A Woman Is
"A Woman Is," a cabaret-style evening of song, dance, and stories, loosely based on reality, premieres Thursday, October 7, at 7:30 pm at The Brink Lounge, 701 E. Washington Ave. in Madison. In the production, Kiki Moritsugu shares three generations worth of her personal backstage stories, from summer stock to every shopping mall in Canada to Broadway.
Part musical theater, part tribute, part exorcism, in this one-woman show, Kiki Moritsugu, a triple-threat performer (actor/singer/dancer) shares show tunes and stories from her career and her larger than life mother, the Canadian actor, Jo Hutchings.
Directed by Francisco Torres, with choreography by Lyn Pilch, music direction by Lizzie Haller, and lighting design by Patricia Micetic, "A Woman Is" is produced by TNW Ensemble Theater, formerly known as TAPIT/new works. The production is written by Danielle Dresden and based on a concept by Donna Peckett, TNWs co-producing artistic directors.
