Logan Kirby - August 7
We hope this finds you doing well and having a pleasant day! You may have a reservation on file with us to come and see The Drowsy Chaperone; however, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have made the difficult decision to replace this show on our schedule. The Drowsy Chaperone is a massive show that requires a precise set, costumes, and a huge payroll. COVID-19 has greatly affected our finances, and while we are slowly crawling back, there are too many large issues surrounding the show that are unattainable for us to feel comfortable moving forward with the production. After much discussion, we have decided to replace The Drowsy Chaperone with a musical telling of George & Ira Gershwin's life entitled Fascinatin' Rhythm: The Songs of George & Ira Gershwin. Many of you will be very familiar with the characters that appear throughout the Gershwin brothers lives (Ethel Merman, Fred Astaire, etc...), not to mention their long list of hit songs including "Embraceable You," "But Not For Me," "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," and many more. This musical will be full of glorious Gershwin music that tells the tale of two Broadway icons. We hope that you will want to keep your reservation with us and come to see Fascinatin' Rhythm. If this show doesn't fit your theatrical taste, we are willing to transfer your tickets to another 25th Anniversary MDT Main Stage production. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we thank you for being a valued customer!
