“The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!” is a musical about musicals! This hilarious satire of musical theatre takes one story and portrays it in five acts, each written in the distinctive style of a different composer/lyricist, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim.

The basic plot: June is an ingénue who cannot pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue?

The variations: a Rodgers and Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version as a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander and Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago. Appropriate for all audiences.

Music by Eric Rockwell; lyrics by Joanne Bogart; book by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart; stage direction by Kate Leonard; music direction by Danielle Hutchison.

“The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
