Cincinnati Music Theatre
Feb. 8-16
Aronoff Center Fifth-Third Bank Theatre [Downtown]

Directed by Dennis Murphy
Music directed by Linda Abbot
Choreographed by JV Katz
Produced by Kathy Beiting & Marypat Carletti

Cast: Catherine Shultz as Abby, Elizabeth Beiting-Lipps as June, Luka Ashley Carter as Willy, Jeff Richardson as Jidder, Erica Beimesche as Chorus, Marypat Carletti as Chorus, Elizabeth Leigh Taylor as Chorus, Mary Ann Smith as Host & Rob Bucher as Landlord

A musical about musicals! 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, from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. The basic plot: June is an ingénue 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, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.

  • Fri, Feb. 8 at 8pm
  • Sat, Feb. 9 at 5pm & 8pm
  • Fri, Feb. 15 at 8pm
