TAP Presents “Madame Sherry”

Third Avenue Playhouse’s (TAP) summer/fall season continues with the merry and madcap musical comedy, Madame Sherry, now through Sept. 3.

“I got a chance to step in on the Madame Sherry first read-through/sing-through,” said TAP staff member Amy Ensign, “and I couldn’t stop smiling all day.”

When a man-about-town’s secret life is about to be discovered by his stuffy benefactor, the ensuing amorous misadventures take him from his Manhattan dance studio to a yacht. It’s music and merriment on the high “C’s” in a show which was one of the iconic hits of its era, but which hasn’t been seen in a professional production in more than 30 years.

TAP’s own James Valcq has put a bit of 21st Century polish on the delightful gem by Otto Harbach and Karl Hoschna. With musical direction by popular Milwaukee pianist/performer Jack Forbes Wilson, the comical cast of characters includes Debra Babich, Anna Mae Beyer, Drew Brhel, Anna Cline, Adam Estes, Kaleigh Rae Gamaché, Ryan Patrick Shaw and Kelsey Wang. Singing and dancing alongside his talented crew, Valcq also directs.

The cast, production, and creative team of Madame Sherry will be on hand Aug. 7, 14, 21 & 28, immediately after 2 pm matinee performances to answer questions in these informal talk-back sessions. Valcq will lead the sessions.

Performances will be held at 7:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday, and at 2 pm on Sunday. A special Tuesday evening performance will be held on Aug. 30. For more information visit
