"The 20th anniversary has already created quite a buzz as Porchlight has received congratulations and compliments from luminaries like Stephen Sondheim, Harvey Fierstein, Lonny Price, Linda Kline and John Bucchino. Our platinum anniversary season featuring all Sondheim Mainstage productions and a special concert presentation of the music of the rare TV special Evening Primrose was created for those who cannot get enough of Sondheim's incredible skill, wit and the undeniable magic he creates on stage," said Managing Artistic Director Michael Weber. "We also continue to excel in offering memorable theatrical experiences with the return of our sold-out Porchlight Revisits... "lost" musicals in concert series and special events such as Chicago Sings where this year's audiences will experience the best of Chicago music theatre talents gathered to perform the music of the legendary Walt Disney Studios songbook in concert. More special events are in the works and will be announced throughout the season. The excitement of our 20th anniversary is palpable and we hope that audiences will join us for this celebration," continued Weber.
