We’ll visit the Temple Theater located in Sanford, NC for this performance. 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. The 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? The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock opera; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.
