Photo Flash: First Look at Aurora Theatre's MEN WITH MONEY
Full of dreams, schemes and lavish musical numbers, Men With Money will Raise the Curtain for a world premiere at Aurora Theatre from March 7-April 7! The romantic romp, set in an imagined 1950's Manhattan in which being gay is culturally accepted, follows three young bachelors looking to marry their way from rags to riches. Two gay and one straight, the men might just have what it takes to pull off the gig! Adult and teen audiences will enjoy this old-fashioned, brand-new musical in Aurora Theatre's Peach State Federal Credit Union Signature Series!
"Part of what makes Men With Money such a great show is its timely and inspirational storyline," says Director Justin Anderson. "Inspired by classic Broadway shows, Men With Money encourages people to be themselves, to chase after what they want no matter the hurdles and to learn how to listen to their heart. The show will be sure to leave audiences laughing, singing and dancing all the way home!"
