Josh Groban Performance Highlights 25th Anniversary of the Broward Center
Published: Jan 25, 2016
American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer and 2016 Grammy Award nominee Josh Groban ignites an evening of pure imagination when he performs in the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theater on Saturday, February 27 at 8 p.m. as part of the Broward Performing Arts Foundation’s annual celebration to benefit the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The performance comes during the Broward Center’s 25th anniversary season.
Groban’s first four solo albums were certified multi-platinum and he has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. He is a 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for his seventh album, “Stages,” which is a unique musical event featuring a collection of some of the most memorable and well-loved songs from musical theater. In an interview with DailyHerald.com, Groban said about the album, “The beautiful thing about these songs, even when they are taken away from a musical theater show, is that they ring true in people's lives. They still have a message that is relevant. I wanted these songs to live and breathe on their own, to reach people the way that any great song reaches someone.”
Groban also will star in the Broadway premiere of “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812,” a musical adaptation of a 70-page section of Tolstoy’s masterwork War and Peace, scheduled to take the stage in September.
“We are thrilled to have Josh Groban as the headliner of our 25th anniversary celebration, topping of what is truly a spectacular milestone year for us," said Broward Center President & CEO Kelley Shanley. “It’s been an incredible 25 years thanks to our patrons, donors and this community. The Broward Center is bigger, better and more vibrant than ever and we hope the community joins with us in the celebration during our most exciting season yet.”
