Great All American Disaster Musical, The
Full Length Musical, Comedy
Book by Tim Kelly
Music and Lyrics by Jack Sharkey
Two of America's most popular playwrights team up for the first time to create this tale of an unscrupulous movie producer who insidiously cons six major stars (via six different scripts) into believing they are each the star of an upcoming movie, and by crafty shooting-schedules keeps them fooled until the movie's made. There are 18 wildly funny musical numbers that spoof the foibles of Hollywood, like Plato Voltaire's "You Genius, You!," odious Baby Bernice Bumble's "Tappin' to the Top!," and Flint Wormwood and Apassionata Abalone's show-stopping duet called "Practice Makes Perfect."
