The 2023 – 2024 Season


January 13 – February 25, 2024
Ruth Page Center for the Arts

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Original Book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse
New Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman

Directed by Artistic Director Michael Weber
Choreographed by Tammy Mader
Music Directed by Nick Sula

Chicago will get a kick out of this 90th anniversary production of Cole Porter’s smash-hit musical comedy, Anything Goes. Launching Porchlight’s 29th season, this legendary toe-tapping voyage across the Atlantic is filled with laughs, romance, intrigue and, of course, lots of tap dancing in this farcical and merry, musical classic. Porter’s iconic score includes a shipload of tunes that built the Great American Songbook including “Anything Goes,” “Friendship,” “You’re the Top” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.” 


May 11 & May 12, 2024
The Studebaker Theater

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Artistic Director Michael Weber

Porchlight celebrates the 40th Anniversary of one of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated works with a new special event concert staging. Audiences will experience Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer-, Tony- and Oliver-winning musical masterpiece with the original Broadway orchestrations and an all-star cast – live on the historic Studebaker stage. Based on Georges Seurat‘s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” which is on display just down the street at the Art Institute of Chicago, this limited engagement brings to life the rich score telling the story of the months leading to the completion of Seurat’s famous work in 1886 and the effects of the artist and the art on people over the following 100 years.
