Madison Square Garden Entertainment & The Mahdi Theatre Company announced that Chicago’s BRONZEVILLE The Musical will take The Chicago Theatre stage on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 7:30PM.
Chicago’s BRONZEVILLE The Musical is a thought-provoking story that depicts testimonials, laughter, tears and voices of great courage that translates the experience of African Americans as they journeyed to Chicago. The production features vibrant choreography, soulful singing voices and spell-bounding performances delivered by Chicago’s very own community actors. Additionally, the production includes an original musical score that celebrates Chicago legends: Mr. Robert Abbot, founder of the Chicago Defender; Lorraine Hansberry, playwright and activist; and the famed Lindy Hoppers, who danced their hearts out at the Savoy Ballroom located on 47th and South Park Way.
The engaging production incorporates many colorful tunes in various forms of jazz, blues, gospel and spirituals and will include anticipated guests of Chicago such as the Mahdi Theatre Company’s Jazz Orchestra, community artists and musical guests.
