AT&T Performing Arts Center and Nic Doodson Presents GOBSMACKED
(DALLAS, AUGUST 3, 2017) The non-profit AT&T Performing Arts Center and Nic Doodson, producer and creator of GOBSMACKED!, are delighted to declare that the sensational, next-generation a cappella show, GOBSMACKED!, will play the Majestic Theatre for a limited engagement Tuesday, November 21 and Wednesday, November 22, 2017. GOBSMACKED! is part of the 2017/2018 Off Broadway on Flora season.
Direct from sell-out seasons in London, Hong Kong, and Edinburgh comes to a mind-blowing vocal show that redefines the human part. Featuring the reigning world-champion beatboxer, Ball-Zee, and an international cast of world-class vocalists, GOBSMACKED! Wives’ stories through all frames of a cappella from traditional street corner harmonies to cutting-edge, multi-track live looping.
Critics in the UK call GOBSMACKED! “Entertainment, not to be missed,” (Broadway Baby) and “better than Glee…mesmerizing,” (EdFest Magazine). Audiences will experience heart-stopping singing and jaw-dropping beatboxing in this latest breakout show that everyone is talking about –it’s comical, joyful and uplifts the spirits of all ages!
Though one of the oldest forms of music, a cappella singing has just recently broken through to mainstream popularity. Movies such as Pitch Perfect and Glee, and groups like Pentatonix, Straight No Chaser and Naturally 7 have catapulted a cappella from street corners to stadiums.
The producers of GOBSMACKED! Have created a show for the whole family that carries the audience on a journey through music. GOBSMACKED! Not only showcases modern a cappella at its best, but also tells an urban tale of passion, loss, and redemption.
They have worked with creative people such as Daft Punk, Britney Spears, Jose Carreras, Buena Vista Social Club and Soweto Gospel Choir and have produced and directed shows in venues such as the O2 Arena in London and The Sydney Opera House.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
