Anyone who lives in or near Chicago, loves John Hughes films and thinks they might work better as musicals should point their GPS units to the Studio Be Performance Space at the corner of Barry and Sheffield. Why you ask? Because starting this Thursday and running every Thursday till April 29, 2010, you can catch, The Breakfast Club Musical. Over three years in the making this adaptation of John Hughes’ classic film is full of all original songs and dance numbers that will make you feel as good as the original movie, and give you a whole new look at a classic. This is a heartfelt hommage to one of the greatest movies of our generation, it is NOT a parody.
All original songs are written by Jason Geis, and composed by Jessica A. Hunt. Script is adapted by Jason Geis. Directed by Jason Geis and Scott Hogan. Music Direction by Jessica A. Hunt. Choreography by Cassie Speerschneider.
