Mad About Broadway is a celebration of musical theater songs from the classics by Gershwin, Kurt Weill, and Cole Porter to newer shows like Waitress, Wicked, and Ordinary Days. You'll also be delighted by selections from composers Kooman & Dimond, Jeff Blumenkrantz, and Goldrich & Heisler. The show will be a mixture of love ballads, tales of heartache and pain, and hilarious comedy sung by Kathy Wurster and Jenny Haugen and accompanied by Ryan Henning and Laura Stelljes. Come on out for a night that'll leave you laughing, smiling, shedding a tear or two, and whistling a happy tune on your way home!
