On Friday, September 9, 2005 at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square, 4 NYMF shows - Monica: The Musical, The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World, The Wild Women Of Planet Wongo and Don Imbroglio showed off their stuff, and BroadwayWorld was there!
Monica: The Musical - In the face of the national scandal that was the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, Monica! The Musical dares to answer the crucial question: Exactly how did something this ridiculous happen? And it dares to answer this question in song.
The Shaggs: Philosophy Of The World - Compelled by prophecy, a desperate father forces his misfit daughters out of school and into the recording studio. The Shaggs have been called "better than the Beatles," "the worst band ever," "Godmothers of Outsider Music." Based on a bizarre true story about surviving destiny.
The Wild Women Of Planet Wongo - Blast off for zany sci-fi adventure as two astronauts and their robot crash a planet of sexy, beautiful women. Destination: a far-out, 60's-inspired, rock musical comedy where youth, idealism, true love, lust, revolution and snack food triumph over warped authority..
Don Imbroglio - The quintessential opera/ musical "cross-over" piece, Don Imbroglio offers a side-splitting music-theatre experience filled with laughter and singing, opera and family, divas and bimbos, love and pastry, and a requiem for a dead cat. This user-friendly musical farce is The Godfather meets The Marriage of Figaro meets Noises Off. Don Imbroglio is smart and funny, and the songs are tuneful and memorable.
