About


On Monday, February 10, Studio Theatre is hosting A Celebration of Jeanine Tesori. As the most prolific and honored female theatrical composer in history, you know her work: VioletThoroughly Modern MillieCaroline, or ChangeShrek The Musical, and of course Fun Home, which comes to Studio later this spring in a production directed by David Muse, Studio’s Artistic Director. The evening will feature performances of some of your most revered favorites from the Jeanine Tesori songbook, performed by DC’s top musical theatre talent. David will also be in conversation with Darren Cohen, musical director of Studio’s Fun Home, about Tesori’s profound impact on the modern American musical. Our celebration will begin with a reception, continue with a seated buffet dinner, and end with a dessert reception following the performance.
