Houston, TX – The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts welcomes musical theater phenomenon The Barricade Boys West End Party! to its new Beyond Broadway series with performances June 6-7 at the Hobby Center Zilkha Hall.

The Beyond Broadway series offers Houston audiences a fresh new way to experience top tier musical theater talent with intimate and engaging showcase performances from Broadway’s biggest stars beginning with Houstonian and Hamilton alumna Renée Elise Goldsberry on January 20, 2024.
“We are excited to build on an already impressive Beyond Broadway series to share with audiences the ‘UK’s most exciting musical theater group,” said Mark Folkes, Hobby Center President and CEO. “I had the opportunity to see The Barricade Boys in concert last year at New York’s iconic 54 Below. It was thrilling to hear these remarkably talented and charming artists perform an incredible array of songs while telling stories about their lives on stage. This is the perfect group to round out our inaugural Beyond Broadway season, allowing audiences to relive the emotion of Les Misérables – a Houston audience favorite! – while taking them on a journey to discover a range of other music and Broadway lore.”
