One of Porchlight’s most popular offerings, Porchlight Revisits returns! Now in its fifth year, this special series brings together music theatre aficionados to visit three musicals that opened on the Great White Way but have since gone “unsung.” The finest music theatre artists in Chicago dust off these neglected treasures and, fully staged with script in hand, escort you to the world of Broadway’s past.
Set in Paris in 1893, it’s the story of La Môme Pistache, who decides to feature the notorious Can-Can on her café’s stage in defiance of Aristide Forestier, a young, overzealous magistrate who has prohibited the titillating dance. Will Pistache’s flouting of the law end her business—and her love life?
To enhance your experience, before every Porchlight Revisits production, audiences are invited to the “Behind the Show Backstory” multimedia presentation, created and hosted by Artistic Director Michael Weber, discussing that evening’s production including the show’s creative history, juicy backstage gossip and much more.
