The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)

Feb 8, 9, 15 & 16 2019

Aronoff Center – Fifth Third Bank Theater  

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. The basic plot: June is an ingénue 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, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is directed by Dennis Murphy.

Aronoff Center – Fifth Third Bank Theater 

Home explores many facets of the title location through song. Featuring 20-plus tunes from Broadway,  movies, pop culture, and    more, we welcome audiences into our home at the Fifth Third Bank Theatre for an evening of music. Home is more than just four walls and a street number, it’s a place imprinted on hearts and minds. We will look at home at different times in our lives and what home can mean. How it’s both welcoming and a place many want to escape. Home is sweet nostalgia. Home is painful. Home is a goal. Home is traditional. Home is unconventional. Home is a launching point. Home is an anchor. Home is what you make it, where you make it, when you make it. We’ll go from the places we grew up to the places  we still seek. Conceived and written by CMT board member Mark D. Motz, Home will be directed by Michele Mascari.


We are most proud to have performed in the JARSON KAPLAN THEATRE since the opening of the Aronoff in 1995.

We look forward to seeing you here!
