Bears, Neil Berg Set to Bring “100 Years of Broadway” to Newark

Broadway composer Neil Berg is bringing his musical, “Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway” to Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark, N.J. An ensemble of the best variety from several popular Broadway musicals, the show will be performed prior to the Newark Bears baseball game on July 14.

“Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway”, which will be hosted and musically directed by Berg, will recreate the greatest moments from the finest shows of the century featuring the actual stars of shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar and Jekyll & Hyde.

The show will begin at 3:30 p.m. Following the performance, there will be a meet-and-greet with the stars of the show.

At 6:35 p.m., the Bears will take on the Quebec Capitales in a Can-Am League contest.

Berg’s show has toured the country raising funds for Covenant House. Proceeds from the performance on July 14 will go to Covenant House in Newark.

Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in New Jersey that provides food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and an array of other important services to homeless youth between the ages of 18 and 21.

Fans can see both the musical and the game by purchasing a ticket at or by calling 973-848-1000.

  1. Another great outing for Caleb Cuevas, this time he only allowed single digit runs because they took him out after 2! Is there not one starter on this team that can get a win? I love how gun happy the Bears were releasing guys early in the year but have Cuevas who has not won a game in his career, Parker won his first in 2 years, Rivera on a nice losing streak and Fitton a clear reliever continuing to pitch. Switch it up Bears!


    1. Mike Ness is 5-2, and has pitched well in all but two of hist starts. Brian Parker and Matt Fitton have been ok, outside of a bad inning or two in most of their games. With better fielding behind them and a little more hitting, they might have better records. Cuevas and Rivera should not still be in the rotation, but I don’t see many alternatives on the roster. Mike Petrowski could take over one of the spots, but who do you suggest for the other one? It’s unlikely that there are a bunch of good, unemployed pitchers out there waiting for a chance to play in Newark. 🙂
