Better Than This is Fabulist Theatre’s new production coming to the Havana Theatre stage February 28th to March 9th. For decades, musical theatre has been the home of iconic female characters, but for every legendary woman even more stereotypes take the stage.
Better Than This is an original musical revue chronicling the evolution of women’s roles in musical theatre. By celebrating some of the best known female characters from My Fair Lady’s Eliza Doolittle in the 1950s to Alison Bechdel in 2013’s Fun Home, Better Than This examines why certain tropes persist and looks at changing the narrative around the female voice in musicals.
Featuring songs from the most beloved musicals of the past century including West Side Story, Chicago, Wicked and many more! Better Than This stars, Brianna Clark (Showstoppers, Fabulist Theatre’s Once On This Island), Kyrst Hogan (Kitty Night Productions’ Johnny and June), Dionne Phillips (The Broadway Chorus’ Bootie and the Beast) and Cathy Wilmot (Arts Club Theatre Company’s Mamma Mia!)
Better Than This opens February 28th with a preview “Pay What You Choose” ($5-$20 suggested, at the door)
Tickets are $24 in advance online or $28 at the door.
Tuesday March 5 is Half-Price
Friday March 8 (International Women’s Day) includes special post-show talkback
