Something Rotten and Newsies
May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
O!ur “Broadway Comes to Chicago” series continues with a look at two musicals that are all ready garnering great advance ticket sales and lots of buzz here in Chicago!
What can you expect from a musical whose marquee promises that: “All Actors Promise To Memorize Most of Their Lines.” You can expect a LOT of laughs!. Something Rotten is one of those musicals that you just can’t forget. It is outrageously funny. Truly one of the funniest musicals I’ve ever seen. the first act contains a song called, “A Musical” that is so funny, so over the top that it earned a standing ovation in the middle of the first act. I honestly do not ever remember seeing that happen at a Broadway show before. The music is great, the situations are wacky and the storyline will have you laughing from beginning to end.
Newsies is a hit Disney Broadway musical that has been wonderfully adapted to the stage. I in my opinion, the stage version was varsity superior to the movie. Newsies explodes with energy, drama, dynamic situations and history. It’s simply a perfect show for theater lovers of all ages and very appropriate for families. When it first appeared on Broadway, Newsies won the 2012 Tony award for best choreography and best score of the musical. I know it will be a fan favorite during gets return appearance at the Broadway in Chicago venue.
