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. The basic plot: June is an ingenue who can't pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue?

As a parent of one of the cast members you might think that I may be a little biased. Well I am because I was blown away by the sheer professionalism of all those involved. All of the perfomances have been a sell out and I can see why. Be quick and get a ticket.....

If you like musical theatre you will love The Musical of Musicals!
The cast sing and dance their way through five acts in different musical styles to a wonderful piano accompaniment with comedy galore.

If you see one show at the fringe, make it this one.
Top marks, it’s a five star show.

In the week that the great Broadway producer and director Hal Prince died, The Musical of Musicals is just the tonic. If you’re a musical theatre fan and enjoy affectionate satire in the tradition of Forbidden Broadway, this will be right up your Great White Way. Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell provide spot-on homages to Sondheim, Lloyd Webber and co, while the on-stage Kids From Musicality - Jack, Lucy, Robin, Rowena and Andrew - display an enviable mastery of singing styles. As for the dancing, they can demystify De Mille and fake Fosse with the best of ‘em. They also have comic timing to spare, bags of charm and a rather brilliant pianist partner in Annabel.

Congratulations to the whole production team for a show that deserves to be a big Fringe hit... one singular sensation just isn’t enough, we’re already planning a return visit.

Parodying every musical ever made (almost), this utterly ridiculous production involved five acts dedicated to musical theatre composers such as Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Any die-hard musical fans will get a real kick out of spotting all the references within the show.
