Michael John LaChiusa to visit Spinning Tree’s “Hello Again” May 24

Five-time Tony Award nominee Michael John LaChiusa is visiting Kansas City’s Spinning Tree Theatre to view the Friday, May 24 performance of his musical Hello Again and to conduct a talkback about the show.

Tickets for the 8:00pm performance, which include the post-show talkback, are available by calling (816) 842-9999 or at www.spinningtreetheatre.com. Seating is limited, and securing reservations in advance is highly recommended as this event is expected to be sold-out.

LaChiusa wrote the music, lyrics and libretto for the 1993 Obie Award winning musical, which premiered at New York City’s Lincoln Center Theatre. Spinning Tree’s production marks not only the Kansas City premiere of Hello Again, but the first time Kansas City audiences have had the opportunity to see any show written by LaChiusa, one of the American musical theatre’s most celebrated and respected living writers.

LaChiusa recently won the Dramatists Guild of America Award for Queen of the Mist, and is nominated for multiple 2013 Drama Desk Awards for Giant. His other works include The Wild Party, See What I Wanna See, Marie Christine, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, First Lady Suite, Bernarda Alba and Little Fish.

Spinning Tree Theatre is Kansas City’s newest small professional theatre company, and is committed to investing in local, professional talent and producing intelligent, thought-provoking and entertaining plays and musicals. Hello Again celebrates Spinning Tree’s two-year anniversary, and is their fourth Kansas City premiere.
