SunTrust is proud to sponsor what may be the most stellar season yet of SunTrust Broadway at DPAC! Whether this is your first SunTrust Broadway visit, or you’re a long-time season seat member, we’re delighted to welcome you to this exciting performance. SunTrust understands that that the arts are essential to the quality of life in the communities we serve. The performing arts in particular have the power to inspire, entertain, inform, thrill and unite us in a communal experience. We value our ongoing partnership with DPAC, which has proven to be an extraordinary artistic and economic force in our region, forever setting a high bar on quality that it meets and exceeds season after season. Helping people gain personal confidence about their finances is SunTrust’s passion and our purpose. Did you know that 75% of Americans report that their finances are their primary source of stress? SunTrust recognized that this is a silent epidemic that had to be addressed. In 2016, we launched the onUp Movement to offer everyone – SunTrust clients or otherwise – a way to take the first steps toward financial confidence. Escaping financial stress frees you to enjoy what is most important. We encourage you to join the Movement at onUp.com, where you’ll find tips, resources and challenge games to launch your journey to a life well-spent. But for tonight, sit back, and enjoy the show!

Christopher J. Bell SunTrust Region President, Triangle East

Welcome to SunTrust Broadway at DPAC!


3622 Lyckan Parkway, Suite 1001 Durham, NC 27707

WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR The traditional tenth anniversary gift is aluminum or tin, but that just does not seem fitting to celebrate a place that has delivered nothing but platinum for Durham for the last decade. As Durham’s mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Durham Performing Arts Center. My wife and I have been season ticket holders in DPAC’s Broadway series since it opened in 2008, and like DPAC’s more than 4 million guests, I continue to marvel at the caliber of performances showcased in our great city. Each year just gets better and better. For example, more than 480,000 visitors walked the red carpet last year to attend award-winning musicals, such as Les Misérables, The Color Purple, and sold-out concerts including David Byrne, Anita Baker and Jerry Seinfeld. In addition, this past fall, DPAC hosted 32 sold-out performances of the Tony® award-winning musical HAMILTON. That’s not all. While providing entertainment that families can enjoy together is a top priority for DPAC, finding ways to involve those who may not otherwise enjoy all that the arts have to offer has become a special passion for this theater. Last year, DPAC hosted its second “sensory-friendly” theatrical performance for children with autism. No doubt, the arts contribute to Durham’s sense of community.Your attendance enables DPAC to support other nonprofit arts groups, such as the Durham Arts Council and the Hayti Heritage Center. DPAC also cultivates the arts in education by arranging visits from touring cast members to local schools through Heart of the Arts, and not to mention donating hundreds of tickets each year to schools and local charities to use for auctions and fundraising. DPAC is constantly working to ensure that the arts touch many areas of Durham and, indeed, the entire Triangle community. A visit to DPAC is an open invitation to experience Durham—from great awardwinning restaurants to shopping and culture. It’s as easy as parking and either walking, biking or taking the bus to downtown eateries, or taking a short drive to nearby malls, museums or historical sites. If you stay the night, downtown hotels are here to welcome you with open arms. Milestone anniversaries are often the result of great partnerships, and DPAC is no different. Since the very beginning, the facility’s manager Nederlander/PFM has been responsible for bringing Tony®-winning Broadway shows to Durham, making DPAC a source of local, regional and national pride. If the first ten years indicate what’s to come, then buckle your seatbelts! Thank you for choosing DPAC and Durham. Now settle into your seats to enjoy your DPAC experience and an unforgettable show! Sincerely,

Mayor Steve Schewel

WELCOME FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER Welcome to DPAC! We’re glad you are here. The team here recently celebrated our tenth birthday. It was a milestone that had us looking back on hosting over 2,000 events, entertaining over 4 million guests - generating an economic impact for Durham of over $658 million. I was DPAC’s first employee. I started in January of 2008, about ten months before the center opened. When I first started, I had no office and worked out of a Starbucks in Downtown Durham that had a good Wi-Fi connection. One of my first tasks as General Manager was to recruit the original management team. We started with ten full-time staff members; since then, the staff has doubled in size as the number of annual events has tripled from our first season. Special recognition goes to Rachel Traversari and Josh Anderson, who were part of the original staff and have grown into roles as senior leaders within our organization. The success that DPAC has does not just happen. It takes hundreds of full-time, parttime and volunteer staff members, and many more at The Nederlander Organization, Professional Facilities Management and the City of Durham’s elected officials and staff with whom we work closely in the operation of DPAC. I extend my thanks to everyone that has played a part in DPAC being ranked among the top five theaters in the country every year. This past October we received what may be our greatest recognition, being named as Theater of the Year by IEBA (International Entertainment Buyers Association), a trade association made of venue managers, agents, and event promoters. This recognition is a source of pride for Durham and the region: there were a total of seven theaters nominated with the six other nominees in the much larger markets of Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. We’re always proud to share the accolades, awards and top rankings we achieve at DPAC, because we also want to thank you, our loyal guests, who have made this possible. Thank you for choosing to join us at this performance, and thank you for a fantastic first ten years. Sincerely,

Bob Klaus General Manager

MICHAEL STEWART (Book) was still relatively early in his theatrical career when he had his first smash hit in 1960 with Bye Bye Birdie, for which he won the Tony Award for Best Book. His subsequent Broadway shows include Carnival! (Drama Critics Circle Award); Hello, Dolly! (Tony Award, Drama Critics Circle Award); George M! (with Francine and John Pascal); Mack & Mabel (Tony nomination); The Grand Tour; 42nd Street (with Mark Bramble; Tony Award); and Harrigan and Hart (Tony nomination). He is also the lyricist of Barnum (music by Cy Coleman, Tony nomination) and I Love My Wife (Tony nomination). Mr. Stewart died in 1987. JERRY HERMAN (Music & Lyrics) remains one of the most iconic and beloved composers in the American theater. His legendary scores have spawned such standards as “I Am What I Am,” “The Best of Times,” “Mame,” “If He Walked into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas” and “Hello, Dolly!” His first Broadway musical, Milk and Honey (1961), ran for 543 performances. He made history in 1964 with Hello, Dolly! (10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a Broadway record held for 37 years), which was followed by yet another smash, Mame, in 1966. With Dolly! and Mame still running, Herman had the rare distinction of having three Broadway shows playing simultaneously when Dear World opened in 1969. In 1974, Mack & Mabel opened (and remains one of his best-loved scores) and was followed by 1979’s The Grand Tour. Herman’s most recent Broadway show, La Cage aux Folles, became another phenomenon, winning the Tony Award in 1984 for Best Musical. It was successfully revived in 2004 and 2010, winning the Tony for Best Revival each time. Two of Herman’s most cherished songs from Hello, Dolly! are the emotional highlights of the DisneyPixar classic Wall-E, cementing Herman’s place in American popular culture. His countless awards and honors include multiple Tony Awards, Grammy Awards, Olivier Awards, Drama Desk Awards, the Johnny Mercer Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award, the Frederick Loewe Award, membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Theater Hall of Fame and most recently, The Kennedy Center Honor.

Hamilton Choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler

Gives CATS A New Spring In Its Step “So many millions of people have a love affair with this show; I feel it is important to give them what they remember,” says Andy Blankenbuehler, who is choreographing the first Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS, the musical phenomenon that has captivated audiences since the 1980s. Blankenbuehler, who is best known for creating the dazzling kinetic moves in this decade’s musical phenomenon Hamilton, will base his work on the original choreography by Gillian Lynne. The new production of CATS also retains director Trevor Nunn, and set and costume designer John Napier — both of whom won 1983 Tony® Awards for the original production. “I don’t want to break the DNA of the show, but I want to move it a little more quickly,

deepen the storytelling, and strengthen the characterizations, so that when audiences see the show, it will be something they remember, but which happens in a way that is not familiar.” …Not long after Hamilton began its charmed life at the Public Theater at the beginning of 2015, Lloyd Webber asked Blankenbuehler if he would like to choreograph the Broadway revival of CATS. A new, slightly tweaked production had just opened in London the previous fall, but the creators were looking for a fresh take for Broadway. …In the 30-plus years since CATS opened, not only have audiences changed — we have shorter attention spans, are open to more stimulation, and frequently multitask — but the tools available to a choreographer are also more

varied. Blankenbuehler notes that today’s young performers’ abilities have been broadened by dance competition TV shows like So You Think You Can Dance. “You have these dancers coming to us with tremendous skills that range from ballet to tap to [street-dance styles like] krumping and popping or [hip-hop’s] locking, to modern and contemporary dance.” “The creative team talked to me a lot about the musical not just being about cats, but about finding the common ground where the audience can see themselves in the cats,” Blankenbuehler continues. “So for me as a choreographer, it’s a great opportunity to further deepen the individual cats within the tribe. As Andrew’s musical styles change, I have them move in different ways. I am also making choreographic adjustments for Rum Tum Tugger, Mistoffelees, for the Macavity fight, and for our younger cats. One thing that’s going to be substantially different is the connective tissue between moments. The archetypal characters are the same but I want to make sure, as I have always done, that in the transitions, the

storytelling continues in a very dynamic way.” The design elements of the CATS revival are pretty much the same as the original and, apart from a few cuts and some reshuffling of scenes, the show remains structurally the same. But the production has a new lighting designer in Natasha Katz. “The lighting is the doorway that the audience walks through, so with her changes and my staging changes, I think the show will unfold in a different way,” says Blankenbuehler. “The big gamble is to take something that feels familiar and make it unfold in a deeper and more colorful way.”

DAVID MERRICK (Original Producer) claimed to be born on November 4, 1954, the night his first Broadway musical Fanny opened. His second production, in 1955, was Thornton Wilder’s comedy The Matchmaker. He immediately determined it would make a brilliant musical—which, in 1964, turned out to be Hello, Dolly!. At a time when few producers managed more than one production a year, he stunned Broadway in 1957 with three hits in one month (including John Osborne’s ground breaking Look Back in Anger). The following November, he opened three shows in a single week. At the height of his activity, he had eight productions running simultaneously on Broadway. His musicals included Jamaica with Lena Horne; Destry Rides Again with Andy Griffith and Dolores Gray; Gypsy with Ethel Merman; Take Me Along with Jackie Gleason; Irma La Douce; Do Re Mi with Phil Silvers and Nancy Walker; Carnival! with Anna Maria Alberghetti and Jerry Orbach; I Can Get It for You Wholesale with Elliott Gould and Barbra Streisand; Stop the World—I Want to Get Off and The Roar of the Greasepaint—The Smell of the Crowd with Anthony Newley; Oliver!; 110 in the Shade; I Do! I Do! with Mary Martin and Robert Preston; The Happy Time with Robert Goulet; Promises, Promises with Orbach; Sugar with Robert Morse and Tony Roberts; Mack & Mabel with Preston and Bernadette Peters; and the legendary 42nd Street with Orbach and Tammy Grimes. Notable plays included The Entertainer with Laurence Olivier; The World of Suzie Wong; A Taste of Honey with Angela Lansbury; Becket with Olivier and Anthony Quinn; Sunday in New York with Robert Redford; Luther with Albert Finney; Arturo Ui with Christopher Plummer; One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with Kirk Douglas; Inadmissible Evidence with Nicol Williamson; Cactus Flower with Lauren Bacall and Barry Nelson; Peter Weiss’ Marat/Sade; Brian Friel’s Philadelphia, Here I Come!; Woody Allen’s Don’t Drink the Water and Play It Again, Sam; Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and Travesties; Forty Carats with Julie Harris; Child’s Play; and Peter Brook’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, to name a few.

FOUNDER’S SPOTLIGHT “He Loves to Fly and See Shows”

Durham native Doug Clifton is proud of bringing Delta Air Lines ad DPAC together Doug Clifton, who graduated from Southern High School in 1975, has kept a soft spot for his hometown, even as his work with Delta Air Lines has taken him all over the world. Of course, he does remember the bad old days in Durham, the period of economic and cultural decline that began in the ‘70s and lasted into the ‘90s. “I saw Durham go downhill. Windows were boarded up. There was a hodgepodge of failed businesses. Then you saw the renaissance of the food scene, which was the beginning of everything. Now downtown is a great place to take your family, go to a show, go to a Bulls game, then maybe afterwards head to a restaurant or pub. For a Durham native, it’s just a total 180-degree turn in a matter of years.” That’s just one reason Clifton was pleased last year to enter into a corporate partnership with DPAC, becoming the official airline of the theater. Another reason? He sees Delta and DPAC as sympatico on several levels. “Delta wants to support the arts, and the demographic who attends the theater are the demographic that fly Delta Air Lines. We are the largest carrier at RDU, with 81 flights daily to 26 unique non-stop destinations, including Paris.


“Customer service is everything for Delta Air Lines ... and the customer service [DPAC General Manager] Bob [Klaus] and his staff provide to this community is just exquisite.” Clifton is what you might call a company man, having spent 42 years with Delta Air Lines. It started in 1977 as a summer job cleaning airplanes while attending college at East Carolina University and, later, UNC-Chapel Hill. That morphed into a full-time position, and Clifton did a bit of everything, including loading bags and fueling airplanes, before moving into global sales in 1992. He’s been there ever since, and now is General Manager of Global Sales, overseeing teams in Raleigh-Durham, Nashville and overseas. Of course, he does take in live theater in other large cities. So, how does his hometown theater stack up? “Theaters in London and New York, they’re old, they’re quaint, it’s a different vibe to me. And DPAC’s a more modern theater. You can’t even really compare. I think both of them have huge value.” Clifton and his wife, Susan, moved back to Durham a few years ago after living in Dallas. His sons, Drew, 27, and Sean, 33, also live in the area with their spouses. All of them are regular DPAC guests. “Anybody who comes to visit our town,” Clifton says, “I tell them about the renaissance in downtown, and DPAC and the Durham Bulls are what made the renaissance happen.”

AVOID SCALPERS Don’t purchase tickets from Internet scalpers! At DPAC, we’re tired of seeing unauthorized ticket brokers take advantage of DPAC ticket buyers. Don’t be fooled by online websites who mimic DPAC’s name or website and offer tickets they might not even have.You will always pay more, will rarely get the seats they advertise, and you may even receive counterfeit tickets.

Go directly to DPACnc.com or to Ticketmaster.com; type it in yourself, rather than using an online search. These are the only OFFICIAL ONLINE TICKETING PROVIDERS for events at DPAC.

If you do use a search engine, look for the official DPAC website www.DPACnc.com. Only our authentic venue site is allowed to be labeled as “official.”

“Speculative Listing” is when unofficial sellers list tickets for sale even though they do not actually have those tickets. They are betting they can trick you into buying tickets, often in seat locations you may not really want and at a price much higher than what others are paying for the same seats. For more information about speculative ticketing, visit this warning from Ticketmaster: https://insider.ticketmaster.com/spec-ticketing/

Avoid unsecured purchases from fraudulent and misleading online ticket brokers. Don’t overpay for your tickets. For the best prices and best selection, always go directly to DPACnc.com or Ticketmaster.com and BUY DIRECT!

EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH Making a Difference in Our Community

Since 2008, DPAC’s community outreach program Heart of the Arts has been making connections between the shows DPAC presents on our stage, local students and non-profit organizations. Through Heart of the Arts, DPAC coordinates master classes led by touring Broadway cast and crew members for Durham students interested in the performing arts. Students and their teachers have told us that DPAC’s educational outreach events are among their school year’s highlights.The chance to interact with Broadway theater professionals is inspiring; they provide real-world insights and offer students a once-in-a-lifetime experience. New this year, DPAC’s Heart of the Arts team has started the Performing Arts Ambassador program. The diversity of what is offered at DPAC will be revealed to high school students passionate about the arts through this yearround program and they will acquire a behind-the-scenes look at the events at one of the top five theaters in America. These up-close experiences will not only help students realize the importance of the arts, but also allow them to share their insights and experiences with teens throughout the region via social media.

STARS VOLUTEER PROGRAM Become a Volunteer at DPAC DPAC invites you to become a member of the DPAC Stars, part of Durham Convention and Visitors Bureau (DCVB) Wayfinder volunteer program. As a volunteer at DPAC, you have the privilege of being our guests’ first impression of DPAC and, for many, their first impression of the City of Durham.

DPAC has hosted over 2,000 performances and had over four million guests through our doors. It’s undeniable that DPAC would not be where it is today without the contributions of the members of this important volunteer program. DPAC is famous for our customer service, and we invite you to serve as an ambassador for Durham in welcoming the 500,000 guests that will visit DPAC this season.


Volunteers play many important roles at DPAC including:

• Provide information and directions to guests as they arrive at the three main parking areas used for DPAC events. • Greet and assist guests with directions just inside the entrances to DPAC. • Pass out programs and information on upcoming events.


• Convenient online scheduling of shifts. • Camaraderie with others in sharing time and service to the community. • Option to stay and watch the show after completion of volunteer shift. JOIN TODAY! DPAC Stars are such an important part of our legendary “DPAC Experience.” We hope you will consider this chance to serve the greater Durham community and the world-class events that are coming to DPAC. Visit www.DPACnc.com/community/volunteer to learn more about our DPAC Stars program and how to get involved!

DPAC is proud to present the ninth annual Triangle Rising Stars (TRS) competition sponsored by Marchael Bayne. Triangle Rising Stars is the regional qualifying event for The National High School Musical Theatre Awards™ (NHSMTA). NHSMTA is a national competition that celebrates outstanding student performances in high school musical productions across the United States.Triangle Rising Stars brings together high school musical theater students from Durham, the Triangle and the surrounding region to perform and compete for a chance to represent DPAC in the national finals in New York City each summer. A team of judges from DPAC, Duke University, ABC 11, Carolina Theatre and other arts and performance professionals attend area high school musical productions throughout the school year. Twenty finalists are then selected to rehearse and compete with the best of their peers, culminating in a live performance at the Triangle Rising Stars Showcase and Awards show at DPAC each May. This year, six awards will be presented during the live ceremony: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Dancer, Best Ensemble, Triangle Shining Star (congeniality award), and The Marchael Bayne Award for Best Musical. The students awarded Best Actress and Best Actor each receive $2,000 academic scholarships and are invited on an all-expenses-paid trip to the NHSMTA program in New York City in June at Nederlander’s Minskoff Theatre, home for Disney’s The Lion King.


About NHSMTA – The National High School Musical Theatre Awards™ (NHSMTA) was established in 2009 to elevate the importance of theatre arts education in schools and reward excellence in student performance. The program impacts over 50,000 students annually who participate in high school musical theatre competitions sponsored by thirty professional theatres throughout the US. Also known as The Jimmy® Awards, named for Broadway impresario James M. Nederlander, this yearround program is administered by The Broadway League Foundation Inc.

GUEST ETIQUETTE At DPAC, we’re committed to Guest Courtesy. Please remember to be a good neighbor to those seated around you. IT CAN WAIT.

Please save texting until AFTER the show. The light from phones is distracting to others throughout the theater. Please keep them turned off.


Once the show starts, please let the stage be the center of attention. We ask that you turn off all phones and limit conversation. If children are attending this performance with you, please exit the theater immediately if they become restless or talkative.


Photography and video recording is prohibited. All electronic devices (cell phones, smart phones, tablets, digital cameras) must be turned off before the start of the show. Cameras with detachable lenses are never allowed into the building, and for some shows no cameras of any kind are allowed, including small point-and-shoot cameras.


Please time your exit and re-entry to the seating area to occur only at intermission or breaks between songs. This is a courtesy to other guests around you who will appreciate you keeping these disruptions to a minimum.

IT’S SUPERSTAR ENTERTAINMENT, NOT A FOOD FEST Small snacks and drinks are welcome in the seating area, but as a courtesy to those around you, eat and drink as quietly as possible. Please know that odors and noisy wrappers can disturb others. We also ask that you finish sandwiches or other large food items before entering the seating area.


Children must be able to sit quietly in their own seat without disturbing other guests. As a courtesy, DPAC recommends one parent or chaperone for every one child in attendance.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your DPAC experience so please know we are here to help. If you have a question or need assistance of any kind, please just ask the nearest usher, security guard, or DPAC staff member. We believe in great entertainment experiences, and we want to be our guests’ favorite place for live events.

DISCOVER BROADWAY Can’t use one or more of your season tickets for the next show? Donate your tickets and give an area youth or senior the chance to experience their first Broadway show ever! DPAC’s Discover Broadway and Golden Ticket programs offer SunTrust Broadway members a way to donate their tickets so their valuable seats do not go to waste. During the 2017 / 2018 season, over 150 tickets were donated to these programs and distributed to Durham Public Schools, Partners for Youth Opportunity and Durham seniors living in public housing. For many, these seats provided opportunities for youth and seniors to experience their first Broadway show ever. For the 2018 / 2019 season, DPAC’s Discover Broadway program will be partnering with Durham Public Schools to reach students in the performing arts who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend our events. DPAC’s Golden Ticket benefits seniors living at the J.J. Henderson Housing Center in Durham. By generously donating tickets you cannot use, Durham youth and seniors get the chance to experience the magic and music of live Broadway shows. With your generosity, these donated tickets provide the opportunity of a lifetime.

It’s easy to help: • If you know in advance that you cannot attend a show, or even if one member of your party will not be joining you, simply contact DPAC at :


• You will receive an acknowledgment from DPAC that your unused ticket information is being processed. • You, then, discard your original tickets and DPAC will handle all other details – we will reprint the tickets and arrange to have them distributed to deserving Durham students and seniors. * Please note: ticket donations must be made at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled performance date.
