The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
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 ingenue 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.
This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest-running show in the York Theatre Company's 35-year history before moving off-Broadway.
The Musical of Musicals premiered at the The York Theatre Company in New York City in 2003. The production moved to a commercial off-Broadway production at the Dodger Stages in 2005.
