Theatre Travels and Olivia Ruggiero Productions are proud to present, Broadway Diva

​Opera and Musical Theatre singer, Olivia Ruggiero, stars in Broadway Diva - a cabaret featuring Broadway Belts, West End Wonders, Opera Classics, and beloved show tunes from productions such as Les Miserables, Anastasia, Cabaret, smash, Jesus Christ Superstar and more.

The show is a celebration of ‘earworms,’ those songs that stay with you long after you have heard them on stage.

​A sell out at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2023, the show has been touted as "Utterly Entrancing" -John Doherty, That Guy in the Foyer and "a truly heartfelt production" - GLAM ADELAIDE

​Olivia takes to the stage after being named Broadway World Sydney's Best Solo Performer of 2022.

"Ruggiero might just be one of Australia’s true (and very rare) hidden musical secrets. Broadway, if you are reading this: COME AND GET HER ALREADY!" - MATTHEW HOCTER REVIEWS

​Co-Created and Directed by celebrated director Carly Fisher, Broadway Diva is a show for Musical Lovers and Broadway Novices alike.
