Madison Lyric Stage has announced that it will be returning to the stage this summer for an all-outdoor 2021 season.
“It has been a long and painful year of loss and isolation for so many of us,” said Marc Deaton, Artistic Director of Madison Lyric Stage in a press release. “We are thrilled to be able to once again present live theater – and do it in a way that will be safe for our audiences, casts and crews. I believe we are all eager to once again come together in community to experience the joy that can only come from live performance.”
The season will kick off with “The Sun Sits Low: An Evening of Stephen Sondheim.” The showcase will include music by the famed composer performed by 14 singers.
Performance Dates: June 11-13, 2021
