Fun Broadway musical, [title of show], arrives in Columbus June 18

Written by Sarah Mills Bacha

The approach of summer invariably puts arts lovers in the mood for fun. With that in mind, CATCO will produce an amusing Tony Award®-nominated musical called [title of show], which opens June 18 at the intimate Studio Three cabaret space in the Vern Riffe Center.

[title of show], first produced in New York City in 2004, was an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, which selected the show for production. It subsequently played on off-Broadway, Broadway and then London.

“In 2004, two struggling theatre types decided to submit a new musical for the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The catch? They only have three weeks to put the show together. Their solution? Create a musical about two struggling theatre types trying to create a musical in three weeks with a little help from their friends,” said Joe Bishara, CATCO associate producing director and director of [title of show].

“It all adds up to a smart, funny show, perfect for summer and packed with hilarious, believable dialogue with the pace of a rollercoaster ride,” he said.

[title of show] follows other successful CATCO cabaret-style musicals, Forbidden Broadway’s Greatest Hits: Vol. 1, and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, and will appeal to the same audiences, as well as “anyone who enjoys Seinfeld, Avenue Q and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Bishara said. What makes this show different is that there is no end date – that’s up to theatregoers to decide. “We hope the open-ended run will allow ample opportunity for Columbus theatre patrons to check out what The New York Times hailed as ‘… the class clown of Broadway,’ ” he said.

Starring in the show are Jonathan Collura, Annie Huckaba, Bradley Johnson, and Elisabeth Zimmerman.

“I’m hoping to bring Jeff to life on the stage in a great way, because, as I read through the script, I find we have a lot of the same sarcastic sense of humor,” Collura said. “I’ve been a huge fan of [title of show] for several years. It has fantastic music, plus while, on the surface, it seems to be just a funny show about a couple of guys writing a show, it really does have a lot of heart.”

[title of show] will be presented Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Visit catcoistheatre.org for details and how to buy tickets.
