The Road to Qatar - 2011 - Off-Broadway

$67.50

THE ROAD TO QATAR! is a new true musical comedy about two American musical theatre writers commissioned to do the impossible-- write a larger-than-life Broadway-style

mega-musical for the Emir of Qatar including 100 actors, 40 camels, 17 fire-eating jugglers and Muhammad Ali. Surprises abound as the quirky self-professed "short Jewish writers" leave New York and begin trotting the globe in their own version of a madcap

Bob Hope/Bing Crosby adventure!

Name your musical The Road To Qatar! and in less than five words and an exclamation point you've communicated to your audience what to expect; a zany, lightweight, tuneful fish-out-of-water comedy set in an exotic locale featuring a Bob Hope/Bing Crosby-ish pair with a healthy dose of sex and romance provided by a Dorothy Lamour-ish babe.  And for a good deal of their pocket-sized ninety-minute musical, Stephen Cole (book and lyrics) and David Krane (music) deliver as promised.  At its best, The Road To Qatar! is a funny, breezy musical comedy hoot with some legitimately toe-tapping melodies.  But while enjoyable, the material isn't quite memorable, though the current production at The York has the feel of an early version of something that could be whipped into a pretty terrific show.
