October 23 - 24
October 23 at Skokie Theatre
October 24 at Uptown Underground
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 a popular Chicago music theatre “name” 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.
Featuring hit songs from the 1939 Broadway shows: The Boys From Syracuse, Hot Mikado, Knickerbocker Holiday and others.
