Like musicals? Then you'll love The Musical of Musicals - The Musical! A musical about musicals! A hilarious satire of musical theatre where one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form.
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? Performed as:
A Rodgers and 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 splashy star vehicle.
An Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini.
A Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.
Up-Stage Theatre, 26A Moonshine Road, Upper Hutt
All tickets: $22.00
