Musical Theater Heritage's Musical Mondays are "always a blast and they always sell out," says executive producer Chad Gerlt. Featuring performances from members of other outfits, such as the Coterie Theatre and American Heartland Theatre, Gerlt says local performers frequently crash the party and bring their best stuff. It's a type of post-Valentine's Day show and stars Jerry Jay Cranford, Katie Karel, John Daugharthy, Jessalyn Kincaid and Liz Clark Golson (with musical backup). "You can expect some really big showstoppers, and in the intimate theater space of the Off Center Theatre, you can bet that they will blow the roof off the place," Gerlt says. Does enthusiasm for local theater get much more exuberant than that? The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and costs $18 (the box office opens at 6:30, and seating begins at 7) at the Off Center Theatre (2450 Grand, third floor of Crown Center, 816-274-8444).
