About the Show


Not Your Mom's Musical Theater's popular tour of the off-Broadway hit The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! visits Gorham during a mini-tour of New England in February. This hilarious satire by Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell was called "A Gift from the Musical Theatre Gods!" by TalkingBroadway.com. The show takes a simple plot - June, the ingenue, can't pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord - and creates five different delightful musicals from the same story, each written in the distinctive style of one of musical theater's most popular composers.

The laughs are non-stop as the performers tackle Rodgers & Hammerstein (complete with a dream ballet!), Stephen Sondheim (where the landlord is a tortured, artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants), Jerry Herman (a splashy star vehicle), Andrew Lloyd Webber (a rock musical that borrows from Puccini) and Kander & Ebb (set in a speakeasy in Chicago).

Audiences that love musical theater will love all of the inside jokes, but there is plenty of popular humor for everyone! This remains Not Your Mom's Musical Theater's most popular show to date. The show is rated PG-13 due to some adult humor - mostly double entendres and a tiny bit of language. It's a perfect night out for adults, teens or for families with older children.

Theater critic Michael Curtiss reviewed the show on opening night.

"Make no mistake: this isn’t hollow, mean-spirited satire just for the sake of satire; THE MUSICAL OF MUSICALS: THE MUSICAL! is an affectionate homage to an art form that’s endured for well over a century, one which honors while it gently pokes fun at the time-honored traditions of Broadway....

The laughs don’t just come from the pastiche of songs that come at the audience with varying degrees of silliness; it’s the very talented cast and their deadpan spoofs that cement the production, and elevate TMOMTM into the heights of hilarity....

[It's] impossible to stop laughing once these [gifted singers and dancers] get you started. TMOMTM rockets from start to finish, fueled largely in part by the non-stop guffaws powering it, thanks to this quintessentially clever quartet of comedians....

As done by Not Your Mom's Musical Theatre, THE MUSICAL OF MUSICALS: THE MUSICAL! is one of those rare gems: a well-written, well-played show that has plenty for those who see it, but which leaves them wanting more. Don’t miss it."
