It's a show tune showcase at More Broadway on Butler, a lively new production jam-packed with beloved classics of the stage ranging from Chorus Line to Kiss Me Kate. Built around the trials and tribulations of working in show business, this rousing yet personal performance features stories from its cast about their own theatrical triumphs and heartaches, told through songs and dances pulled from the illustrious history of Broadway musicals. Whether it's the jazzy swing of Bob Fosse's Chicago or the daring footwork of Singin' in the Rain, every musical has a story to tell, and as More Broadway on Butler proves -- sometimes that story is yours.

I thought the production was absolutely delightful. I particularly liked Mary Elizabeth Scallen's comic performance as Kate, the bright, attractive wife who has to compete with a stray dog for her husband's affection.
Paul Felder was a hoot playing his trio of supporting roles. I especially enjoyed Leslie, the therapist who allowed his patients to determine his/her gender for themselves.

A love triangle between a man, his wife — and his dog! New York power couple Greg and Kate move from the suburbs to the city expecting to enjoy their newly empty nest. When Greg brings Sylvia, an adorable stray mutt, back to their home, Kate finds herself ignored – and is surprised with Greg’s other changes. Can a longtime spouse compete with the undeniable appeal of unconditional love? “Delicious and dizzy,” says the New York Times. Featuring an all-star cast: Greg Wood, Mary Beth Scallen, Jessica Bedford and Paul Felder.
