This is the last weekend to see The Foreigner at Pennsylvania Playhouse in Bethlehem and Court-Martial at Fort Devins at Steel River Playhouse in Pottstown, and the first weekend to see the Tony nominated musical [title of show] at Civic Theater in Allentown.
Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, decide to pen a musical for a theatre festival – even though deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. [title of show]—taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter, Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression as they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. A love letter to the musical theatre, [title of show] is a funny, sentimental, and joyously entertaining Tony nominated musical.
