2’s Review: “Broadway Palm Thru The Decades”


Broadway Palm is kicking off its 30th anniversary with a history lesson and some good entertaining numbers.

“Broadway Palm Thru The Decades” is locally written and directed by the talented Victor Legarreta, a favorite at the dinner theater.

The story starts off by explaining how the theater came to be, and the show highlights three decades of popular performances that have kept the theater thriving.

Aside from the talent, vocals, and choreography by Amy McLeary, the theater is showing off its new state-of-the-art high performance, a commercial-grade video wall that measures a whopping 29 feet wide by 11 feet tall.

This will certainly help the theater bring each new performance to life, and they will rely less on painted scenery backdrops.

The wall consists of 125 different panels with an incredible resolution of 3024×1176.

The performance highlights memorable numbers from The Music Man, Singin’ in the Rain, Mamma Mia, and of course, Kinky Boots, which came to a grinding halt in 2020 when Covid hit. Actors Bryce Valle, Joshua James Crawford, and Ryan Cavanagh slay the scene performing “Raise You Up.”

Legarreta and his onstage son Caisson Dobson tell the story of how the theater has survived it all, and they do a wonderful job taking us on a trip down memory lane with a cast of talented actors performing some beloved numbers.

The talent in the show is amazing. Cantrella Canady uses her alto voice to belt out a number of big tunes from Sister Act, Annie, and South Pacific.

Newcomer Emily Song Tyler debuts her strong operatic vocal talents in memorable songs from Beauty and the Beast, The King and I, and My Fair Lady. She was a pleasure to watch and listen to.

Other standout talents in the show include Bryce Valle, Ellie Roddy, and Nik Olson, to name just a few.

This cast has a lot of energy, and they keep the show moving with a load of musical favorite performances.

Think of this show as a “sampler plate.” You get a little bit of everything packed into one mighty performance.

If you love musicals, then this is a show you’re going to want to nab some tickets for and plan on attending before it ends.

The musical melody runs through October 1.

You can call the box office at 239-278-4422 to reserve your seats and recall the shows that made the theater what it is today.
