Throughout the many lives of Natalie Merchant -- as lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs in the '80s, as the platinum-plated solo act in the '90s, as one of the new millennium's most ambitious and avant-garde musicians -- one thing has remained the same: her uncompromising artistry. With a voice that quivers with a rare emotional intensity (and intelligence), Merchant inflects every song with poetry and power, lifting hits like "Because the Night," "Carnival," "Wonder" and "Jealousy" to the level of art. Now she is touring in support of one of the most hotly anticipated releases in years, the self-titled and self-produced Natalie Merchant, which NPR recently praised for giving "full rein" to Merchant's "stronger than ever" voice. Now this consummate artist appears live at The Chicago Theatre. Learn More
In 1954, Julie Andrews made her Broadway debut in this charming musical comedy. Now, she has directed a fresh version of the show to share with a new audience. This Chicago Premiere is part of a national tour produced by Goodspeed Musicals.The Boy Friend
features a cast of 18 of Broadway’s most talented singers and dancers, including Jessica Grove (Thoroughly Modern Millie) in the lead role of Polly Browne opposite Sean Palmer (Saturday Night Fever) as Tony.
Behind-the-scenes is an “A-list” creative team including choreographer John DeLuca (whose credits include Broadway’s Minnelli on Minnelli, Chita and All That Jazz featuring Chita Rivera, and the national tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Music of the Night). Scenic and costume design is by Oscar-, Emmy- and Tony Award-winning Tony Walton (whose many Broadway designs include the recent revivals of Our Town, I’m Not Rappaport, The Man Who Came to Dinner and Annie Get Your Gun.) Walton recently received the Oscar Hammerstein Award for lifetime achievement in musical theater.
The Boy Friend is produced for Goodspeed Musicals by Executive Director Michael P. Price.
