MusicalFare Theatre, Western New York's most awarded and only professional musical theatre company, presents the 2nd production of its 2011-2012 Season, the Regional Premiere of A CLASS ACT. Edward Kleban was the Tony-winning lyricist for the Broadway classic, A CHORUS LINE. Upon his death in 1978, a trunkful of songs from never-produced musicals was found by his friends and A CLASS ACT was born. Featuring songs in the classic-Broadway style and characters from his life including his A CHORUS LINE writing partner, Marvin Hamlisch and the show's creator, Buffalo's own Michael Bennett, A CLASS ACT tells the story of a remarkable man and the ups and downs of his life and career in the theatre.

The production stars Louis Colaiacovo, Bobby Cooke, Doug Crane, Mary Coppola Gjurich, Adrienne Lewis, Marc Sacco, Nancy Sam and Lisa Vitrano. Set Design is by Chris Schenk, Lighting & Sound Design is by Chris Cavanagh, and Costume Design is by Kari Drozd.
