Hometown star Miles Mykkanen and Broadway conductor Adam Rothenberg — the singer and pianist duo that brought you Sing Happy last summer — return to Emberlight for a new cabaret…with a twist! Characters promises a fun, spontaneous, unique evening of musical hilarity as the duo performs fan-favorite songs from some of theater’s most memorable characters.  Be ready for songs from all sorts of genres, from patter-songs from The Music Man to romantic arias from La Bohème to showstoppers from Gypsy.

The duo may even put their skills to the test by literally pulling songs from a hat on stage and performing whatever emerges! The whole family will enjoy a spectacular evening of music, laughter and surprises with this lively musical revue unlike anything you’ve experienced before.


There are two ways to attend Characters: Purchasing individual tickets or buying one of our season passes.  Our passes offer bundled tickets for the biggest discounts of the season, plus Gold Tier seating, no fees, a 2023 Souvenir Program, and invitations to private champagne toasts with the artists.
