Musical mayhem. Written by Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell in 2003, Musical of Musicals gives a lovingly satirical treatment to some of the Great White Way's most famous shows, from The Sound of Music to Phantom of the Opera.
Inside jokes. Unless you're obsessed with musicals, you might not get all of the show's references — after all, there are five acts and nearly 50 songs included — but it should be entertaining nonetheless. Unless you really hate musicals. Then you really shouldn't go.
Going local. Jon-Michael Perry, who worked on numerous productions with the late Robert Ivey, directs the Footlight's production of Musical of Musicals. His cast includes Trey Barbaree, Mary Fishburne, Haydn Haring, Katie Koehler, Christina Leidel, Kyle Magley, Anthony Massarotto, Latanya Mueller, and Julian Summey.
