Broadsway

Broadsway is the combination of three uber-talented “Broads”: Dora Mavor Moore Award-nominee Diane Leah, JUNO / ECMA nominee Heather Bambrick, and international touring Jazz artist Julie Michels. In Broadsway, they bring their respective musical talents together with the repertoire of the Theatre, the improvisational spirit of Jazz, and a heaping serving of humour to create a show that is immeasurably entertaining!

From the moment they first hit the stage together, Broadsway has been creating quite a buzz - as well as a steadily growing fan base - in every venue they’ve played, from Roy Thomson Hall and the Jazz Bistro in Toronto, to Birdland and the Metropolitan Room in New York. They’ve been featured in some of Canada’s top Jazz and Cabaret festivals, as well as various concert series and feature presentations. Their music brings together a repertoire that ranges from Jazz and Theatre, to Pop and even Classical ... all delivered with passion, power, poignance, and plenty of humour! Their show has evolved and expanded, developing in varying directions, including Broadsway With Symphony, which they debuted with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra.

Broadsway’s debut CD Old Friends received critical acclaim and their follow up The Most Wonderful Time … Maybe was hailed as “the musical version of the best office Christmas party ever!” (Mark Rheaume, CBC).

“Three talented Toronto ladies who know their way around jazz harmonies, sing their heads off, and actually entertain the hell out of their audiences!”
- Jim Caruso, Host Jim Caruso’s Cast Party (Birdland, New York)

A fun-filled top notch musical evening.”
- Louise Pitre, Tony-nominated actress

“The ladies of Broadsway - Heather Bambrick, Julie Michels, & the legendary Diane Leah - are a super fun treat!”
- Laila Biali, Juno-nominated Vocalist (Sting, Paula Cole, Suzanne Vega)
