A Musical Love Letter to Broadway
Below the bright lights of Broadway, in the depths of the historic Sovereign Theatre, an acting troupe of mice rehearse their new musical. When the theatre is threatened by demolition and their diva Adelaide disappears, it will take all paws on deck to fulfill the time-honored tradition: the show must go on! Filled with singing, dancing, and show biz lore, The Great American Mousical is a sharp and witty tribute to life in the theatre that celebrates the two most glorious words in the English language: musical comedy!
Music by Zina Goldrich | Lyrics by Marcy Heisler | Book by Hunter Bell | Based on the book by Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton | Scenic and Costume Design by Tony Walton | Lighting Design by Richard Pilbrow & Micahel Gottlieb | Sound Design by Jay Hilton | Hair & Wig Design by Suseon Bak | Choreographed by Christopher Gattelli | Directed by Julie Andrews
Julie Andrews returns to Goodspeed to direct the brand new musical The Great American Mousical at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn. A stellar team of Broadway luminaries form the creative team for this smart and funny tribute to Broadway musicals, including Zina Goldrich (Music) and Marcy Heisler (Lyrics) who both received Drama Desk Awards for Dear Edwina, Hunter Bell (Book) who was nominated for a Tony Award for [title of show], Tony Walton (Sets and Costumes) who has received an Oscar, Emmy and 3 Tony Awards, Richard Pilbrow (Lighting) veteran of Broadway and London’s West End, along with Christopher Gattelli (Choreographer) who recently won a Tony Award for his thrilling work on the latest Broadway hit Newsies. It will be the “event of the season” and a show that anyone who enjoys a Broadway musical will love.
