The University of Iowa Theatre Building will be closed for the summer for renovations, but that won’t stop Iowa Summer Rep! The Department of Theatre Arts will continue its rich history of summer play production with an Iowa Summer Rep touring production of Dorothy Marcic’s Respect: A Musical Journey of Women.

This new musical 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!
