Broadway-in-the-Round brings together incredible talent both onstage and behind the scenes. It's the very best Broadway actors, directors and choreographers from around the country,

CONVERGING IN SACRAMENTO TO CREATE MAGIC. It's the contagious energy that's shared between actors and audience, and the communal experience created by the unique space. It's the intimacy created by the theatre's round stage, situated in the center of the audience. No seat is more than 20 yards from the stage and some scenes take place in the aisles just inches away. Broadway-in-the-Round is exhilarating musical theatre that you can't get anywhere but Music Circus.
