The Andrews' close three-part harmonies will continue to be sung by Casi Maggio, Sarah Larson and Jordan Yentz, three young performers who have been making their mark on the Chicago musical theater scene. Casi Maggio was Jeff-nominated for her Kate Monster in Night Blue's Avenue Q. Sarah Larson is coming directly from her run in Theo Ubique's Passion, and Jordan Yentz has appeared in Pal Joey for Porchlight Music Theatre as well as Man of La Mancha and Camelot for Light Opera Works. Also continuing in the cast is Will Lucas, a sensation in last summer's A Cole Porter Songbook at Theo.
A Musical Tribute to the Andrews Sisters is directed and choreographed by David Heimann, who has directed or choreographed past Theo Ubique cabarets including Time after Time, A Cole Porter Songbook, Sweet and Hot, Jacques Brel's Lonesome Losers of the Night, and A Very Merry Madrigal. He also directed Theo's Man of La Mancha and choreographed Flora the Red Menace. Joining Heimann on the creative team are Music Director Alex Newkirk, Musical Arranger Aaron Benham, Scenic Designer Adam Veness, Costume Designer Bill Morey, Lighting Designer Jessica Goings, Assistant Director Christopher Logan and Production Stage Manager/ Props Designer Paige Keedy.
