UW junior Denny Le was sixteen when he got hooked on live musical theater. He went to see In The Heights at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theater and was mesmerized. “I was astounded by the amount of talent on stage,” he recalls. Le hopes audiences will say the same about Sweet Charity, the inaugural production of the UW’s Musical Theater program. He will perform in the musical, which runs from November 14 to November 23.
Musical Theater is a new interdisciplinary program in the College of Arts and Sciences, funded through a combination of College and private support.
