About The Musical of Musicals
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. The basic plot – June is an ingénue who can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue?
The variations are a Rodgers & 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, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.
The intimate Fifth Third Bank Theater will be set as a cabaret – with tables, chairs, and a cash bar. It’s the perfect holiday gift for your loved one or an evening out with friends!
