The Connecticut Repertory Theatre’s (CRT) 2019 Nutmeg Summer Series at Storrs has pared down their schedule of musicals for this summer. Artistic Director Terrence Mann said, “We’re making a few changes this summer. Our audiences repeatedly tell us, ‘it’s just too hard to have time to see everything you offer in the summer’ or ‘we wish that the shows would run longer.’”
In order to allow for the longer performance runs, CRT is offering two shows this summer, each running for an additional week longer than they have in the past. An additional change is the 7pm curtain on weeknight performances.
The third season under the artistic leadership of three-time Tony Award nominee Mann will include, “Mamma Mia” and “Cabaret.” “Mamma Mia” will run from June 6 – 22. “We’re really trying to make our audience feel heard. The last two years, when I spoke with patrons at the theatre, and when we polled audiences, Mamma Mia! was overwhelmingly the most requested show,” said Mann.
“Cabaret” will hold performances from July 4 – 21. Subscription packages are on sale beginning March 1 for the season. Single tickets will go on sale April 1, 2019, and are available at crt.uconn.edu or call (860) 486-2113.
Both musicals are performed in the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the campus of the University of Connecticut. ASL Interpreted Performances are available for the 2nd Saturday Matinee of each show. Patrons can call the Box Office to book these seats.
