Short Review: The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!
The play about a theatre company in distress is a loving, sometimes satirical, tribute to great Broadway musical composers. It’s a little snarky with Andrew Lloyd Webber (“I’ve Heard This Song Before,” but whip smart in its tribute to Stephen Sondheim (“A Little Complex”). A spunky cast of five sings and dances its heart out. Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm & 7pm, Wed 7pm. Through 2/11. $38; Sacramento Theatre Company, Pollock Stage, 1419 H Street; (916) 443-6722; www.sactheatre.org.
