a season of showtunes. in 90 minutes.
Porchlight Music Theatre’s hit revue series is the tuneful and fun, audience-interactive evening that music theatre fans have been craving – back again for a third season and this year to be held at both Uptown Underground and the Skokie Theatre!
Hosted by Chicago favorite Rob Lindley and featuring a company of ten up-and-coming local talents, the evening is a journey from the start to the finish of the 1939 musical season on Broadway. Peppered with visuals of the era in an exciting multimedia presentation, trivia games (with prizes!), sing-alongs and more, you’ll be treated to the very best music of the “hit and miss” productions that made up a musical season on the Great White Way presented in an intimate and elegant cabaret environment.
Directed by Keely Vasquez with Music Direction by David Fiorello and featuring hit songs from the 1939 Broadway shows: The Boys From Syracuse, Hot Mikado, Knickerbocker Holiday and others.
