A few tickets remain for the Arts Society’s Saturday trip to New York for the 2 p.m. performance of Brooklyn the Musical at the Plymouth Theatre and admission to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum.

Payment for either venue should be made immediately to Allison Blatt, Williams Center operations director, Williams Center room 133. The musical costs $20 for Arts Society members and $30 for other students. The wax museum costs $5 for Arts Society members and $10 for other students.

The bus will leave the Williams Center for the Arts at 8:30 a.m. and depart from the Plymouth Theatre at 3:30 p.m. Admission to the museum will begin at 11 a.m.

The musical’s description: “From the heart of Brooklyn comes a band of soulful street-corner singers and storytellers. With a mix of pop and soul, they set their stage and tell a wondrous sidewalk fairy tale about a young girl searching for fame and the father she never knew. With just one clue to lead her, she lands in the city that bears her name: Brooklyn.”

“Imagine Hair or Godspell, throw in a helping of Motown and filter the whole thing through the pyrotechnics of ‘American Idol’,” states the New York Times.

Brooklyn will have a revered place in music-theatre history as the landmark musical of the first decade of the third millennium,” reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Madame Tussaud’s New York opened in 2000 and continues to expand, adding several themed attractions last year, including American Idol and the Osbournes Family Values.
