The music of Grammy Award- and Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz will be celebrated, cabaret-style, in Defying Gravity: The Music of Stephen Schwartz at the Roxy Regional Theatre, running for two weekends only, beginning June 29 and continuing through July 7, at the historic venue in downtown Clarksville.
Presented as a companion piece to the Roxy's current musical Captain Louie, which was also composed by Schwartz, Defying Gravity features songs from Wicked, Godspell, Pippin, Rags and more, performed by company members Josh Bernaski, Jama Bowen, Ryan Bowie, Hannah Church, Kaitlin Doughty, Regan Featherstone, Humberto Figueroa, Erin Keas, Travis Kendrick, Ashley Laverty, Sean Ormond and Rob Rodems, with Tom Thayer on piano.
This musical revue is presented as part of the Roxy's "On The Terrazzo" Series, which features performances in the intimate setting of the theatre's lobby. A limited number of tables and chairs will be available, and seating is general admission.
