The BoyfriendHave you ever wanted to go back in time to the 1920’s era of the French Riviera? Well  thanks to the fantastic cast of Best of Broadway you can. Tonight, in the Fuller Arts Center, the crew will be debuting The Boy Friend, and are more than excited to do so.

Best of Broadway is a club for students by students with the help of their advisor Ron Maggio.

“Being student-run is our biggest platform that we are proud of,” said co-director of the musical and senior Ryan Levine. “It’s directed and casted by students, and the cast is all students.”

This year the musical is set back in the time of the French Riviera, where many students who attend can expect to be teleported to a completely different time.

“From BoB this year you all can expect a lot of people [cast members] to have a really great time while they’re entertaining others taking the crowd back to the 1920’s era of the French Riviera,” said co-director and junior at SC Danielle Krzemien.

“I think the audience can expect laughs, and a flashback to the 1920’s,” added Levine. “You’ll have to see it to believe it.”

While the crew of Best of Broadway has worked hard to bring us so many great shows, it isn’t just the audience that benefits. Many of the cast members feel as though Best of Broadway is an outlet for their creativity, and a fun way to make friends.

“I think BoB gives SC students from all different backgrounds and attitudes the opportunity to participate and come together with the same idea, which is to have fun and perform for the audience,” said junior Christina Jones. “We might not all get along at first, but by the end of the day we accept each other.”

“Being part of BoB has been special to me for the past three years. It has allowed me to express myself in a non-traditional SC outlet,” Levine added. “I have gained so many meaningful relationships from being in the organization, and I hope that others have as well.”

The cast has been working extremely hard rehearsing and perfecting their roles to bring students the best possible show. The Boy Friend will run Thursday, May 2 through Saturday, May 4. All shows will begin at 7 p.m.
