Event Navigation

June, an ingénue who can’t pay the rent, is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man comes to her rescue? In an evening of variations on a theme, this basic plot is musicalised the way Rodgers & Hammerstein might have envisioned it, taking place in Kansas in August, complete with a ‘dream ballet’.

The story is then done in the style of Sondheim, featuring the landlord as a tortured, artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge because they don’t appreciate his art. When presented a la Herman, the story becomes a splashy star vehicle and in the style of Lloyd Webber it’s a rock musical, with ‘borrowed’ themes from Puccini. The story is re-told one last time in the style of Kander & Ebb, set in a cabaret in Chicago.
