About New Faces Sing Broadway

From 1934-1968 a series of musical revues entitles "New Faces" was instrumental in introducing the public emerging talent with names like June Carrol, Robert Clary, Imogene Coca, Jane Connell, Professor Irwin Corey, Henry Fonda, Alice Ghostley, Ronny Graham, Billy Hayes, Tiger Haynes, Van Johnson, Madeline Kahn, Eartha Kitt, Robert Klein, Carol Lawrence, Paul Lynde, Virginia Martin, Bill McCutheon, John Reardon, Maggie Smith, Inga Swenson, and many, many more.

In tribute, Porchlight Music Theatre announces a new Chicago revue series, New Faces Sing Broadway!

Hosted by a popular Chicago music theatre "name" and featuring a company of Porchlight up-and-coming talent, the evening is a journey from the start to the finish of one specific musical season on Broadway, peppered with visuals of the era in an exciting multimedia presentation, the very best music of the "hit and miss" productions that made up a musical season on the Great White Way will sing again in an intimate and elegant cabaret environment.

For the real music theatre aficionados, the evening will offer occasions to "name that show tune" in a fun and fast-moving music theatre game where participants will be able to win Porchlight tickets and swag and audience members will be invited to occasionally sing-along as the chorus of some of the best-known hits from that Broadway season.
