The Musical Of Musicals, The Musical!
A hilarious satire, this production features the plight of June, an ingénue who can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord — or else. Told through the viewpoint of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Kander and Ebb, the story takes a roller-coaster trip through all the greats of songwriting and stagecraft. “It’s a tour de force. It’s a really fun evening, and it’s like seeing five different musicals for the price of one,” says director Jimmy Phillips. Theater veterans Joseph Reed, Shelby Fisher, Haley Hussey and Ryan Smith headline this knee-slapping comedy. Five musical geniuses under one roof at one time? Who could ask for anything more.
