Executive Summary

 

Broadway   Bound Productions & Film works is a Cincinnati based multi faceted national & international touring musical stage play production company. Originally formed as an entity specializing in developing high quality, superbly produced, extremely marketable productions for the cruise ship, theme park & Vegas-style casino supper theatre club markets. As the potential of major productions became evident the initiative shifted to also include specializing in highly marketable professionally produced productions to tour world wide… eventually destined to initiate a run on Broadway NYC.

 

Vincent Kee is the creator and Artistic Director of Broadway Bound Productions. Mr. Kee {an accomplished collegiate level educator} has over 15 years practical experience   functioning part-time as a union theatrical set designer & production assistant with various productions off & on Broadway N.Y.C.N.Y. with Hudson County Repertory Theatre Group.

A brief listing of some of the productions Mr. Kee has worked on include Miss Saigon, Man of La Moncha, Little Shop of Horrors, Death Of a Salesman, Dream Girls, The Wiz,

For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Committing Suicide when The Rainbow Wasn’t Enough, Pippin, Cats & Hello Dolly.

 

 Over two years ago {in January 2002} after seeing the 1943 movie, Stormy Weather, Mr. Kee decided to embark upon a career in writing & directing  a   original musical stage play that would bring back some of the greatest jazz & swing legends of all time. These legendary figures included Satchmo Louie Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, The Nicholas Bros & more. That musical stage play was titled “This Joint is Jumpin”. An Evening of Jazz & Swing Legends.

With the success of transforming successful performances of his 1st  play to life {in select performances in Charlotte North Carolina in March 2003 &  June in  Cincinnati} Mr. Kee developed Broadway Bound Productions & Film Works to be a vehicle to maintain 100% creative control writing, directing & producing every product he creates.

In less than three months he pro-actively developed in Cincinnati a phenomenal ensemble of administrators, musical directors, production assistants, talent & choreographers.

 

During this time approximately summer 2003 Nicholas Brown {a recent graduate of Cincinnati’s school of performing arts majoring in music} & Vincent Kee combined resources to develop all of the 30 original songs for the entirely original musical 100 Years Of Divas In American Music….At Sonny’s Place.  This arduous task took a year to complete.

 

 

In February 2004 a partnership was developed between The Greenwich Jazz Club (In Cincinnati) & Broadway Bound Productions to develop a series of highly stylized Vegas-Style Supper Club Productions. These efforts created a incredible group of look & perform a likes of some of the greatest musical legends of all time.!!!!!!!!!

 

During the periods of March 2004-April 2004 a series of successful Legendary Diva Showcases were headlined at “The Greenwich” to rave reviews.

 

 June 26th & June 27th the entirely original musical stage play……

“100 Years Of Divas In American Music At Sonny’s Place” was successfully premiered at the

Cincinnati Art Museum Theater in  Eden Park to 2 sold out audiences.

 

On July 23rd & 24th 2004  2 sold out performances were held at Cincinnati’s JAZZ IN THE PARK night club.  These performances were successfully showcased cabaret style.

 

On November 19th 2004 a special showcase of “100 Years Of Divas in American Music was premiered at “The Coconut Grove Night Club “ in Newport Kentucky”.

 

Up coming 2005 productions include a March 2006 Premiere of 100 Years Of Divas In American Music filmed as a PBS & BBC Television Special at Cincinnati’s National Underground Rail Road Freedom Center & April 2006 Premiere of “A History In Praise” held at Cincinnati’s Cincinnati Art Museum as a fund Raiser for Ronald Mcdonald House.
