On Monday, May 22, Broadway is coming to LA! “BROADWAY@The presents: UNPlugged”: a stripped-down, acoustic evening at The Bourbon Room.
The show will feature music from top-tier Broadway artists performing songs from shows like: Hadestown, Spring Awakening, Dear Evan Hansen, Once, and many more!
BROADWAY@The is a monthly musical series that travels to only the hottest venues. This time, the series is coming to one of the most iconic spots in Hollywood: The Bourbon Room.
At a typical New York Broadway show, you’ll take your seats, watch a show, and then head out. But BROADWAY@The takes things a step further.
Their full theatrical experience comes in 3 acts: a happy hour, a mainstage show, and then a special after-hours performance. The after-hours performance, ENCORE!, is an open-mic piano bar show with host Frankie Zabilka with Jonny Perl on the keys!
Above all, BROADWAY@The provides a platform that engages the LA arts scene and generates a sense of community and celebration for artists and theatre establishments alike.
As Marisa Matthews, Producing Artistic Director and Host of BROADWAY@The puts it, her goal is to: “Bring people together for the purpose of shining their lights.”
One of our favorite ways they promote local talent is through their LA Theatre Spotlight, which highlights Los Angeles theatre organizations BROADWAY@The has worked with theatre giants such as the Geffen Playhouse and Pasadena Playhouse and will be announcing a new theatre collaboration soon.

They’ve also starred in hit shows like Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory, and performed in Broadway shows such as Kinky Boots, Shrek, Book of Mormon, and School of Rock!
“BROADWAY@The presents: UNPlugged” opens on May 22 at 7pm (6356 Hollywood Blvd). The show will be 90 minutes and tickets are available now. Get yours and celebrate some of the best actors, singers, and musicians LA has to offer!
