It helps to be familiar with the portfolio of American musical theater when you see this fun-filled show now at the Carnegie Stage in Carnegie.. It references more the two score musical classics in this bright and cleverly created spoof by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart.
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:
Rodgers and Hammerstein
(complete with dream ballet),
Andrew Lloyd Webber,
and Kander & Ebb.
Ryan Patrick Kearney and Brittany Graham in "The Musical of Musicals"
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?
This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest running show in the York Theatre Company’s 35-year history before moving to Off-Broadway.
