Break A Leg: An Abridged Broadway Experience

Break A Leg: An Abridged Broadway Experience

Mon, July 30

8:00 pm

The Chris Farley Cabaret at iO Chicago

$12

This event is all ages

Do you love Broadway, but don't have the time or the funds to get out to NYC to see your favorite shows? Check out Break A Leg at iO Theater. Each show will take a beloved Broadway musical, and cut the runtime down to under 90 minutes. The plot and the music will all be there....just shorter.

Each show will feature an ensemble of 6-8 rehearsed performers, ready to tell the story in a fast-paced, new light. The ensemble will be joined by a Guest Artist from the Chicago Theatre Community....but...the Guest Artist has to audition for their role in front of the audience, and will be given their script...once they book the role (i.e. at the top of the show)!

It will be a night of laughs, singing, improvising, and all around fun.

Created/Produced/Directed by Michael Idalski

Guest Artist: Caitlin Cerza

Ensemble: Annie Pfohl, Lisa Lull, Clara Flaherty, Frankie Leo Bennett, Britain Gebhardt, Sam Button-Harrison

Pianist: Tyler Kivel
