Transcendence’s Broadway Under the Stars, now in its 5th season, is an award-winning series of
Broadway-inspired concerts featuring performers from New York and Los Angeles — artists who often
come to the Sonoma stage directly from recent Broadway appearances. More than a standard musical
revue, each show weaves well-known Broadway and popular songs into a spectacular themed
performance in the open-air 150-year-old Winery Ruins at Jack London State Historic Park.
Transcendence Theatre Company, named by USA Today’s 10BEST as the #2 “Outdoor Concert Venue
You Shouldn’t Miss” in the United States, received twelve 2015 Broadway World San Francisco awards
including Best Special Theater Event for the fourth consecutive year.
All events begin with picnicking amongst the vineyards of Jack London’s historic Beauty Ranch lawn—
including gourmet food truck fare, an assortment of local wineries pouring, and pre-show music—
casting a magical spell of communal festivity and summer celebration. Sunset heralds the start of the
show and the stage begins to sparkle as dusk descends and the Broadway stars sing and dance under
a starlit nighttime sky.
