"Angels, The Musical" Producer Marcus Cheong: $20M Broadway Production Premieres at Strand Theatre

Posted by: Tom Pace - May 28, 2008

(Shreveport, LA) 5-27-08  Angels The Musical, a multi-million dollar theatrical production on its way to Broadway, announced today that it will rehearse and have its United States premiere at The Strand Theatre in Shreveport.

 

“Louisiana presented us with an incredible opportunity with the passing of a tax incentive for theatre and live performing arts productions,” said Angels' producer Marcus Cheong.  Cheong talked with Tom Pace from "The Talk of the Town" and Jan Elkins of KTBS-TV3, about the Southern hospitality, and the opportunity to launch their national tour from Shreveport, Louisiana.

“We had been considering venues to rehearse and preview the show before opening on Broadway when we learned about the state’s new legislation.  This will not only save us money, but it will give us an opportunity to help build Louisiana’s theatre industry and the state’s economy as a whole," said Cheong.
 
"What better place to start (the U.S. premiere of Angels) than at the official state theater of Louisiana—The Strand Theatre?” Cheong said.
