MARRIED TO BROADWAY
THE SHARPE FAMILY SINGERS
Ron Sharpe & Barbra Russell first met when they were playing the young romantic leads of Marius and Cosette in “Les Miserables”. The story they often tell is that after being married on stage hundreds of times, they decided to do it for real.
Yes, Broadway brought this wonderfully talented couple together. And they are still married to each other and to Broadway – and all of the wonderful songs from the big Broadway musicals of the past and present.
Ron is the only actor to have played both male leads of “Marius” and “Jean Valjean” in Les Miz on Broadway. His other Broadway credits include featured roles in the original productions of “The Scarlet Pimpernel”, “The Civil War”, Disney’s “King David”, and “Titanic”. As for Barbra, in addition to performing the lead role of Cosette, her theatrical credits include leads in “The Little Shop of Horrors” “Oklahoma”, “Side by Side by Sondheim”, “The Mystery of Edwin Drood”, and “The Fantastiks”.
In Married to Broadway, Ron and Barbra (together with three of their fabulous and equally talented adult children) share their love affair with the great music of the Great White Way, performing the big showstopping numbers that are audience favorites around the world -- from Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Evita, and West Side Story, to Carousel, Fiddler on the Roof, and – of course – Les Miz. Depending on your budget, the show can be performed with tracks, piano accompaniment, or a band.
This show is truly a Broadway love story. For the actors. The audience. Your box office. And your budget. Book it today, and let the Romance begin!
