About the Show:
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.

The matron – Mother Abby
