Porchlight Revisits: lost musicals. in staged concert.

NEW THIS YEAR — THURSDAY MATINEES!

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.

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.

Join each Porchlight Revisits staged reading on its own (single tickets are just $35 each) or subscribe to the series to ensure the best seats and a 15% discount off the single ticket price.

All Porchlight Revisits productions take place at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts, 1016 N. Dearborn.
