COST: Suggested Donation at the door | $10.00

The Maquoketa Art Experience is pleased to present the University of Iowa Department of Theatre Art’s Iowa Summer Rep touring production of Respect: A Musical Journey of Women on Sunday, June 22 at 2:00 pm at the Ohnward Fine Arts Center in Maquoketa, Iowa. This new musical, written and created by Dorothy Marcic, tells the journey of women using Top-40 music from songs like “Someone to Watch Over Me” to “I Will Survive.”

Marcic combines excerpts of more than 60 songs with women’s own stories about finding dreams, lost love, relationship issues, entering the workforce, gaining independence, and more. From the codependence of “I Will Follow Him,” to the anger of “These Boots are Made for Walking,” to the cynicism of “What’s Love Got to Do with it,” and finally to the strength of “Hero,” this show is more than just a story worth telling, it’s a must-see and must-hear production!
