A hilarious romp through the history of musicals (well some of them anyway) -- side splitting fun, professionally performed by the troupe at Metrostage. If you know the musicals you're in for a treat. Even if you don't, it's STILL a treat. GO!!!

More Information


In this hilarious parody of musical theatre, one story — about an ingénue who can’t pay her rent — becomes five different delightful musicals, written in the distinctive styles of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, Jerry Herman and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It’s a funny and unique tribute to Broadway! Donna Migliaccio and Bobbie Smith reprise their Helen Hayes nominated roles in this critically acclaimed production along with Janine Gulisano-Sunday.
