PANAMA HATTIE, THEODORE & CO et al. Set for Musicals Tonight in '10-'11
Musicals Tonight!, now in its 13th year and honored with an Obie Award, is a not-for-profit theatre company in New York City primarily dedicated to the revival of "neglected" musicals in a manner affordable to most audience members. Since its inception in 1998, we have revived well over 50 musicals in staged concert form (charging only $25 per ticket and operating under an Actor's Equity Association Showcase Code). The list of creators of the shows presented is a veritable Who's Who of American Musical Theatre - legendaries such as Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, and Rodgers & Hart.
The 2010-2011 Season includes five musical revivals for less than the cost of one Broadway show: Panama Hattie (Cole Porter's 1940 musical); Three Wishes for Jamie (1952 by Ralph Blane (Meet Me in St. Louis); I'd Rather Be Right (1937); Theodore & Co (1916 by Ivor Novello and Jerome Kern -- an American Premiere!); and Up in Central Park (1945 by Sigmund Romberg).
Musicals Tonight! is the only theatre company to offer a variety of matinees. In the Fall, Wednesday and Thursday matinees are at 2:00; Fridays at 12:00 noon. The Spring season matinees are on Wednesdays and Fridays at 2:00; Sundays at 3:00 PM. Evening shows Tuesday through Saturday start at 7:30.
