Musical Theatre Guild Presents It Shoulda Been You

Musical Theatre Guild Presents

The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature.

It Shoulda Been You 2.16.20

Broadway’s wild musical farce with blushing brides, nervous grooms, overbearing moms, unexpected guests and plenty of crazy twists and turns.

It Shoulda Been You

Concept & Music: Barbara Anselmi
Lyrics & Book: Brian Hargrove
Additional Lyrics: Michael Cooper, Will Randall, Carla Rose Fisher, Ernie Lijoi, Jill Abramovitz

One of the funniest musicals of the decade, IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU invites you to an unforgettable wedding, where anything that can go wrong does, and love and music pop up in the most mysterious of places.

After debuting at the St. George Playhouse in 2011 and a subsequent staging at Village Theatre in Issaquah, WA, IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU opened on Broadway in 2015 under the direction of David Hyde Pierce starring Tyne Daly, Harriet Lewis, Lisa Howard & Sierra Boggess.

Musical Theatre Guild Presents The Goodbye Girl

Musical Theatre Guild Presents

One of musical theatre’s rare, modern romantic comedies

MTG presents The Goodbye Girl

A touching romance against the backdrop of Manhattan

THE GOODBYE GIRL

Music by Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by David Zippel, Book by Neil Simon

Based on Neil Simon’s 1977 award-winning film, THE GOODBYE GIRL follows the unlikely comic romance between Paula, a bitter single mother and former Broadway dancer who has been jilted one too many times, and Elliot, an opinionated actor who shows up unexpectedly with a lease to sublet her apartment. Musical sparks ensue. Simon’s collaborators for the musical were the legendary Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line) and David Zippel (City of Angels).

After an out-of-town tryout in Chicago, THE GOODBYE GIRL opened on Broadway in 1993 starring Bernadette Peters, and, in his Broadway debut, Martin Short. It ran for 188 performances, was nominated for five Tony© Awards and won the Drama Desk Award for Mr. Hamlisch’s brassy, giddy, and rhythmic score.

Musical Theatre Guild Presents Barnum

Musical Theatre Guild Presents

A colorful, dynamic spectacle with razzle-dazzle charm!

Musical Theatre Guild presents BARNUM

Traditional musical theater with the spectacle of the circus

BARNUM

Music by Cy Coleman, Lyrics by Michael Stewart, Book by Mark Bramble

Before there was the movie smash “The Greatest Showman”, there was BARNUM, the Tony® Award-winning story of P.T. Barnum who combined razzle-dazzle with brass and charm to sell humbug to cheering crowds. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’s greatest showman, BARNUM is a colorful, dynamic spectacle with heart and a landmark Cy Coleman score (“Come Follow The Band”, “The Colors of My Life”, and “Thank God I’m Old”).

BARNUM premiered at Broadway’s St. James Theatre in 1980 starring Jim Dale and Glenn Close where it played for 854 performances. It was nominated for ten Tony© Awards with wins for Mr. Dale as Best Actor plus scenic and costume design. Its 1981 West End premiere starred Michael Crawford. BARNUM was recently revived at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2018.

Join us at the circus!
