Broadway star John Cullum does streaming show
Goodspeed Musicals, Vineyard Theatre, and Irish Repertory Theatre, in association with Jeff Berger, will present "John Cullum: An Accidental Star," which will be available for streaming on demand through April 22.
Two live watch party events will take place at 7 p.m. April 8 and 2 p.m. April 17.
Conceived by Cullum and Berger, the 80-minute evening of stories and songs spanning Cullum’s illustrious career is told and sung by the 91-year-old two-time Tony Award winner. Directed and filmed earlier this year by Lonny Price and Matt Cowart, "An Accidental Star" features a book by David Thompson, music supervision by Georgia Stitt and music direction by Julie McBride.
"An Accidental Star" takes viewers behind the scenes with Cullum — from his 1960 debut in "Camelot" and Tony Award-winning performances in "Shenandoah" and "On the Twentieth Century," to his starring roles in "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever," "Urinetown" and "The Scottsboro Boys." He'll sing and tell stories of working with friends Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Goulet, Julie Andrews and more.
Cullum originated the role of Charlie Anderson in "Shenandoah" at the Goodspeed Opera House in 1974.
Ticket prices start at $25 (plus a $3.75 fee) per household with additional prices listed for those who wish to support the theaters beyond that.
