New Millennium Theatre Company will continue its 5th Anniversary Season with MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical, opening May 2nd and running through June 28th, Friday and Saturday at 10:30 pm.
MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical is an irreverent, unauthorized, musical parody of the 80's coming of age film "The Karate Kid" from the same creative team that brought this spring's smash hit EVIL DEAD! The Musical to the stage. Filled with both original songs and some familiar favorites, MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical tells the story of Daniel LaRusso, an East Coast boy who moves to California only to have his life turned upside down by a pack of karate-wielding bullies and a pretty girl from the right side of the tracks. Just when it can't get any worse, Daniel meets Mr. Miyagi, a mild mannered handyman whose calm demeanor hides a powerful secret. With Miyagi's help, Daniel learns a little about himself, life and, of course, karate. In MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical, this well known story takes a decidedly different turn as the characters' powerful emotions force them into rousing songs and dazzling dance numbers. With influences ranging from the classic "West Side Story" to the Vanilla Ice vehicle "Cool as Ice", MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical pays homage to the original while providing a fun, entertaining and often hilarious take on a classic piece of 80's nostalgia.
The cast of MIYAGI! A Karate Kid Musical includes John Francisco, Kim Irwin Dildine, Zenna Wise, Jason Bone, Lisa Baer, Andy Grigg, Ehren Fournier, Eustace Allen, Erik Schnitger, Allison Ungar & Guy Schingoethe. Directed by Chad Wise, Musical Directors - Jonathan Webb & John Francisco, Dance Choreography- Leslie Kerrigan, Fight Choreography- Arik Martin, Stage Manger- Ian McPhaden.
All performances are at the Boxer Rebellion Theater, 1257 W. Loyola, one block west of the Red Line Loyola L Stop. The show will run May 2nd - June 28th, Fridays and Saturdays at 10:30 pm. Tickets are $15 general admission and are available at the door or call 773-989-4515. www.nmtchicago.org
