Your home is where it happens to be that you can watch “The Room Where It Happens: Broadway’s Modern Musical.”
The Sacramento Theatre Company’s new show, a holdover from the pandemic-interrupted 2019-20 season, will be presented virtually with four viewings Jan. 22–24, next Friday through Sunday. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased exclusively online.
The show is the latest installation of STC’s Cabaret Series and will be recorded on the company’s cabaret stage.
“We focus on Broadway’s new Golden Age of musical theater, innovating with topical and complicated issues, while remaining wildly entertaining and generating some of its highest ticket sales in its history,” is how STC describes “The Room Where It Happens” on its website. “In this tribute to the superstar modern musical, be entertained with songs from the newest acclaimed shows like ‘Hamilton,’ ‘Mean Girls,’ ‘Dear Evan Hansen,’ ‘The Prom,’ and many more!”
The cast is composed of Ernestine Balisi, Ryan Blanning, Griffen Dresbach-Hill, Kareem Jenkins, Elizabeth Lamora, Michael Laun and Miranda D. Lawson. Accompanying them will be Kay Hight on piano and Nick Micheels on drums.
The online-accessed performances are at 2 p.m. all three days (Jan. 22–24) and also at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next up for STC, Feb. 19–21, is the Youth Series presentation of Jean Lee Latham’s “Thanks, Awfully.” It also will be presented virtually, and is priced at $17. Here’s how STC describes the show:
“When Dick is forced to sit through an evening with his sister’s numerous friends, who are all fascinated by his fame, Dick and Dot place a bet on whether he can get through the entire evening on two words: ‘thanks, awfully.’ That is, until his one true love arrives.”
