A Grand Night for Singing | Mercury Theater | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through March 10 2013
Price: $25-$59
The Mercury Theater is aiming to join the ranks of old-school musical-producing companies like Drury Lane and Marriott Lincolnshire--which is fine, since it would be nice to have one within the city limits. And this joyous, reverent revue sends Mercury off on the right foot. Framed by Jason Epperson's elegant, starlit backdrop and accompanied by a six-piece band, Marya Grandy, Robert Hunt, Leah Morrow, Stephen Schellhardt, and Heather Townsend sing 30 songs from the Rodgers & Hammerstein songbook. They sail past schmaltz to achieve grandeur and sincerity. The whole affair is made even better by being acoustically perfect. --Dan Jakes
