Reviews are in for Ana Nogueira's Which Way to the Stage world premiere at the Newman Mills Theater. The MCC Theater production opened May 10 in The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, following previews which began April 14. The show will run until May 22.
Directed by Mike Donahue, the work takes audiences back to 2015 as it follows two Broadway fans waiting outside the If/Then stage door hoping to get an autograph from star Idina Menzel. The experience they share ends up changing the course of their friendship.
The cast comprises Sas Goldberg (Significant Other), Max Jenkins (Unnatural Acts), Evan Todd (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), and Michelle Veintimilla (The Baker and the Beauty).
