Musical MainStage Concert Series presents: HAL PRINCE: FROM FIDDLER TO PHANTOM – March 2-3, 2020
The world lost Broadway Producer/Director Hal Prince last July. But his genius is evident in the musical theater legacy he left behind, a lasting handprint on classics like FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, WEST SIDE STORY, PAJAMA GAME, DAMN YANKEES, EVITA, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, FOLLIES, COMPANY, SWEENEY TODD, and PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. These talented performers will pay tribute to the man and his music:
NIFFER CLARKE’s Broadway/Off-Broadway credits include BELLS ARE RINGING and ADDING MACHINE: A MUSICAL. Also: appearances with the London Symphony Orchestra, First Stage Children’s Theatre, Skylight Music Theatre, Splinter Group, Off the Wall, and Milwaukee Opera Theatre.
JOE EHLINGER returns to Musical MainStage following his appearance in our recent THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT concert. He’s performed leading roles in more than 40 musicals and revues in Wisconsin, California, and Georgia, and currently sings with the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus.
JOEL KOPISCHKE’s been seen with Skylight Music Theatre, Milwaukee Opera Theatre, First Stage Children’s Theatre, the MSO, Present Music, Melody Top, Oconomowoc Arts Center, Third Avenue Playhouse, Forte Theatre, Northern Sky Theater, and so many more.
RANA ROMAN’s recent credits include A CHRISTMAS CAROL (Mrs. Cratchit) with the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, ON THE WINGS OF A MARIPOSA (Mami) at First Stage Children’s Theatre, and Kate/Lilli in KISS ME KATE for the Skylight Music Theatre. In March: Eva Peron in Skylight’s EVITA!
