WISP brings cabaret theater to Old Saybrook with staged Broadway concert selections from Dear Evan Hansen, Chicago and Les Misérables
The First Church of Christ and WISP Performing Arts Initiative have teamed up to bring cabaret theater to Old Saybrook. Under the guidance of husband-and-wife team Karen Wagner Iovanna and Robert Iovanna, the new Black Box Cabaret space allows performers to truly connect with a live audience in an intimate setting. With a family-like atmosphere, everyone is encouraged to bring their own dinner, sit back and become part of the show.
WISP’s current production, Staged Broadway Concert Series features songs from Tony award-winning musicals Dear Evan Hansen, Chicago and Les Misérables. With an amazing cast made up of professional actors/singers and talented young performers, WISP is bringing three of Broadway’s greatest hits to life, cabaret-style. Choreographer Lauren Celentano, from the national tour of A Bronx Tale, has stayed true to the original Fosse choreography while adding a little spin to “Cell Block Tango.” The vocals in Les Misérables are as beautiful and intricate as seen on the Broadway stage. Starring as Jean Valjean is the New York City Light Opera’s Eirich Simo. Dear Evan Hansen boasts an incredibly talented cast of young performers. Join us for an unbelievable evening of song and dance through the wonderful world of theatrical storytelling.
WISP’s Staged Broadway Concert Series runs August 13–15 at the First Church of Christ, 366 Main Street, Old Saybrook, CT. Air conditioning and wheelchair accessible. Seating is limited. For further info please call 203.494.1633.
