Broadway in Fresno: ‘Dreamgirls,’ ‘Shrek,’ Rain, David Sedaris and more

The schedule for the 2012-2013 Broadway in Fresno series is out, bringing some familiar titles to Saroyan Theatre. Among them: “Dreamgirls,” “Shrek: The Musical” and “West Side Story.”

As is customary with the series, there are few options that aren’t exactly theater in the traditional sense: “Lord of the Dance,” popular Beatles tribute band Rain and an evening with author/humorist David Sedaris of NPR fame. These are in addition to a July concert with Yanni that’s been on the books for months now.


So, Broadway in Fresno fans, how do you rate this lineup?

Woohoo! David Sedaris!

Stephen says:

Yeah, the things that excite me are the non-Broadway items – David Sedaris and Rain? Cool!

The theatrical options? Meh, I can get those at GCP. Both offer future broadway stars.
