What City Rep does best - an upbeat theatrical concert/musical revue - has been scheduled for the company's downstairs Court Stage for nine performances during January.
Artistic Director Joanne M. Parker believes the "Break-a-Leg Revue" is just the ticket to chase those frostbitten January and post-holiday blues away and start 1991 off right.The revue is not part of City Rep's regular season and has been scheduled as a bonus production. It will feature several City Rep regulars performing their favorite songs from some great shows, with one or two previews from upcoming City Rep productions.
The program includes "When the Sun Goes Down" from "Big River," "Lullaby of Broadway," "Anything You Can Do," "Heat Wave," "Blue Skies," "Always," "Three Little Maids" (from "The Mikado"), along with numbers from "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and several Andrew Lloyd Webber tunes from City Rep's recent "That Old Gumbie Cat" revue.
The ensemble includes Jennifer O'Haley, Amy Richardson, Margo Watson, Bruce Bredeson, Brook Robertson and James A. Dale.
Peformances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 4-5, 7, 11, 14, 18, 19, 21 and 25. Tickets are $8.50 for adults and $6.50 for children. All seats are reserved. For reservations, call the City Rep box office at 532-6000. City Rep is located in the Utah Theatre, 148 S. Main.
