Long a Chicago staple for high-quality original musicals, the Sigman Brothers venture outside their musical theater comfort zone into narrative prose. The winners of the 2021 BroadwayWorld Award for Best Musical are spreading their wings as they produce their first-ever Halloween 2022 play, In Memoriam.
Boasting high-caliber acting such as BroadwayWorld Chicago Award nominee Heidi Reinhofer in the lead role of Mia, and ably backed by two-time BroadwayWorld Chicago Award winner Brian Oyler Van Ferro, In Memoriam tells the story of Mia, a young stage manager in a haunted theater, as she prepares for a show on Halloween night. Throughout the play, Sigman Brothers spared no expense with visual effects and Halloween thrills that are revolutionizing Chicago streaming theater history.
The play, written by Michael Sigman and directed by BroadwayWorld Chicago Award winner Jerry Sigman, was written in collaboration with the cast to create an immersive narrative with a great twist at the end. The costumes, ranging from aliens to ghosts, were made by BroadwayWorld Chicago Award nominee Teresa Sigman. The play was filmed in 4K for live paying audiences from September 23-25, 2022 to be released in 4K for Halloween 2022.
“Being involved in a supernatural play like In Memoriam is another feather in my cap,” says Ferro, who plays Clay, “and being able to see Heidi Reinhofer expand her wide acting range is a great showcase for this meticulously crafted production. “
As a special treat, In Memoriam airs on the Sigman Brothers Facebook page on October 28, 29, and 31 at 8:00 p.m. CT and October 30 at 7:00 p.m. CT.
