Burlington Does Broadway: A New Year’s Celebration

Ring in the New Year at the Flynn as Lyric Theatre Company and the Vermont Symphony Orchestra join for a night dedicated to the bright lights of Broadway. In this first-ever joint performance, the VSO sets the stage for Lyric to sing out and dance to Broadway’s greatest show tunes. Enjoy selections from Fiddler on the Roof, South Pacific, Peter Pan, The Music Man, Kiss Me Kate, and more. From Golden Age standards to contemporary classics, the Flynn fills the MainStage with big city panache on a night to remember.
