The Musical of Musicals---the Musical! is 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 and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest running show in the York Theatre Company's 35-year history before moving to Off-Broadway.

In the cast are Ariella Planas (Wayne, NJ) as June, the Ingenue, Chris James (Pt. Pleasant, NJ) as Willy, the Hero, Zach Love (Cranford, NJ) as Jitter, the Villain, and Sharon McGuire (Westfield, NJ) as Abby, the Matron. The production staff consists of JoAnne Lemenille, properties; Doris Dias, costumes; Jean Lioy, backstage; James Dukelow, lighting; and Michael Bieber, sound.
