Music & Lyrics: Jeff Bowen. Book: Hunter Bell. Oscar Theatre Company Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse. Director: Emily Gilhome. Musical Director: David Law. October 6 – 16.
Oscar Theatre Company, Emily Gilhome’s enterprising young company who have brought Brisbane audiences The Last Five Years, A Slightly Sondheim Wedding, and the 2008 Qld Matilda Winner, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, have turned to another quirky Broadway show with [title of show], as their latest offering. It’s another in a group of small musicals, The Musical of Musicals etc., that takes the mickey out of the musical theatre genre and the joke very quickly wears thin.
