BROADWAY BEARS
ABOUT US


BROADWAY BEARS was conceptualized in mid-2011 when Andy Mangels and Mark Brown were in the play The Secret Garden together. As both had performed in a variety of stage productions and fundraisers, Mangels suggested putting a group of performers together for the express purpose of producing live cabaret events as charitable fundraisers.

Additionally, given that male actors were often forced to shave their facial hair for roles, Mangels wanted to make sure that none of the performers would be forced to do so for this group. Scouting other performers from the stage and karaoke nights, with backgrounds ranging from Broadway to opera, the group came together in brotherhood and a love of music ...

Thus was born BROADWAY BEARS, a live cabaret group of Portland's Furriest Singers!

As a group, the BROADWAY BEARS perform songs from throughout the musical realm, from stage and screen, from male to female, from comedy to pathos, performing solos, duets, trios, and group numbers ... showing that talent comes in all sizes and can include furry faces!


BROADWAY BEARS are:
Andy Mangels - Bobby Jackson - Darin MacLeod - Donnie Vecchione


with Special Guest: Nathan Meckley


Additional Crew:
Andres Alcala (Photographer & Video/Animation Montages)


THE SONGS ARE ALSO THE NAMES OF THE SHOWS...

BROADWAY BEARS
Alumni Members & Past Performances


In January 2012, the Broadway Bears performed three concerts, benefitting AIDS Life Cycle, Pride NW, and Our House/Esther's Pantry (see program below). At that time the group had four other members, who departed due to moving and other commitments: Mark Brown, Nicholas Dilbeck, Stephen Nash, and Steven P. Worth. Two other members left in 2014 due to new jobs: Dan Fletcher and Mikey Mann, and Cory Clinton departed in summer 2015. Longtime member Johnny Cakes Amundson went on hiatus in mid-2016 to join the Portland Opera, and members Mark Steering and Clayton Herendeen finished their time with the group in late 2016.

As a group, the Broadway Bears have performed at the August 2012 and August 2013 Oregon Bear & Cub Contests, 2014's Peacock in the Park and Beartown 19 events, aboard the Crystal Dolphin riverboat, at Portland Center Stage's Gerding Theatre, and as the opening concert for 2015's Peacock in the Park!

Members have represented the group solo with performances at the Oregon Bears Holiday Show, the Imperial Sovereign Rose Court's Valentines From Hell, Athens' Cabaret, and several other charity events...
