Please welcome to the stage, LIVE and at the CIBC Theatre for the first time ever…BETTY BOOP! That sassy-sweet champion of empowerment, that spit-curled icon of joy, comes alive in BOOP!, the new Broadway-bound musical-comedy extravaganza.
Tony Award®–winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, La Cage aux Folles, Hairspray) brings the Queen of the Animated Screen to the theater with celebrated multiple Grammy® Award-winning composer David Foster (“I Have Nothing,” “After the Love Is Gone,” “The Prayer”), Tony Award-nominated lyricist Susan Birkenhead (Working, Jelly’s Last Jam), and Tony Award-winning bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone, The Prom).
For almost a century, Betty Boop has won hearts and inspired fans around the world with her trademark looks, voice, and style. Now, in BOOP!, Betty’s dream of an ordinary day off from the super-celebrity in her black-and-white world leads to an extraordinary adventure of color, music, and love in New York City—one that reminds her and the world, “You are capable of amazing things.” Boop-oop-a-doop!
