AT&T Performing Arts Center Broadway Series Presents
Summer: The Donna Summer Musical
April 26 – May 1, 2022
“Toot toot, hey, beep beep!”
Say those words, and you’ll immediately feel the beat, the spirit, the heat of the legendary Donna Summer. Her songs smashed every record. Her story shattered every barrier. Now, the queen arrives direct from Broadway.
After a twice extended, sold-out run at San Diego’s celebrated La Jolla Playhouse, SUMMER, The Donna Summer Musical, partied on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and is now strutting its way across North America on a National Tour.
She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva. But what the world didn’t know was how Donna Summer risked it all to break through every barrier, becoming the icon of an era and the inspiration for every music diva who followed. From Janet Jackson to Beyoncé, they all began with Donna.
Three actresses play the role of musical icon Donna Summer at different points in her life as “Diva Donna,” “Disco Donna” and “Duckling Donna,” while an inexhaustible ensemble of almost entirely women tear up the stage.
With a mega-watt dream list of musical hits — “Bad Girls,” “MacArthur Park,” “She Works Hard for the Money,” and “Last Dance”— SUMMER makes spring the hottest season of all.
Masks are requested, regardless of vaccination status.
