REVIEW: Jersey Boys at Dr. Phillips Center


In 1960, a little-known band called The Four Lovers evolved into The Four Seasons - rocketing four men from New Jersey into a stardom so solid that it would cross generations. During a time that produced more than a few endearing quartets, there was something remarkable that distinguished this foursome from the Beach Boys and Beatles of the day - and, for many years, the majority of their fans didn't even realize that it was more than their musical skills that broke the mold... it was their story.

Jersey Boys officially premiered in 2005 at August Wilson Theatre in New York, and on October 30, the Tony and Grammy Award-winning "Best Musical" kicked-off the 2018/2019 Orlando Broadway Series at Dr. Phillips Center.

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts introduces THE NEWEST CAST MEMBERS OF BROADWAY HIT “WAITRESS”

— Local Lulu’s celebrate with a tour of the theater and a meeting with former Waitress leading man Jason Mraz 

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 14, 2018) —  Dr. Phillips Center celebrates Pi Day by revealing the two little girls chosen for their big break in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical WAITRESS at Dr. Phillips Center.  Delainey Silvestro, age 5, and Ella Helton, also age 5, will make their professional debut on the Walt Disney Theater stage next week. The girls visited the arts center for a tour of the theater and dressing rooms. Singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, recent star of the Broadway production of WAITRESS, was in town to perform his Solo Acoustic tour at Dr. Phillips Center and took a moment from his sound check to meet the pint-sized pixies. Mraz played Dr. Pomatter in a limited engagement in the musical at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre through February 11, 2018.

Auditions for the role of Lulu were held February 28 at the arts center by WAITRESS creative team members and Dr. Phillips Center Director of Education Dana Brazil. Delainey and Ella were among over 30 aspiring actresses under age 5 (and three months) interviewed to play a “sweet, carefree” young girl in the finale scene of the Tony-nominated show. Both girls are active in dance classes. Delainey also takes piano and showed an interest in acting after her older brother and sister got involved in the theater. Pre-K student Ella takes private voice and acting, having appeared in commercials and toy catalogues. She decided to audition for the Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando tour of WAITRESS when she saw the video of the original Lulu and, according to her mother, “got very excited.”  The girls will split the performance dates during the Orlando engagement. 

WAITRESS debuts in the Walt Disney Theater as part of the 16/17 Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando series on Tuesday, March 20 and runs through Sunday, March 25, 2018.  Delainey and Ella will join the touring Broadway cast of WAITRESS:

‘DAVID BLAINE LIVE’ RETURNS TO NORTH AMERICAN AUDIENCES FOR SPRING AND SUMMER TOUR

Playing Dr. Phillips Center on Monday, June 11, 2018

— Tickets go on sale Friday, March 2, 2018 —

ORLANDO, Fla. (February 26, 2018) — Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and Live Nation announced today that death-defying magician, David Blaine, is taking his mind-blowing show ‘David Blaine Live’ on the road this spring and summer with a new round of 36 North American tour dates. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off May 6, 2018 in San Diego, CA and make stops in U.S. cities including Orlando at the Walt Disney Theater on June 11, 2018.


About the Tour
Blaine is known for his exceptional fusion of magic and stunt work, unlike any other modern-day performer. The one-man show will be an interactive experience to shock and awe audiences.
Described by Howard Stern as the greatest magician that ever lived, David Blaine single-handedly redefined magic after producing and directing his original television special Street Magic when he was just twenty-three. Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller called “the best TV magic special ever done.” The New York Times noted that Blaine has “taken a craft that’s been around for hundreds of years and done something unique and fresh with it,” whilst The New Yorker claimed “he saved magic.”

ELIZABETH VARGAS ANNOUNCED AS MODERATOR FOR JOE BIDEN AMERICAN PROMISE TOUR

Award-winning anchor to host discussion at Dr. Phillips Center
about Biden’s Memoir, New York Times Best Seller
“Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose”.


January 15, 2018 – Orlando, FL –  Elizabeth Vargas, Co-Anchor of ABC News’ “20/20” will moderate former Vice President Joe Biden’s stop in Orlando at Dr. Phillips Center’s Walt Disney Theater on his American Promise Tour.

As an award-winning ABC News anchor, Elizabeth Vargas has traveled the world covering breaking news stories, reporting in-depth investigations, and conducting newsmaker interviews. She is currently the co-anchor of “20/20” with David Muir. Vargas is also the author of “Between Breaths: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction” released in 2016.

“Over the last month I’ve traveled around the country to share the story of my son Beau. I have been incredibly touched by countless stories of resilience and hope that so many people have shared with me — stories of enormous loss, and yet, in defiance of that loss, they get up every morning and summon the strength to live a life of purpose. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue this tour and hear from so many more people,” says Vice President Biden.
