Volume 117, No. 3March, 2017

The music of Broadway icon John Kander is brought to vibrant life by Local 802 musicians in the new Kander/Pierce musical “Kid Victory.” A ten-piece orchestra has taken up residence at the Vineyard Theatre for a limited run through March 19th. The orchestra is covered under a Local 802 union contract.
