Transcendence's "Broadway Under The Stars" is a series of award-winning concerts featuring accomplished Broadway and Hollywood performers under the stars in the majestic open-air winery ruins in Sonoma's Jack London State Historic Park.

Performers from Broadway and beyond, including artists from The Book Of Mormon, Wicked, Les Miserables, 42nd Street, Hairspray, Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia and more.

Each evening begins with pre-show picnicking on the great lawn, alongside the vineyards of the park (with multiple wineries pouring and food and wine available for purchase), and concludes with an evening of inspirational entertainment that Before It’s News dubbed “...goosebumps all around.”

Recently named "Theater Of The Year" for the second consecutive year by Broadway World San Francisco and the #2 "Outdoor Concert Venue You Shouldn't Miss" in the United States by USA Today's 10BEST, this concert series offers sensational evenings in wine country you'll never forget.

It was a real treat to see the tremendously talented cast and orchestra perform in this beautiful winery ruins. Dinner is available from really good food trucks before the shows, and there's nothing quite like sitting under the stars to enjoy the caliber of talent Transcendence Theatre Company is known for.

Broadway Under The Stars is certainly as good as it gets in the North Bay for live theater entertainment and after seeing shows in SF likely the entire Bay area. The theme for last nights show was Dance The Night Away and the talented group of performers, most straight from Broadway did just that. Mixed in some exceptional dancing to... More

This is an under whelming event but for the cause it might be worth it. This company donates a partial proceeds to the Jack London State Park which I think is super because it is a historical land mark. An evening with Transcendence usually consists of 8-12 "melody's" of a broadway musical arrangement that has dance and singing. Usually featuring... More

Tickets were easy to obtain via their website and the venue in the park is really special. Run by a combination of volunteers and performers... More

Best ever night at Jack London State Park. Show was fantastic. Brink your own picnic or enjoy the food trucks. Great selections of wine by the glass or bottle.

Imagine the fresh California air, history, grapevines in the distance, the setting sun, quality and exuberant entertainment.... I've laughed, cried, gotten lost in memories, and clapped and cheered til it hurt... all in one evening!! Go if you get the chance (but bring a jacket or blanket cuz it can get awfully chilly some evenings)...

Took skeptical parents to watch this. Beautiful setting, great show, very slick and well rehearsed. Amazing voices and a varied act. Wish I had dressed little smarter than jeans and a t-shirt mind!
