All skate! The â€™80s cult favorite is brought to life in this rolling romp, described by The New Yorkerâ€™s Hilton Als as â€śresolutely anti-Broadwayâ€¦far sleazier and cheesier than conventional musical theatre, and it points out just how tame most other musicals are.â€ť Sounds just like a typical day at CTC, right? Hit songs include â€śMagicâ€ť, â€śEvil Womanâ€ť, and of course the eipc title track.
Directed by Michael Gray. Music direction by Joe Trainor. Set and lighting design by Vicki Neal and Richard Kendrick.
