The Great American Mousical, a smart and funny celebration of life in the theatre, is currently running through December 9, 2012. BroadwayWorld brings you just-released show highlights below.
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 and celebrates the two most glorious words in the English language: musical comedy!
Under the direction of theatre icon Julie Andrews, The Great American Mousical features a fantastically funny new score with Music by Zina Goldrich and Lyrics by Marcy Heisler , a savvy Book by Tony nominee Hunter Bell and Choreography by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli. Sets and Costumes will be designed by Oscar, Emmy and Tony-Award winner Tony Walton. Lighting Design will be by renowned Broadway and West End designer Richard Pilbrow. Sound Design will be by Jay Hilton.
