Our 2013-2014 Season
Cincinnati Music Theatre (CMT) is proud to announce their high stepping, high flying 2013-14 season.
The season will take off on the right foot in November 2013 as CMT presents the Pulitzer Prize winning musical A CHORUS LINE. Set in an empty theatre, on a bare stage, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It's what they've worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It's the one opportunity to do what they've always dreamed -- to have the chance to dance in a Broadway show. Brian Anderson, who contributed award winning choreography to CMT’s 42nd STREET and HAIRSPRAY, will direct and choreograph this stunning musical-verite, a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compelling human drama. This musical for anyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line features a book by James Kirkwood and Nicolas Dante with music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban.
Come spring 2014, audiences will be transported to that place “where dreams are born and time is never planned” when CMT presents the high flying classic PETER PAN. Skip Fenker, who has directed CMT’s productions of CHICAGO, DROWSY CHAPERONE and HAIRSPRAY among others, will direct this tale of the boy who wouldn’t grow up. This timeless, enchanting musical is filled with fantasy, adventure, Lost Boys, Indians and Pirates. Celebrating its 60th Anniversary of its Broadway debut, PETER PAN is based on the play by James M. Barrie and features music by Moose Charlap and lyrics by Carolyn Leigh with additional music by Jule Styne and additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. This favorite of children of all ages will make you believe again as it flies into your heart, full of faith, trust, and fairy dust!
