History Meets Hilarity in Crown Point History Meets Hilarity in Crown Point
by BWW News Desk on May 15, 2017 in South Bend

In the last couple of years, a renewed interest in original theatre occurred.  A historically-based show debuted in New York off-Broadway and was an immediate hit.  6 months later the show graduated to a run on Broadway and was nominated for 16 Tony Awards, winning 11 - including Best Musical - along with winning awards in music and literature.  That musical then made a Chicago residency debut last year along with launching a national tour.  That show was called Hamilton.  Now that energy and passion for this kind of theatre is being brought to Crown Point Community Theatre with their new one-off show titled Hysterical Figures - an event where a large group of artists write, rehearse and perform a series of original historically-based plays in one day - on Saturday June 3rd @ 7:30 PM .
