Production at SLCC's Grand Theatre pays homage to greatest musical theater writers.

Whether you’re a musical theatre buff, or just someone who enjoys theatre once in a while, you’ll laugh at this show as it pays homage to some of the greatest musical theatre writers and composers by lovingly needling and roasting them.

Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre presents the hilarious musical theater parody, “The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!),” running Backstage at the Grand, Feb. 13 – March 7, 2020. Seating is limited.

Having received multiple award nominations, “The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)” tells the story of June, an ingenue struggling to pay rent, plagued by her evil landlord, encouraged by her wise neighbor and potentially saved by the leading man. A cast of 10 actors jump between variations of five settings and delightful musicals, each written in distinctive styles of different composers—from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. It’s a hilarious parody of musical theater.

“Whether you’re a musical theatre buff, or just someone who enjoys theater once in a while, you’ll laugh at this show as it pays homage to some of the greatest musical theater writers and composers by lovingly needling and roasting them,” said Seth Miller, artistic and executive director of The Grand Theatre.
