MMC Theatre Production Workshop presents Bright Lights, Big City with book/music/lyrics by Paul Scott Goodman. Based on the Jay McInerney novel, this rock musical captures the kinetic energy of living in the big city and the tumult of being twenty-something and learning to live with grief. Bright Lights, Big City celebrates creating art as a means of processing what life throws at us.
Originally produced at New York Theatre Workshop in 1998, this is the first full revival in New York since its premiere. This production is performed by students in the Theatre Arts programs of the College with direction by Tom Wojtunik, choreography by Joshua Bergasse, music direction by Darren Cohen, scenic design by Rob Monaco, costume design by Michele Sinacore, lighting design by Amanda Rosen, sound design by Ido Levran, and voice and text coaching by Lisa Rochelle.
An opening night reception will follow the performance on Wednesday, March 10. Please note: The content of this show is not appropriate for children.
For the Thursday, March 11th performance, Bright Lights, Big City will be interpreted using American Sign Language; deaf and hearing impaired audience members should request special seating when reserving their tickets.
