Respect: A Musical Celebration of Women

Hurry!  There is only one more week to catch the musical journey of women through the 20th century, written and developed by Dorothy Marcic.  RESPECT is a celebration of women through their good times and bad, their success and their devastation. While April Woodall acts as the narrator, the show begins with Marissa Barnathan, Lindsay Roberts and Lauren Rooney lamenting lost loves with such melodies as I Fall to Pieces and Johnny Angel. What follows is a simply delightful 2 hours jam-packed with Top 40 songs sung solo, in duets, by three women four.  No matter who is singing a particular song, the total effect is exhilarating. The band is seated on the stage and is comprised of Jack Daniels as Music Director and on keyboard, Adam Bailey on drums, Larry Cohen on bass and Jake Hager on guitar. Pardon the pun, but they are certainly instrumental in giving this show its pizazz.  It is impossible to sit still in your seat while listening to the performance. (People seated behind me were singing along). From basic black to glitz, the production shows how women have come a long way in gaining self-respect as well as respect at home and in the business world. This musical revue closes May 31 so get your tickets now.  Tickets are available by calling 888-264-1788. The Playhouse is located at 211 S. Columbus Blvd. (at Walnut Street). The theatre is located inside the Independence Seaport Museum.
