The stars of Broadway In Chicago

Microphone on stage against red curtain

You might think that this title refers to people who are stars at their job. Well, that could be true – we have so many stars behind the scenes at Broadway In Chicago from D.J. McClaurin who is stars as a Director of Finance or Mary Brennan whose star shines bright as our Marketing War Room Manager – they are all brilliant! But I am talking “stars” in the Broadway sense – those who dazzle on and off the stage – whether as actors, dancers, singers, music directors, lighting designers – we have them all! Broadway In Chicago staff members by day and stars of Chicago stages by night!

Broadway In Chicago loves them all and is so proud of their accomplishments. These are stars bucking the traditions that all actors are waiters/waitresses. They are supporting themselves while contributing their brilliance to a theatre company rather than diners at a local restaurant.

We wish for all of them billing above the title!
