Chicago Tap Theatre launches its 20th anniversary with a celebratory performance featuring classics from its 20-year history, including some pieces that have not been seen in Chicago since their debut, and world premieres. Chicago Tap Theatre is proud to revisit pieces from some of the early choreographers that shaped the Company including Mark Yonally, Rich Ashworth, Kirsten Uttich and Kendra Jorstad and new works from Heather Cornell, Tre Dumas, Sterling Harris, Molly Smith and Mark Yonally. 


Past dances include Molly Smith's groundbreaking "Protect Trans Kids" and "Somebody to Love,” which originally premiered in Chicago Tap Theatre’s 2016 Pride Show. As in the original production, the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus will join Chicago Tap Theatre for “Somebody to Love.” 


There will also be two new commissions seeing the stage at this performance. Concert tap dance pioneer Heather Cornell, founding artistic director, Manhattan Tap, has set her masterpiece “Scrapple from the Apple” for the Company and local tap dancer, Tre Dumas, is creating a world premiere for this production.
