TAC brings ‘Boys’ to Troy

A goal of the Troy Arts Council is to bring arts entertainment to the local stage that patrons of the arts would normally have to travel to Birmingham or Atlanta to see. With the Broadway Boys, the TAC has reached its goal.
The Broadway Boys will be in concert Tuesday night at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University. Tickets will be available at the door. General admission tickets are $20. Student tickets are $5. Showtime will be 7 p.m.
Joel Williams, TAC president, said his arts organization could not have picked a better performance to close out its 2015-2015 calendar season.
“The Broadway Boys features a collection of the hottest male voices currently working on the New York stage,” Williams said. “We are excited to have a group of this caliber perform here in Troy. And very fortunate.”
The Broadway Boys bring newness to familiar Broadway tunes. They actually reinvent Broadway tunes, Williams said.
“The Broadway Boys add elements of pop, funk, gospel, jazz and folk music to show tunes and classic pop songs. They are amazing performers.”
The Broadway Boys performs in groups of six and with unparalleled vocals and explosive energy.
“The Broadway Boys were created 10 years ago for the purpose of playing one night only at a club in New York City,” Williams said. “They were a huge hit. They packed the bar and had to be brought back. And, they packed the bar again.”
The Boys realized they had growth potential and decided to develop the music into a “symphony of sound.”
“And, it’s this sound – these rarely heard harmonies – that you’ll enjoy when you hear The Broadway Boys in concert,” Williams said. “This will be a world-class performance and it will be right here in Troy, Alabama.
“The Troy Arts Council would like to thank all of those who make it possible for us to bring world class performances like The Broadway Boys to Troy. The City of Troy, the Pike County Commission, our patrons of the arts, the Alabama State Council on the Arts and ticket sales make it all possible. The Troy Arts Council greatly appreciates the support of our community.”
Williams said the TAC is working on next year’s calendar of events and it’s already lining up to be an entertainment masterpiece.
