It began with Guys & Dolls and ended with The Sound of Music, the decade of the 1950’s was Broadway’s Golden Age. Never was there a time when so many great composers contributed to the American Musical creating such classics as West Side Story, Gypsy, My Fair Lady, The Pajama Game, The King & I, and many more. This original Revue, written and conceived by MTH founder George Harter, features music from the most celebrated era in Broadway history.
One of the world’s best-known and meow-velous musicals! Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and based on Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats by T.S.

When Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. Lerner and Loewe’s award-winning story of Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady, is widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all time.
One of the most influential musicals in history, Show Boat redefined how musical stories were told.
