Two Musical Comedies On Stage this Weekend

The Mel Brooks comedy classic turned into a stage musical,  The Producers, will be on stage in Allentown for only two more days ; Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 2 p.m., at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 1533 Hamilton Street, Allentown. Tickets for the MunOpCo Music Theater production may be bought online.

Big Fish: The Musical opens in Quakertown at McCoole’s Arts and Events Place (10 S. Main Street) on Friday, September 23, 2016.  Tickets for the show, which continues through October 8, 2016, may be purchased online.

Edward Bloom has lived a full and fantastical life, populated by witches, giants, and mermaids, marked by true love that stops time in its tracks, and framed by heroics that push the limits of believability. His adult son, Will, is no longer amused by his father’s fantastical tales, insisting on a rational rather than a fantastical account of one’s life. When Edward’s health declines, and Will learns that he and his wife, Josephine, will have a son of their own, Will decides to find out his father’s “true” life story, once and for all. Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful, and truly magical musical about fathers, sons, and the stories that we use to define our identities. With spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and a funny, heartwarming book by John August, Big Fish is a magnificent “big fish” of a tale, itself — spectacular, fantastical, and overflowing with love.
