Bogart and Rockwell’s The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is structured in five acts, each of which is a mini-musical parodying (and paying homage to) the style of a legendary musical theater writers: Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kander & Ebb. Each act is based on the same classic melodrama plot: “I can’t pay the rent … You must pay the rent … I can’t pay the rent … Then I’LL pay the rent!” The Musical of Musicals, which The York helped develop and create, received its off-Broadway premiere there in 2003 with an extended run. It was transferred by Melanie Herman and The York to New World Stages in 2005 for a 500-performance commercial run. The original cast album is on JAY Records.
