What Dreams May Come: a Musical Revue
Jimmy Calitri, resident director and Managing Director, Theatre
Shakespeare’s quote from Hamlet serves as both title, and basic theme for the songs included in this revue. Centered around dreams of what we want to do, what we wish we’d done, and the unknown of our futures, ten singers take to the stage to tell us of their deepest desires and their personal journeys. The songs in the revue span more than five decades of Broadway and include selections from eight musicals including Sweet Charity, Jekyll and Hyde, and The Addams Family; these alone garnered 11 Tonys among them during their original and revival productions.
Rhode Island is the home base for director Jimmy Calitri, and he is joined by fellow Rhode Islanders Lila Kane as musical director, Chelsea Cook as choreographer, and Daniel Caplin ’14 returning to his alma mater as lighting designer. Megan Chang is the resident vocal coach, and a recent addition to the state herself.
