Pom­padour

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - ON STAGE -

Aside from tal­ent, you know what many great guy singers have? Great hair. At least that’s the premise of the new revue “Pom­padour” at Stage Door The­atre in Mar­gate. With a quin­tet of five male vo­cal­ists, the show combs through five decades of mu­sic, from the Everly Broth­ers and Elvis Pres­ley to Jose Feli­ciano and the Temp­ta­tions. Michael Leeds, the show’s co-cre­ator, ex­plains the spark of the show: “A few years ago, I was brows­ing through CDs, and it was sur­pris­ing to see the num­ber of cur­rent male artists, like Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars, who sported the clas­sic pom­padour.” Kevin Black, the co-cre­ator and chore­og­ra­pher, adds: “First and fore­most, we needed a mul­ti­tal­ented cast. Af­ter over a year of au­di­tion­ing, we found our five guys, who not only have in­cred­i­ble voices, but are also very tal­ented dancers, tap­pers and play pi­ano, sax and acous­tic gui­tar.” When: Dec. 26-Jan. 31, 8 p.m. Fri­days and Satur­days; 2 p.m. mati­nees Wed­nes­days, Satur­days and Sun­days. Where: Stage Door The­atre, 8036 W. Sam­ple Road, Mar­gate Cost: $38-$42 Con­tact: 954-344-7765 or Stage­DoorThe­atre.com
