Prospect Theater Company’s The Hello Girls is set to play a one-night-only concert at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The production will also offer a free, family-friendly mini-concert at the National World War I Memorial in D.C. May 5.

The musical, commissioned and developed by Prospect Theater Company, premiered Off-Broadway at 59E59 Theaters in 2018. Members of the Off-Broadway cast will reunite for the concerts, including Ellie Fishman (Into the Woods), Arlo Hill (The Phantom of the Opera), Chanel Karimkhani (The Goree All Girl String Band), Andrew Mayer (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), Ben Moss (Oratorio for Living Things), and Lili Thomas (Chicago). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The Hello Girls tells the story of the first women soldiers in the U.S. Army, who served on the front lines during World War I. The show features music and lyrics by Peter Mills, with a book by Mills and Cara Reichel. Choreography is by Christine O’Grady, music direction is by Ben Moss, and the production is directed by Reichel.

The D.C. concerts are presented by the Doughboy Foundation, with support from the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission. The NYC performance is presented as part of Prospect’s IGNITE series.
