The Musical of MusicalsThe Musical of Musicals (The Musical) is a 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 and 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; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version and a Kander & Ebb version 9set in a speakeasy in Chicago).

The Musical of Musicals (The Musical), starring Patricia Durante, Scott McGowan, Jenna Ravenda, Zach Mazouat. Producing Artistic Director Barbara Krajkowski, Director/Choreographer Lauren Moran Mills, Musical Director Deborah Martin
