When a musical theatre legend comes to town to see a production of his own show, he must be celebrated! And we were so thrilled to be able to do so for Michael John LaChiusa – composer and lyricist of The Wild Party. LaChiusa arrived in Toronto over the weekend and attended two performances of The Wild Party, facilitated a workshop with this year’s Banks Prize winners and our RBC Apprentice Program performers, and wowed an audience of patrons* and donors with an exclusive Q&A (hosted by Mitchell Marcus), featuring performances from music theatre students at Sheridan College.
