Jul 19, 2011
Petterino's (150 N. Dearborn St.), the downtown theater district go-to restaurant, presents "Monday Night Live," beginning at 7:30 p.m., Monday, July 25, with guest performances by select cast members of WEST SIDE STORY.
I like to be in America! Dine on Petterino's classic American fare while enjoying songs by WEST SIDE STORY cast members, in addition to the singers who regularly showcase their talent during the weekly cabaret-style "open mic."
The tour of the smash hit Broadway revival of WEST SIDE STORY is coming to Chicago at the Cadillac Palace Theatre (151 W. Randolph St.) July 19 - August 14, 2011. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents' Broadway direction will be recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director on Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins choreography is reproduced by Tony Award-nominee Joey McKneely (The Boy from Oz, The Life).
WEST SIDE STORY is written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award-winner Arthur Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) in his Broadway debut.
Petterino's "Monday Night Live," currently in its fourth year, is hosted by Chicago entertainment impresario Denise McGowan Tracy and Beckie Menzie. Menzie has appeared at venues including Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Room in New York and received numerous awards for her work as a cabaret entertainer. MNL has hosted more than 300 singers, from Tony Award winners to aspiring amateurs, since its debut as an impromptu musical showcase in 2007.
Diners can partake in light bites such as appetizers, sandwiches and salads, the full menu or Petterino's three-course "Seven After Seven" menu featuring a choice of seven appetizers, seven entrees and seven desserts for $19.95. Complimentary valet parking is available after 7 p.m.
A $15 per person dining minimum is required for a table at "Monday Night Live." Reservations are recommended but not required and can be made by calling Petterino's at (312) 422-0150 or visiting www.Petterinos.com.
