'SKATES' MUSICAL WILL FINALLY DEBUT AT STUDEBAKER THEATER
The musical “Skates” will finally get its world premiere in Chicago, with opening night slated for May 25, 2022 on Michigan Avenue.
According to an announcement Thursday, “Skates” will be the first show in the newly renovated Studebaker Theater inside the Fine Arts Building (410 S. Michigan Ave.), starring “American Idol” alums Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young.
IN THESE DARK DAYS, HOW ABOUT A NEW CHICAGO MUSICAL?
Even without the coronavirus epidemic scrambling all our lives, Christine Rea would be setting herself up with a tough challenge. She’s creating a brand-new, Broadway-style musical, written entirely from scratch, performed with an Equity cast, two “American Idol” alums and a live orchestra, and slated for the mainstage at the Royal George Theatre in Chicago.
