Nits de Musicals: Swing Broadway


Barcelona is hungry for musical theatre and Nit de musicals is a clear proof of this. It was born in 2014 and it comes back as an unmissable festival after obtaining an exceptional response from the audience in previous editions. One again the show has its own personality thanks to its director, Paco Mir, a theatre man mostly known for his work with Tricicle but who also works on his own. Over the past years, he has directed productions such as El sopar dels idiotes (1998) or La banqueta (2013) at the Grec theatre. The thatre magazine Teatralnet organizes an evening that combines voice and choreography and promises to thrill spectators with a repertoire consisting of known songs from American musicals like Gypsy, Guys and Dolls and Kiss me Kate among others. The Big Band Barcelona Jazz Orquestra will play songs to be sung by an exceptional selection of performers and with a dancing company created specifically for this occasion. A theatre and music night with all the Broadway swing.

“The Catalan Broadway triumphs. Ivan Labanda was a fantastic ringmaster showing his versatile talents as an actor, singer, impersonator and tap dancer. Nit de Musicals: Swing Broadway ended with an excited standing audience.”


“Ivan Labanda, Mercè Martínez and Xavi Duch demonstrated once again why they are big names in Catalan musical theatre. The proposal shows that in Catalonia there is a generation of actors excellently prepared for the musical».

“A brilliant avenue with the feeling that the Catalan musical, and more specifically the components of this brilliant cast, have taken a step forward. A stellar Ivan Labanda (presenter, singer, dancer, impersonator), is giving entrance to the rest of the artists».

“…And the great, great Ivan Labanda comes out, acting as the Master of Ceremony. From then on, everything went like clockwork with impeccable carpentry finishes. What a great Ivan Labanda. An impressive tap was scored!”
