The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra presents On Broadway with Kander & Ebb: Celebrating Chicago, Cabaret and All That Jazz, a world-premiere pops production, Oct. 4-5 at the Hilbert Circle Theatre in downtown Indianapolis.

Created by ISO principal pops conductor Jack Everly, the performances feature the talents of Tony winner Beth Leavel, Nick Adams, Ted Keegan, Nikki Renée Daniels and Jessica Rush.

In this fully orchestrated production, press notes state, "the four-decade songwriting partnership of Kander and Ebb comes to life with many of the duo’s significant stage musical hits and contemporary classics, including the music from the highly-acclaimed Cabaret, Chicago and the film 'New York, New York,' and lesser-known pieces from Funny Lady, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, The Rink and more. The Indianapolis Symphony will also pay tribute to Kander and Ebb’s long association with actress Liza Minnelli with 'Ring Them Bells' from 'Liza with a Z,' the Emmy-winning television special produced by Ebb."

On Broadway with Kander & Ebb: Celebrating Chicago, Cabaret and All That Jazz is produced by Ty Johnson, senior pops producer at the ISO. Staging/choreography is provided by Jennifer Ladner, and costuming is by Clare Henkel. David Levy is the writing and creative consultant, and Greg Sanders serves as the vocal supervisor and production pianist. Lighting is designed by Laura Glover.



Show times are Oct. 4 at 11 AM and 8 PM and Oct. 5 at 8 PM.

The ISO’s home at the historic Hilbert Circle Theatre is located in downtown Indianapolis on Monument Circle. For information and tickets, contact the ISO at (317) 639-4300 or visit IndianapolisSymphony.org.
