“Broadway Goes Pop,” a tribute to the pop hits that have made their mark on Broadway, launches the second half of the 2021/2022 season at Good Theater in Portland. The production opens Saturday, Jan. 29, and plays through Tuesday, Feb. 8.

“Broadway Goes Pop” stars Good Theater favorites Colleen Clark and John Lanham and also features Good Theater newcomers John Furey and Jackie Grigg.

From Burt Bachrach (“Promises Promises”) to Elton John (“Aida,” “The Lion King”) pop music has become part of the Broadway landscape. Colleen Clark, John Lanham and some very special guests will take you on a journey through pop music’s greatest Broadway moments. The show features music from pop legends such as Cher, Sting, The Who, Billy Joel, and more. Conceived, written, and directed by Good Theater Artistic and Executive Director Brian P. Allen and music directed by Victoria Stubbs, this fun, upbeat cabaret show is the perfect mood elevator for a Maine winter.

John Lanham has previously been seen on the Good Theater stage as Carlo in “A Comedy of Tenors,” as Man #1 in “Lucky Stiff,” and in numerous “Broadway at Good Theater” performances. He will take the stage again later this season as Johnny Blood in the Maine premiere of “Desperate Measures.” Joining Lanham both in “Broadway Goes Pop” and “Desperate Meassures” is Colleen Clark, who has previously wowed audiences in “Broadway at Good Theater.” These two stellar voices are not to be missed in either production. Rounding out the cast are John Furey and Jackie Grigg, who are making their Good Theater debuts.

“Broadway Goes Pop” plays Saturdays at 12:30 p.m.; Sundays at 5 p.m.; and Tuesdays at 7 p.m. (all tickets are $24). The Good Theater is located in the St. Lawrence Arts Center at 76 Congress St., Portland. For tickets and information, please call the Box Office at (207) 835-0895 or visit www.goodtheater.com.
