Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre: Bullets Over Broadway opens Thursday

| May 19, 2018

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre (ASGT) opens its 2018 season next Thursday, May 24, 2018 with “Bullets Over Broadway: The Musical,” written by Woody Allen. The show runs Thursday to Sundays at 8:30 pm from May 24-June 16, with a Wednesday performance on June 13. Tickets are $25 and are available online.

Bullets over Broadway: The Musical is a love letter to the Golden Age of Broadway. Loaded with big laughs, colorful characters, and the songs that made the 1920s soar, this wildly entertaining show is bringing musical comedy back with a bang. Based on the screenplay of the acclaimed 1994 film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, this six-time Tony-nominated musical features existing hits from the ’20s, including “Let’s Misbehave,” “‘Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do” and “There’s a New Day Comin’!”
