrilled to have Bordas & Bordas back as our title sponsor for the Broadway at the Capitol series,” said Daniel Hampel, managing director of The Roberts Group, which operates subscription series including Broadway at the Capitol. “Local partnerships are very important to us, and the renewed relationship means that Bordas & Bordas will remain our longest tenured title sponsor for the series, and an integral part of bringing the Broadway experience directly to Wheeling and the Capitol Theatre stage.”
