Chicago Daily Herald: ‘Broadway Princess Party’ Makes Local Debut at Schaumburg’s Improv

Article Originally Published on

Most fairy tale shows just feature one princess. But with the touring “Broadway Princess Party,” you get three.

Soon making its local debut at Schaumburg’s Improv Comedy Showcase, the show stars three actresses who originated princess roles on Broadway: Laura Osnes in “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” Susan Egan as Belle in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and Courtney Reed as Princess Jasmine in Disney’s “Aladdin.” There’s also a special guest “Prince Charming” in the mix — original Broadway and touring “Aladdin” star Adam Jacobs.

Reed starred in the first “Broadway Princess Party” back in 2013. She grew up in Elgin and attended Roosevelt University in Chicago, so she’s especially pleased to be a part of the show’s local appearance.

“For the first time in several years, I’ve been able to star in a show close to my hometown,” Reed said. “It’s really exciting to be back near Elgin and have all of my college buddies and hometown people coming. I’m so thrilled.”
