Classic Stage Company's annual benefit Classics Gone Mad! has finally arrived! 

Held April 1 and directed by Cara Akselrad and Eric Ulloa, the part-party part-performance production takes "classic" works of the theatrical canon, and spins them on their head. Following last year's celebration, which reinvented some of Shakespeare's most classic scenes, Classic Stage is taking on the catalogue of Rodgers and Hammerstein this season.

Hosted by Jackie Cox (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Classics Gone Mad! features Julie Benko (Harmony), Jose Llana (Here Lies Love), Tony winner Bonnie Milligan (Kimberly Akimbo), Jelani Remy (Back to the Future), and The Skivvies, alongside the newly announced Claybourne Elder (Company), Elad Kabilio (Little Night Music: Mozart & Sondheim), and Jessica Vosk (Wicked).

The evening will conclude with a classic sing-along led by Marie’s Crisis pianist Brandon James Gwinn.
