Beyond the Ingenue-Selections and Talkback


"I'll shout and start a riot...be anything but quiet!" Music Theatre of Madison will present a series of musical theatre songs that look at real women's issues. Ingenue (ahn-jeh-noo) characters, who appear in most musicals, are defined by various sources as "naive," "unwordly," "unsophisticated," "innocent," "young and with little experience," and more. This revue portrays female characters struggling with and embracing the issues that affect today's women. Rare gems, brand new works, and a couple of well-known tunes will explore friendships, sexuality, aging, heartbreak, gender-identity, self-acceptance, motherhood, and more. Most are written by female composers and lyricists. In addition to public performances, this piece will travel to libraries, community centers, retirement homes, and schools to illustrate the power of women onstage for the broadest possible audience.
