About the show

SHOWSTOPPER: A Love Letter to Broadway is a one-woman, one hour, 12 costume Broadway extravaganza. Everyone remembers the moment that stopped the show, the 11 o’clock number that left us laughing, crying, or thinking. In SHOWSTOPPER: A Love Letter to Broadway we jump from show to show experiencing the high-energy classics through dance, song and story.
