The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart, is a musical comedy that parodies musicals.

“If you like musicals, you’ll love it. If you think musicals are stupid, you’ll love it even more,” said guest director Keri Wormald. “The lyrics are clever, and we’ve done our best to remain true to the spirit of the shows of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kander & Ebb while creating a party atmosphere in the theater.”
