Photo Flash: First Look a WAISTWATCHERS THE MUSICAL at the Miracle Theatre
WaistWatchers The Musical! will spend five fun-filled weeks at the Miracle Theatre. Produced by Dana Matthow and starring four talented local actresses, including award-winning performer Mimi J, who wowed audiences recently in I Will Survive, the musical takes a lighthearted and hilarious look at women dealing with their relationship to food, diets, body image, and fitness, while celebrating the transformative power of female friendship on the journey to self-acceptance. Capturing audiences of all ages from start to finish, the production will run from December 14th through January 13th at the popular Coral Gables theatre.
Boasting successful tours across the country in over 20 cities, including an upcoming international tour across Australia and New Zealand, WaistWatchers The Musical! is full of high-powered energy. The production is 90 minutes of non-stop exercise, song, and dance, featuring three women and their exuberant younger trainer, as they all tackle the universal issues of dieting, exercise, plastic surgery, sex, and self-love.
Krissy Johnson, will direct and choreograph the production, taking over from the show's original director Matt Silva. Johnson has been part of the WaistWatchers family for over 3 years, performing in the show's national tour first as Cheryl, and then as Carla.
The show's original choreographer Dani Tucci-Juraga describes it best - "WaistWatchers The Musical is about strong, sensitive, passionate and evolving women who function best with humor, grit, and good friends by their side. As choreographer, getting to work with the cast is much like the plot. We are there to support each other and above all, laugh."
WaistWatcher's musical director is the show's composer, Vince DiMura, who has provided original music to accompany creator Alan Jacobson's clever lyrics.
Along with Mimi J, who will play Cheryl, the WaistWatchers cast includes Jordana Forest as Cindy, Sara Elizabeth Grant as Carla, and Angela Thomas as Connie. Nicole Stav will pull double duty as the show's MC and Stage Manager.
