Not necessarily for families….

Some slightly more adult theater productions are also opening this week and next.

 The Musical of Musicals (The Musical) opened at Montgomery Theater, 124 Main Street, Souderton and runs through May 4, 2014.

The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! June is an ingenue who can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue? Experience the story in Kansas in August in the style of Rodgers and Hammerstein; with a landlord who is a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a splashy star vehicle a la Jerry Herman; a rock musical version; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version and a version set in a speakeasy in Chicago with songs in the style of Kander and Ebb.
