Cast members from the new Broadway musical MJ and the long-running, Tony-winning revival of Chicago recently posed for photos in the Cocktail Room of Manhattan's Civilian Hotel on West 48th Street.
MJ company members taking part included Raymond Baynard, Kamille Upshaw, Wonza Johnson, Michelle Mercedes, and Carina-Kay Louchiey; Chicago cast members included Michael Scirotto, Arian Keddell, Jeff Gorti, Christine Cornish Smith, and Rachel Schur. Photos are by Santiago Felipe.
The Civilian Hotel is a 27-story, 203-room hotel designed by David Rockwell that celebrates its Broadway location by paying homage to the creative contributions of New York’s theatrical artists. Over 350 pieces of art—including sketches, models, photographs, props, costumes, murals, and custom furnishings—are located throughout the hotel, including the Olio Collection, a theatre-focused exhibit with permanent and rotating artifacts, original works, and archival photography.
MJ The Musical plays Broadway's Neil Simon Theatre; Chicago continues at the Ambassador Theatre.
