The Musical of Musicals, The Musical
It's a musical about....well...musicals! Four players take a classic melodrama and present it in five very different musical theater style to provide side-splitting laughter. June (the ingénue) can't pay her rent. Jitter (the villainous landlord) says she must pay her rent. Abby (the matron) offers helpful advice. But, can Willy/Billy (the hero) arrive in time to sweep June off her feet, pay the rent and save the day?
Hilarity ensues throughout the five short acts that are satirical nods to the styles of famous composers or composer/lyricist team. Kansas in August and the charm of Rodgers & Hammerstein can only mean one thing Corn! Enter the house of wordy, clever, and just a bit gory Stephen Sondheim in A Little Complex. Dear Abby pays homage to the splashy theatricals of Jerry Herman. Andrew Lloyd Webber's signature rock opera/musicals go full tilt in Aspects of Junita. Kander & Ebb entertain you in that cabaret in Chicago called Speakeasy.
Entertaining for all ages.
