Nathan Darrow Joins A CHORUS LINE at Music Theater Heritage

Music Theater Heritage Artistic Director Tim Scott has announced that film and television star Nathan Darrow will assume the role of Zach, the choreographer, in MTH's summer production of A Chorus Line.

Darrow, a Kansas City native, is perhaps best known for his appearances on Showtime's "Billions," Fox's "Gotham," and his critically acclaimed portrayal of Edward Meechum in Netflix's "House of Cards."

A graduate of Shawnee Mission North High School and also the prestigious School of Drama at NYU, Nathan is no stranger to Kansas City audiences having appeared on many stages in the Kansas City area throughout the years; however, A Chorus Line will mark his professional musical theater debut.

"I love working in Kansas City," said Darrow. "I'm really happy to be doing this musical which is also a great American play."

One of the most prolific American musicals ever created, A Chorus Line is the groundbreaking musical that set a new standard for Broadway. Winner of 9 TONY Awards as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it remains relevant, provocative and explosively entertaining. A brilliant fusion of song, dance, and compelling drama, A Chorus Line is internationally recognized as a classic, and one of the greatest theatrical events of all time.

A Chorus Line will be directed by Artistic Director Tim Scott with choreography by Kenny Personett. The production is scheduled to play 15 performances August 10 - 27 in MTH's Grand Theater on the 4th floor of Crown Center in Kansas City, MO.

Additional casting and details will be released at a later date.


Review: Cirque du Soleil's CORTEO At T-Mobile Center

If, by chance, you are still looking for something fun to do with your visitors this holiday weekend, I highly recommend Cirque du Soleil’s incredible “Corteo” now playing at the T-Mobile Center. This is family entertainment of the first order; unlike almost anything you will ever have witnessed. It will re-awaken your childhood dream of “running off to join the circus.”

Review: TOOTSIE at Starlight Theatre

TOOTSIE (The Musical), is a fun opening evening for the seventy-first season of Starlight Theatre at Swope Park across from the Kansas City Zoo. Tootsie (The Film) was so good it is preserved it on the United States National Film Registry. Add the sea-change in attitudes surrounding same-sex relationships and this show is set up to be a very tough sell. Remarkably, TOOTSIE (The Musical) absolutely works.
