Thursday, May 7, Bartell Theatre’s Drury Stage, 7:30 pm
The musicalized true tale of two young men trying to write a musical in three weeks for the annual New York Musical Theatre Festival. The candid script is what gives this play its charm: It is a commentary on the creative process, featuring silly banter as the characters pitch lines and ideas while they comment on the play’s material. ALSO: Friday and Saturday (7:30 pm), May 8-9.
Broadway musical about writing musicals, 4/24-5/9, Bartell Theatre-Drury Stage, at 7:30 pm Thursdays-Saturdays, plus 2 pm, 5/3. $20. 608-661-9696

Let's put on a show! And let's submit it to a musical theater festival! But the deadline is only three weeks away. We don't have anything to write about. How about we write about what to write about? What should we put in the space on the application that asks for the show's title? Let's just say [title of show]. In this love letter to musical theater and the joy of collaboration, two guys write a musical about writing a musical.
