These one-night-only concerts feature lauded performers and present a diverse array of musical styles. The series allows patrons and the Cape May community to experience world class, award-winning Broadway entertainers to Cape May, which in past years have included Lucie Arnaz, Jimmy Webb, Constantine Maroulis, and Adam Pascal to name a few.
“The Broadway Series is the natural extension of the premiere theater in South Jersey by bringing the most important musical artists and musical genres to our community. Celebrating life through music is part of Cape May Stage’s celebration of life through theater,” says Roy Steinberg, the Producing Artistic Director of Cape May Stage.
The 2022 Broadway Series kicks off on July 18 with “Dr. K’s Motown Revue.” This acclaimed collective of seasoned musicians and singers take viewers back in time with authentic, lively Motown classics. The Cape May Convention Hall will host this family-friendly event, with out-of-your-seat dancing encouraged for all ages.
On August 15, the Broadway Series continues with “RESPECT: A tribute to Aretha Franklin,” presented at the Cape May Convention Hall.

Finishing off this trio of Broadway performances is “An Evening with Melissa Errico: A Celebration of Love and Broadway” on September 19 at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse.
