Central Avenue Breakdown won 5 of the top awards at last year’s New York Musical Theatre Festival including Excellence in Music, Orchestrations, Choreography & Individual Performance. It also won the coveted Daegu International Music Festival Production Award which takes the show to South Korea to perform at that festival in early July. Central Avenue Breakdown is also the first NYMF show ever to return for an special encore presentation upon its return from South Korea this July 19th-22nd at the Pershing Square Signature Theater Center.
