Petterino’s Monday Night Live (MNL), the impromptu musical showcase hosted by Denise McGowan Tracy and Beckie Menzie is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a series of Monday night events beginning at 7:30 p.m. Petterino’s is located in the heart of the theatre district in Chicago’s Loop at 150 N. Dearborn.
MNL began a decade ago with a simple concept - provide a unique entertainment option in Chicago's theater district on a typically "dark night". Monday Night Live has blended a sophisticated setting, professional atmosphere and appreciative audience for established and emerging singers to try out new work or simply have some fun.
Nearly 800 singers have stepped onto the stage over the years. Cast members from dozens of touring and local productions from theaters including The Goodman, The Lyric Opera, Porchlight Music Theatre, Kokandy Productions, Broadway in Chicago, and many others have popped up in MNL’s audience. Jazz artists, cabaret performers, opera singers, pop vocalists have also shared their musical talents.
