BERLIN (JULY 9 - AUGUST 14, 2010) - The Connecticut Cabaret Theatre is pleased to announce its production of the hip, cool musical, THE WILDEST! Hip, Cool and Swinging, directed and produced by Kris McMurray, conceived and written by Randy Johnson, Thomas Porras, Luanne Prima & Toni Elizabeth Prima. This exciting new musical features nearly 40 tunes performed on stage with a live band, including "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody," "That Old Black Magic," "Sing, Sing, Sing," and "I Wish You Love." Louis Prima and Keely Smith's musical sounds and style defined an era that has transcended generations and has become timeless in its appeal. THE WILDEST!!! arrives at a moment when Louis Prima, Keely Smith, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and other Las Vegas icons are being idolized as musical heroes. It's also about a unique era - the nightclub years of the late 50's and early 60's. It is a journey to the past that will lead some to new discoveries and others cherished memories.
Artistic Director Kris McMurray has assembled a talented cast to capture the essence and energy of yesteryear. With a talented and rambunctious cast, THE WILDEST! Is certain to entertain, get the audience snapping their fingers and singing along. Musically directed by Rebecca Francis and choreographed by assistant directors Matthew Collin Marrero and James J Moran, this show is pure fun! Starring Blanca Grande, Kelly Lucas, Catherine Rogala, Sarah Stromwell, Kristin Ceneviva, Chelsea Neville, Vicki Todd, Joe Autuoro, Jonathan Escobar, Chris Grande, Garth West, Matthew Collin Marrero and James J Moran. With this crazy talented hip and cool cast, this fun show is NOT to be missed!!
