The Great American Musical

Musical Demo Perusal Materials


We've all seen the classic musicals about making musicals, but what if there were a musical about making a musical-within-a-musical? Now there is! And it's destined to be the next Great American Musical!

Broadway has a rich and colorful history of musicals. From the time of Showboat, to 42nd Street, to A Chorus Line, many musicals have explored the concept of being a musical about a cast making a musical! Well, The Great American Musical, tells the story of a theatre troupe that is putting on a musical about putting on a musical! This show pokes fun at the "musical-within-a-musical" genre as well as poking fun at classic Broadway stereotypes in general. You'll find an overworked extra, a geriatric starlet, the one macho chorus man, the chorus man with a music degree who therefore knows everything, and just plain wrong songs that debase and devalue women (just like in the old classics!). The Great American Musical should be a delight to Broadway enthusiasts of all ages!
