“We were thrilled to have it kick off our 35th Anniversary Season and couldn’t have asked for a more joyful, energetic and thoroughly entertaining musical to start the summer. It was one of the best attended shows we have produced with consistently full-houses.”
Shami McCormick, Artistic Director, Depot Theatre
Route 66 is a musical romantic comedy about a charmingly neurotic freelance journalist from Chicago and a laconic cowboy photographer from Arizona that team up to do a magazine piece about the historic old highway. In the process of rediscovering America, they fall in love with one another --- and with all the colorful characters they meet along the way. The show sports a spirited country pop score and featured roles for a small ensemble of strong actor/singers.
