Musicals Tonight!, now in its 14th Season, is a not-for-profit theatre company in New York City primarily dedicated to the revival of "neglected" musicals. Since their inception in 1997, they have revived well over 65 musicals in staged concert form from such greats as Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, and Rodgers & Hart. 

The 2011-2012 Season is featuring five musical revivals including Jerry Hermans' Milk and Honey (1961); All American (1962) by Charles Strouse and Mel Brooks in 2011, and Li'l Abner (1959) by Johnny Mercer; Sitting Pretty (1924) by Jerome Kern and P.G. Wodehouse; and Cole Porter's Something for the Boys (1943) this spring.
