New York City Show 2015
The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular will be staged for the first time in the U.S. at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday October 7, 2015.
The two performances, one at 3pm and another at 7.30pm, will be hosted by Michelle Gomez who portrays Missy, the latest incarnation of the Doctor’s arch-nemesis the Master.
Michelle Gomez comments;
“I was a big fan of Doctor Who before I joined the cast, and I love Murray Gold’s powerful and emotional soundtracks for the series. This live show has been a big hit with fans of the series in other countries, and I know that Doctor Who fans in North America have been waiting for their turn to see it. I’m so excited to be presenting the first-ever American performances, and to be doing this in the city that has become my home. I can’t wait ’til this fall to see how the amazing U.S. audience reacts to the show being staged in the Big Apple. I’m honored to be a part of it.”
The show will feature over 100 musicians and singers under the talented conducting baton of Ben Foster. Fans can expect to see some of the Doctor’s most fearsome adversaries live on stage including Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon, Whispermen, and more. The live performance will be accompanied by a big screen presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past decade of Doctor Who.
Tickets are now on sale via the venue box office and website.
