About Glitterati. . .

Glitterati ProductionsTM was founded by John Nasca and Tiffany Nasca and later joined Christine Rivera and Michelle McKenzie-Voigt. Glitterati's first production was a commercial production of Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig which ran three month at the Theatre Building Chicago. Next was the classic The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me by David Drake.
Separately the Glitterati ensemble has been involved with many theatrical venues including Circle Theater, The Halsted Theater Centre, Tony n Tina's Wedding, Pegasus Players The Theater Building, Pride Films and Plays, and the Drury Lane Theater. Future plans include producing several works which are under consideration. The Glitterati producers are dedicated to the American art form of musical theater and sophisticated comedies.

John Nasca-Producer, Director, Designer: Either as a Producer, Director, Designer or Manager, John has been involved in the Chicago theater community for several years.

As a director, some of John’s favorite gigs were Moon Over Buffalo, Gypsy, No, No, Nanette, The Ritz, Beautiful Thing and the staged reading of Mr. Shaw Goes to Hollywood.

Michelle McKenzie-Voigt-Company Member: Born in Texas but raised in New England, Michelle is an Actors Equity Membership candidate and a summa cum laude graduate of Northwestern University, where she was a double major in theater and art history. She returned to the stage in 2008 after a 10-year absence and has been blessed to be busy ever since. Her first role upon her return also remains her favorite: Rose in Gypsy, directed by John Nasca. With roles ranging from Shakespeare (Lady Capulet in Romeo and Juliet) to camp (the Captain in Poseidon: An Upside-Down Musical), favorite recent credits include From Generation to Generation (Norma – Midwest premiere), The Wedding Singer (Grandma Rosie – Midwest premiere), Beautiful Thing (Sandra), All Shook Up (Sylvia), and the title role in Mame. For many years, she was an Associate Director for Chicago Tonight on WTTW Channel 11 and program host for classical music station 98.7 WFMT on Saturday afternoons. She is a game show winner, the happily married mother of a wonderful son, and plays a fierce game of cutthroat charades.
Christine Rivera-Associate Member: Upon returning to Chicago with her BA in English from the University of Iowa Christine kick started her theatrical endeavors on the backstge crew of the North Riverside workshop production of Moon Over Buffalo.
