Five-time Tony Award-nominated composer Michael John LaChiusa will stay after the November 17 performance of his musical Marie Christine for a talkback with the audience at Theater Wit in Chicago.
The composer of The Wild Party, First Lady Suite, Queen of the Mist, and the recently filmed Hello Again, will answer questions about his 1999 musical based on Medea, with the action moved to 1890’s New Orleans and Chicago.
The show is produced by BoHo Theatre company at the Theater Wit, 1229 West Belmont, Chicago. Lili-Anne Brown, who has a long history of staging LaChiusa's musicals, directed this production, which is scheduled to continue through December 10.
As composer, lyricist, and librettist, LaChiusa earned Tony Award nominations for his musicals The Wild Party and Chronicle of a Death Foretold, as well as Marie Christine.
The talkback is open only to ticket holders for the November 17 performance. Tickets for that performance (and all other performances of the musical) are available online at BoHoTheatre.com, by phone at (773) 975-8150, and at the Theater Wit box office. Tickets cost $33 for Thursdays and Fridays, $35 for Saturdays and Sundays.
