The new show bears the unwieldy title "The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)", and right off the bat, it focuses on perhaps the best known musical of all: "Oklahoma."
As you may recall, that show opens with the line "There's a bright golden haze on the meadow." In "The Musical of Musical," that famous cadence is taken in an absurd direction.
SHOW EXCERPT "Oh, the chipmunk is reading The Bible, well now there's a remarkable thought…."
This ridiculous image of a rodent reading a religious text opens into a broader parody.
SHOW EXCERPT: "Oh, what beautiful corn, what beautiful, beautiful corn. What's this in my tooth? It's a kernel of truth! Shucks, what beautiful corn…."
"The Musical of Musicals" also gleefully skewers shows that are dark and decadent.
SHOW EXCERPT: "Drink your vine, 'cause life's a Cabernet…. You might get a drinkie, you might get a smokie. And if you're kind of kinky, zen it might be okie-dokie. In za Speakeasy, it's hard to saaayyyy…."
