What do George M. Cohan, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, and Stephen Sondheim have in common? How about Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Rent, and Wicked? They are all part of Parson’s Nose Theater’s journey through time, from the very beginning of what we know as “musicals” all the way to today’s little hit you may have heard of called Hamilton. There’s a lot of singing, a bit of history, and (since it’s PNT) guaranteed laughs.
Broadway, film and TV actors and directors Barry Gordon and Gary Lamb, have written an original production that you’re going to LOVE. Performed by a talented ensemble of Parson’s Nose actors, the show is a lightning-fast, light-hearted romp through the centuries, from Ancient Greece to Weehawken. A must-see for all lovers of musicals. Come laugh, learn, love, and even sing along! It’s history as only Parson’s Nose can tell it.
“The History of the American Musical” will be performed on Saturday, May 20 at 7 pm, Sunday, May 21 at 3pm and on Saturday, May 27 at 3 pm and Sunday May 28 at 7 pm.
Tickets are $10 – $30. Visit parsonsnose.org or call the Box Office at (626) 403-7667. Parson’s Nose Theater is located at 95 North Marengo Avenue in Pasadena.
